Gettysburg Bike Week gears up with a return to the Allstar Events Complex
Gettysburg Bike Week is moving back to the Allstar Events Complex for 2015. In addition to celebrating its 14th year with three top-flight musical acts -- Jackyl, The Outlaws and David Allan Coe -- GBW will also have rides, shows and games for everyone.
The week goes from July 9 to 12.
The festivities will kick off on the S.S. Vape Stage at 2 p.m. July 9, as emcee Jack Schit takes the mic. The opening ceremonies will follow at 4:45 p.m., with Klinger McFry singing the National Anthem. Thursday night, outlaw country blues musician David Allan Coe is the headliner, with Klinger McFry, Marshall's Highway and Virago providing live music all day long.
Friday's events begin at 10 a.m., with a Stars of Hope Poker Run to benefit New Hope Ministries, that will end back at the Allstar Event complex by 4 p.m. At 2 p.m., the tattoo contest, sponsored by Tattoos by Nate, will start the afternoon out right, followed by a Bikini Bike Wash with the girls of the International Bikini Team at 3 p.m.
Friday night, rock 'n' roll gets the Southern Fried treatment as The Outlaws take to the S.S. Vape Stage. Warming them up will be Gettysburg's own Ghosts of War, Southern rockers Great Train Robbery, Southern rock tribute band Smokin' Gunnz and after-party music brought to you by Joyride. Following the Outlaws there will be a bonfire.
On Saturday, the rally starts at 10 a.m. with the second annual Cycle Source Ride In Bike Show, sponsored by Dale E. Anstine Attorneys followed by a Jennifer Levan Breast Cancer Poker Run to benefit the Pink Journey of Lights. The music starts with Shane Speal's Snake Oil Band, followed by another Bikini Bike Wash with the girls of the International Bikini Team at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon will feature bike games and burnouts, as well the Parade of Chrome and the Bikini Contest. Back In Black, the country's premier AC/DC tribute band, will warm up the stage for Jackyl on Saturday night, performing a mix of both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson songs (and also featuring the return of 8-year-old drummer prodigy Avery Molek). Then Jackyl brings its brand of musical mayhem to the stage. Saturday night will conclude with a Wet T-shirt Contest, a "Guys Contest" and fireworks.
