SEPTEMBER JUNK RIDE Thursday, September 30th 7pm at 10th & Main Join us for our monthly community cruiser ride around town.
ZOMBIE RIDE to the ZOMBIE PROM
The JUNK RIDE dresses up as the ZOMBIE RIDE this Friday, October 1st. We will join in a combined celebration of community, art, and cultural events when the 2nd annual ZOMBIE PROM haunts the night!
Please note, the Zombie Prom will now be taking place at the Mesa Theater. A $10 donation at the door will not only help support our very own local community radio station during their Fall Fund Drive, but it also includes a night of death defying music spun by a vast array of talented djs, dancing, etc. for "a ghoulish night of music, mayhem, and fundraising." We will all be helpingKAFMto meet the station's fundraising goal during this night which puts a frightening flourish on the last hours of their week-long effort of working toward their goal which will help them continue to bring the music and cultural events that we so love to the Grand Valley. 100% of the donations at the door go to KAFM!NOTE: This is a 21+ event. For the ZOMBIE RIDE --- Bring lights and deck out your bikes to appear as though they may have just been excavated from the grave. Light up your bikes and your person. It will be dark out, so we want lots of light for safety as well as for illumination of our ghastly appearance. As usual, noise makers are highly encouraged.
