About the Venues
The Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally boasts four amazing venues for a five-day, fun-filled adventure.
The venues include:

– Harley-Davidson of PCB: Take a lift on the complimentary shuttle and head over to this Harley-Davidson dealership to see what’s new and enter to win a new Harley-Davidson. There will also be vendors and exciting events to be announced.
– Hammerhead Fred’s: If you like seafood, this is the place to be. Enjoy the local catch of the day alongside live music. This venue is also home to the Miss Thunder Beach pageants.
– Sharky’s Beachfront Club: Life is better at the beach, and that includes Sharky’s Beachfront Club. Come here for free music and free parking for each day of the rally.
About the Poker Run
There are two Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally poker runs – one on Friday and one on Saturday. The suggested donation is $15 per bike, but they are technically free to enter.
