The second annual Bob’s Biker Blast promises to be a weekend of more – more food, more music, more stunts, more bikes! Joining the ranks of the GoDaddy holiday party, but open to the general public, the three-day event hosted by Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale, Go AZ Motorcycles and spirited Valley entrepreneur and philanthropist Bob Parsons, is a chance for bikers, wanna-be bikers, bike enthusiasts and music lovers to have a “blast” and help make a difference.
The second annual event will be held October 11-13, 2013 and will feature headline performances by blues rock legend Grand Funk Railroad and country music star Gary Allan.
The three-day event kicks-off Friday evening at Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale with food, drinks, live music by Aero Train, mechanical bull riding and fashion show.
Saturday’s day-time event includes live local music, food trucks and activities across the 14 acre motorcycle campus, as well as a special appearance and autograph signing by Mark Boone Junior, “Bobby” from Sons of Anarchy.
Concert gates open at 4 p.m. Pre-show entertainment includes Twin Peaks Bikini Contest and performances by School of Rock and Girls Nite Out. Two custom motorcycles, a Triumph Bonneville Café Custom and a 2014 Softail Slim, will be given-away by none other than Mr. Bob Parsons himself before Gary Allan takes the stage.
Motorcycle endorsement is good for free concert admission for the rider plus one passenger. For all others there will be a $20 requested donation.
“You know, we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time,” said party grand-marshal Bob Parsons. “Between the bikes, grub and kick-ass performances there is not much else a person could ask for, except maybe to benefit a great cause … and we are doing that too!”
One-hundred percent of ticket sales and all proceeds raised will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital which will celebrate its thirtieth birthday later this month. To help celebrate the lives saved over the last thirty years, admission will be free for Phoenix Children’s Hospital Alumni.
Sunday, bikers will rally at the dealerships for an early morning charitable poker run. Phoenix Children’s Hospital patients and alumni will participate in the ride, dealing hands and offering high-fives.
Extreme motorcycle stunts by Hollywood stunt rider and Speed Channel host Jason Britton will take center stage and have thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies grasping the demo track barricade Sunday afternoon. The all-ages event will also feature performances by Team Arizona’s freestyle motocross team, Sunday football on 60” screens, a beer garden and food.
Bob’s Biker Blast is located at the Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale and Go AZ Motorcycles dealerships just off Frank Lloyd Wright & the 101 at 15500 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.
