Can you hear it? The thunder of thousands of people descending upon Sarasota, some coming by car, most coming by bike, but all returning to the place where it all began. Thunder By The Bay is returning home with a new date, new venue, and renewed efforts to retain its status as a premiere motorcycle festival in the nation. They are celebrating a huge milestone this year, their 20th anniversary! The masses are coming and they are bringing their tourist dollars to infuse Sarasota and the surrounding area with an economic boost and will be providing crucial funding for Suncoast Charities for Children, for whom the event directly benefits. Thunder By The Bay is one of the largest festivals Sarasota has hosted in the past, and by all accounts, this year is going to be a record-breaker.
