Bikers Unite @ Lone Star Rally

Gas the bikes, make your hotel accommodations, and prepare for a weekend of fun. From November 4-7, 2021, Progressive presents Lone Star Rally. Not only does this popular festival draw in motorcycle and car lovers from all over the state, but the weekend is also filled with music, as artists take two stages Thursday- Sunday, located at Saengerfest Park downtown and at Beach Central Park in front of the Hotel Galvez. Some headliners include Bobby Friss, Zach Tate, Hairball, and Steele River Band. There's also a weekend-long Slingshot Showdown including an audio competition by Banger Audio, exhaust competition, show and shine competition, a slingshot ride, live DJ, a delicious group dinner, and more!

Kick Friday off with Old Time Motorcycle Rodeo Games from 1 pm - 4 pm. Make sure to get there a little early to register for the fun! At some point in that window, head to registration for the 3rd Annual Sound Off Competition that runs later that night, from 4 pm -8 pm. Live judges will award prizes for 2 Speakers Faring, 2 Speakers Non-Faring, 4 Speakers, and more!

Saturday starts with an early 8:30 am registration for the 16th Annual Outlaw Dave Ranch Ride, benefitting the Stevens & Pruett Ranch for Children & Animals. The meeting point for this ride is actually at Stubbs Harley-Davidson but will take you right to the festival. 

Enjoy the 2-day 9th Annual Drive-In Car Show, with a display of Pre 72 Hot Rods, classics, muscle cars, and more. Catch the announcement of Miss Lone Star Rally 2021 Saturday night, as she takes the crown in one of the largest bikini contests on the Gulf. 

Speaking of those accommodations, the Harbor House Hotel & Marina has harbor views you won’t forget. Call today to inquire about remaining accommodations!
