The Thunder from Down Under Second Annual Boots & Stilettos event is scheduled for September 2-3. The last time the event was held the large number of motorcycles in town led to calls to local media wondering what was going on.
Boots & Stilettos is hosted by The Bledsoe Family Community Center; Knight Riders (The Rebirth) from Sanford, Florida; and Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Central Alabama.
Activities will begin Friday, September 2, at 5 p.m. at The Bledsoe Family Community Center, 1854 Lashley Road, in New Site. Friday evening activities include a Meet and Greet, Seafood Boil and a Disco featuring DJ Short Dog. Entry fee is $15 for Friday or Saturday or $20 for both days.
Saturday’s activities will begin at 11 a.m. with a charity ride for MS hosted by The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Central Alabama. The cost of the ride is $15 and includes admission to the Saturday Boots & Stilettos events.
Beginning at 1 p.m. there will be a raffle, games, food, drinks, and other fun. The Show & Shine Bikes and Antique Cars contest begins at 3 p.m. with prizes for best sport bike, sound system, saddle bag, 3-wheeler, and antique car.
