The Labor Day weekend Biker Bash event will return to Granbury this year, under new leadership.
It was not held last year because organizer David Kimbro of the Warriors for Christ ministry in Thorp Spring said his helpers were unable to devote the time necessary to put on such a major event.
Kimbro had spearheaded the Biker Bash for four years, drawing thousands of motorcyclists to town.
The new leader is Doc Dennis, founder and pastor of Full Armor Biker Church and Full Armor Fellowship in the Decatur area.
This week, the Granbury City Council approved the closure of one block of Bridge Street and one block of Crockett Street around the courthouse for the event. The closures will be from 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, through 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 1.
“I’m trying to get all the t’s crossed and all the i’s dotted,” Dennis said Tuesday.
Twenty-three bands and several speakers have been lined up, he said. The event will be centered around the square and nearby Hewlett Park.
Everyone is welcome – not just bikers, the pastor stated.
There will be vendor booths, games, a Sunday morning church service in the park and a Sunday night showing in the park of the film “God’s Not Dead.”
Dennis said there will be many things to keep kids entertained, such as a bounce house and, hopefully, a rock climbing wall and petting zoo.
Festivities will kick off at 9 a.m. the Saturday of Labor Day weekend and will end at 1:45 p.m. on Monday (Labor Day).
