The weekend is upon us and time once again for the list of events going on in and around the Bradenton - Sarasota - Venice area:


THUNDER BY THE BAY

Thousand of motorcycles take over downtown Sarasota for the weekend. Thunder By The Bay :: Home

Events include:

Thursday -- Born to Be Wild Kick Off Party at Sarasota Ford dealership, 7 pm - midnight, tickets $100/person.

Friday -- Hogs on Hillview Bike Show, 6 - 11 pm, free admission, food vendors, on Hillview Street off of US41, south of downtown.

Saturday & Sunday -- several downtown streets are blocked off to traffic and taken over by motorcycles, live bands, food & drink vendors. Great street party, sort of a kinder and gentler version of Daytona's Bike Week. Saturday 11 am - 11 pm, Sunday 11 am - 6 pm.
