Thunder beach rally 2012There are no fences, no gates, no admission charges, and no parking fees at the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally. In fact, all of the fun — five days of nonstop activity set at eight venues around Panama City Beach — is absolutely free.

This is the 14th year for the event, billed as “the most biker-friendly free motorcycle rally in the United States.”

Activities for the spring rally (there’s another one coming up in the fall) include two kickoff parties, a bike parade, poker runs, bike shows, and exhibits. There’s a Miss Thunder Beach Pageant, a tattoo contest, and live music.

The spring rally, which generally draws around 80,000 people, is scheduled for May 2 — 6. The Official Show Magazine, available at each venue, includes a map of all the venues and other local points of interest. The map, plus more information about the event, is also posted on the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally Facebook page.
