2008 bean blossom biker fest - first time party for me|
Bob rates this rally a 9/10 beer cans
First time ever at the bean blossom biker fest, and about damn time I made it out there!
Very nice campgrounds, located at the Bill Monroe music park in Bean Blossom, Indiana. These campgrounds used to be part of the old Indiana ABATE bean blossom boogie which has since located to newer, larger facilities. Not to mention become a major national rally and industry in it's own right. Lucky for real bikers and wild party lovers throughout the eastern United States, the heart of the old boogie still lives on... at Bean Blossom.
What's in a good bike rally? Bands? You want bands? Forget your socks, this festival will rock your ASS off! Eclipse, Larry Crane, Destination Blues, Jasmine Cain and Firebox. And that ain't even all of them, just the main headliners! Pound for pound this rally packed more bands and quality music than the year-end inventory blowout sale at your local bargain store. Top notch bands, at bargain basement rates.
Contests? Hell ya. Saturday night wet t shirt contest and best painted woman contest. A pool tournament with a honest to God real pool table for first prize. Bike games? They've got'em! Motorcycle show, sure! First prize? A trip to Vegas! A burn out contest, jaw poppin' custom bike builders? Believe it! This rally was really well done and had it all.
Of course there were a LOT of people in the campgrounds, with the usual tailgate parties going on here and there throughout the entire camping area. As a matter of fact this entire rally had a ''good'' feel to it with friendly people, great bands, good contests and a hard to beat location. Plenty of private camping spots, plenty of shade everywhere. And of course vendors catering to your every need.
You don't often hear me foam at the mouth and rave about a party, but this one definately deserves it. Too bad it's only once a year. I am soooooooo putting this one on my ''to go to'' list for next season, and you should to.
