Thunder Thursday April 14 is part of the Long Beach Grand Pix week long celebration. This year’s thunder Thursday is once again sponsored by Long Beach’s favorite beer from south of the border, Tacate. Of course there will be cars on display, but wait there’s a whole lot more. What would a party be without music? Tacate harnessed their partying experience to line up some musical talent to entertain the car loving folks of Long Beach.

Keeping with the LB Grand Prix theme there will be a pit stop contest. If you ever wanted to know what it’s like working as part of the pit crew, now you can find out. I wonder if the music will add atmosphere to the pit stop contest. With music or no music I think this will be interesting part of the festivities. Maybe not as entertaining as wild cow milking at the old Brawley Cattle Call, but it should be a good show. And I bet the cars have a lot more horse power than a wild cow.

Next on the agenda are several extremely popular past times of the American male, all rolled into one. With these three elements one could make a pretty good country song, cold beer, fast cars, and beautiful women. Yes, it’s the “Tacate Miss Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pageant.” That’s a long name and along with the beer, cars, and women you get a great town thrown in for free.

Enjoy the grand Pix experience.
