Do you Hear Any Rumbling Down I-45?
Posted In: Events & Attractions | Galveston News Posted by James Brockway on 11/02/2012

Proclaimed as the “Largest 4 Day Motorcycle Rally in North America”, the Lone Star Rally is rumbling down I-45 on its way to Galveston Island over the November 1-4 weekend.  Estimates in the past have ranged upwards of 250,000 people crowding the island for this four day event.

To add to the  Mardi Gras-like festival, other entertainment includes Bret Michaels live on stage Friday night.   The younger generation remembers Bret Michaels for his appearance on The Apprentice, but those of us that are a wee bit older remember him from the iconic hair band Poison.

Charlie Hunnam “Jax” of the hit TV show “Sons of Anarchy” will also make an appearance Friday night, in addition to his previously scheduled Saturday appearance, to sign autographs and hang out with fans.

For more information, follow this link http://www.lonestarrally.com/ or follow the tens of thousands of bikers rolling down I-45.
