Bell Buckle plans event
The thunder will roar into Historic Bell Buckle May 17 during its annual Motorcycle Days. Known for its great country music, antique shops and tasty country cooking, Bell Buckle’s newest tradition is “All About Motorcycles.”
Bell Buckle Motorcycle Days has the exclusive distinction of being designated the official Tennessee State Bike Show Championship.
Beginning at 9 a.m. at the stage area behind the stores in downtown Bell Buckle, participants can enjoy a poker run that will take them through some of Tennessee’s finest country roads for only $25 and an additional $10 for a second hand. They’ll receive an official event T-shirt and enjoy “good time rock and roll” by the band Sticky Kim and a barbecue lunch catered by the Bell Buckle Café.
Those who want to attend the event, but do not have a motorcycle, fear not, a spokesman said. “Your $10 gate fee will provide you a barbecue lunch catered by the Bell Buckle Café and access to the musical entertainment and all the fun.”
There will be prizes and give-aways, vendors, a 50/50 raffle benefiting the Bell Buckle Fire Department and much, much more.
“Come out and see some of the finest custom bikes around, enjoy some good old rock and roll music, and feast on the famous Bell Buckle Café barbecue,” a spokesman said.
The bike show will include classes for sport bikes, mild customs, full customs, trikes and antiques and classics. Each class will feature trophies for first, second and third. There will also be a trophy for Best of Show and the Peoples Choice.
General admission is $10 and includes entry, food and entertainment. A one-day event pass is $25 and includes entry, food, entertainment, a T-shirt and entry into the poker run.
