2020 THUNDER BEACH AUTUMN RALLY IS BACK ON!Dates: 2020-10-21 - 2020-10-25
Location: Panama City Beach
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – OCTOBER 6, 2020
We have never been more excited to announce that “The Rally Is On!”
2020 has been a weird year with Covid-19 affecting everyone’s way of life and Thunder Beach was no exception. The Spring Rally was understandably cancelled and just when we thought that the Autumn Rally would follow suit, there was a game changing turn of events. On September 25th, Governor DeSantis ordered the entire state into Phase 3 of the Re-Opening Plan which lifted most of the restrictions from the state level. It was only after this announcement that we were able to secure a special event permit for the 20th Annual Thunder Beach Autumn Rally which will be Oct 21- 25, 2020.
We understand that Covid-19 is still a major factor in your decision to travel to an event. Please know that the safety of our riders, staff, and the local community is, and always will be, paramount to us. We have put safety protocols in place to insure the safest possible event for everyone involved. Please check out thunderbeachproductions.com for our complete list of Covid-19 Safety Protocols.
In addition to the added safety measures, there will be other changes you will see. For this event, the Official Thunder Beach vendor villages will be at Frank Brown Park and Harley-Davidson of Panama City Beach. As usual, the Official Partner Venues will be at Hammerhead Fred’s and Sharky’s Beachfront and Tiki Bar. The schedule of events will be coming online shortly.
We would like to thank Visit Panama City Beach, the City of Panama City Beach, and especially you, the loyal patrons of Thunder Beach for your patience as we have navigated these uncharted waters. See you in a couple weeks!
