A perfect storm of three thundering biker rallies and two Trump Train events will be rolling through the Cowboy Capital of the World region deep in Texas Hill Country this first weekend of October.
The 19th Annual Texas Hill Country Thunder Rally is back with an October 1-4, 2020 event to be held at Bandera’s Mansfield Park on Hwy-16.
Consisting of tent camping, poker run, vendors, food, and field events, there will be music throughout the day Friday and Saturday. Their bike show, tattoo contest, and Sunday morning church service are popular. 21 OR OVER, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Because of 2020 health concerns, there will be a covered stage to enjoy outdoor concerts and contests in “the wide-open fresh air, under the bright stars of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. The big bar has been relocated under the Pavilion and close to the stage.”
“Ride the beautiful Texas Hill Country all day then come back and shop with our many vendors,” their promotional material states. “Enjoy your meals with one of nine Food vendors located outside the Barn, then go shop with over 30 Inside Vendors (spaced out) and over 40 Outside Vendors, before enjoying the evening concerts and contests.”
“The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. We start it off loud! Hot Bands rock the night away…We will treat you so many ways you are bound to like one or two.”
The 19th Annual Frogs for Freedom Hill Country Motorcycle Ride proceeds will help widows and children of fallen SEAL team members and Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen Warriors (SWCC).
The ride will be held at the ‘Biggest Little Bar in Texas,’ the 11th Street Bar on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020.
The first Frog event raised $9,000. In 2017, the group raised an historical $43,000.
Rain or shine, registration opens at 9:00 a.m. with the first bike leaving at 10 a.m. Preregistration ends Sept. 30, 2020.
The fun event includes a collector ride shirt, the ride, a Bar-B-Que plate, live music, dancing, 50/50, door prizes and a live auction. The street will be blocked off to accommodate motorcycles and festivities.
