Thunder Beach in Panama City Beach returns for Spring 2019

Thunder Beach takes place at Frank Brown Park and runs from May 1st- 5th, 2019. This event is one of Panama City Beach’s biggest events of the year. The spring rally takes place just before the summer season swings into full gear, and the fall rally takes place once the season has died down. Bikers from far and wide come to Panama City Beach to experience the beautiful scenic rides along the Emerald Coast, great local cuisine, and true southern hospitality! The Gulf of Mexico starts to warm its waters as the summer sun bakes down. It’s a beautiful time to visit.

Enjoy endless activities including pageant contests, live music, Moto-X Jump Shows, and much more! You won’t want to miss the White Tie Rock Ensemble or Big Engine. Bands from far and wide are sure to get your motor revving. You can check out the rally’s sponsors as well including Sharky’s, Hammerhead Fred’s, and Harley Davidson of Panama City Beach, featuring great food and fun atmosphere. As always, admission is free, and parking is free as well. Thunder Beach is taking donations for those affected by Hurricane Michael.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites is centrally located in the middle of the action and is just 4 short miles away from Frank Brown Park. After a long day of exciting concerts, shows, and demos, how does a relaxing dip in our beachfront hot tub sound? Maybe a splash in the pool and a drink at the Indigo Bar & Grille is just what you need.
