Craft Beers, Harleys, Live Music and BBQ Featured Saturday, September 4, 2010
ANGEL FIRE, New Mexico (August 19, 2010) – Angel Fire Resort announced it will host its second annual Bikes, Blues &Brews Party on Saturday, September 4, 2010 in front of the Lodge at Angel Fire. Popular microbrews and craft beers, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle showcase and great live music will be the main attractions in and around the big-top tent. On-site raffle proceeds will benefit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial/ David Westphall Foundation, on behalf of the Run-for-the-Wall motorcycle reunion.
“We rolled out Bikes, Blues & Brews last year as one more great reason to celebrate Labor Day Weekend in Angel Fire,” says Andy Whitacre, special events manager for Angel Fire Resort. “The party was a huge hit. This year we’re dialing it up with added microbreweries, sneak peeks at the new 2011 Harley Davidson Motorcycles presented by Santa Fe Harley, plus one of New Mexico’s best live bands, The Rudy Boy Experiment, not to mention the chance to win some great door prizes.”
The Saturday schedule of events is as follows:
3-7pm Angel Fire’s 2010 People’s Choice Beer Challenge & Top Beer Awards
