There's a whole lot of noise coming to St. Pete Beach.
St. Pete Beach BikeFest will hit the sand by the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort from Nov. 15-19, and it's got a music lineup that'll get more than a few motors running: Motley Crue singer Vince Neil on Nov. 16, country singer-songwriter Colt Ford on Nov. 17, and prog-metal outfit Queensryche on Nov. 18.
The outdoor concerts will start arond 8 p.m. each night, and are all free and first-come, first-served for general admission. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. VIP tickets are available with resort lodging packages; those start at $189 per night and include seats near the front and free food and beer.
The concerts are only part of the weekend's activities. There will be poker runs, barbecues, beer chugs, bikini contests and, of course, bike shows and vendors aplenty. All events are free and open to the public, but parking will be extremely limited, so taxis, ride shares or public transportation is encouraged. Click here for a full calendar of events.
