Still nothing on the organizers website, entrance fee last year was 150 baht for ride in. Saturday kickoff usually starts at around 5pm.

Spoke to a member of the Vampire MC at the weekend who confirmed that it will be at Queens Park (19 Rai).

Not sure about the phrase "Bike Week" for 2 days. But I am sure it will be fun.

Anymore info on tonight's action? you state it is at 19 Rai but the calendar on Vampire web site says 48 Rai and no further info or program. Tried calling Aod but no answer.

The program for 2011 was as follows:
Friday is a soft start to the big party on Saturday, December 3, 2011. The party start official at 18:00 and the music stops at 24:00.

The program includes:

Motorcycle show
Tattoo competition
Live music
Good food for foreigners and Thais
The sale of motorcycle accessories and equipment from dozens of stores
Thousands of large motorcycles
Fundraising for flood victims in Bangkok and EMS equipment
Friends and lots of fun

If nothing else is available I guess we can follow last years program

The Vampire site is still showing last year's info - I'm pretty sure its at Queens Park, easiest thing to do is ride there, 48 Rai is not far away if it isn't there ... follow the hogs!

As you go North out of Hua Hin, turn right at the traffic lights after the palace. Then it'll just be a case of following the traffic.

I don't know anything about bike weeks, I'm a cyclist, but Queens park is at E5 on this map:

There is a small park going towards the beach and an area of land opposite where they have events and fairs.

We went along to have a look last night. Unfortunately, it wasn't really for us. My son is the one who persuaded us that we should go because he assumed with bikers involved, there would be some good heavy music - far from it while we were there.

Having said the above, it did seem to be a well organised event. The stalls were selling a different range of goods to that which we normally see on sale when we go to events at 19 Rai. This was good to look at, but well out of my price range - over 20,000 Baht for a waist coat as an example :shock: It was nice to see how the other half live :D

There were some fantastic bikes parked around the park to look at. There were even a few for sale at what seemed to be hideously low prices. Some were being sold for less than what my son's Scoopy cost.

They seemed to be doing what they were there for - a very good job of fund raising. There were a few Pudsy Bear moments with schoolkids presenting cheques to the fund. The auction seemed to be going great guns (sorry for the pun for anybody who was there) as well. I wonder if they will actually publicise how much the event raised - it was looking really good while we were there.

Even while we were there, a party atmosphere was building, with people dancing at their tables. It certainly had potential.

Unfortunately, the thing that I wanted to see, the tattoo competition, didn't take place while we were there.

If you are into bikes, and the strange genre of music that was being played, it must have been a fantastic night. Not for us though. I'm glad that we went to see what it was all about, but personally, I won't be rushing back to another one - a personal choice, and not to detract from a good event.

Well I had a ball, managed to get some wet weather gear, drool over some bikes and drool some more over the biker chicks. It was a lot better at this location, not the mud bath that would have been 48 rai. You really do need to be a rider to appreciate the event.

Photos to follow.
