FEEL THE ‘POWER’ - STAY FOR ‘TOWER’
Palace Hosts 2nd Annual Motorcycle Ride Fundraiser
UPDATED March 19
Waterbury – The Palace Theater is revving-up its East Main Street window in honor of the performing art center’s second annual Motorcycle Ride, which is scheduled to take place, Saturday, April 27, at 11a.m.
To help promote the event, Mike D’Occhio of Doc’s Motorcycle lent his custom-built, ‘60s style old school Bobber to the theater for display in the Box Office lobby. Doc’s Motorcycle is a sponsor of the event for the second year in a row.
The Palace’s Second Annual Motorcycle Ride is a 47-mile, police escorted drive through the Litchfield Hills that ends with a street fair on East Main Street. The street fair will feature a variety of vendors, food and entertainment, including a guest appearance by Chaz from WPLR's “Chaz and AJ in the Morning,” and a performance by local Eagles tribute band, E-2.
Registration for the motorcycle ride is $25 per rider and $15 per passenger, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the theater’s Ticket and Travel Fund, a program that provides underprivileged children with access to live theater. For more information, visit www.palacetheaterct.org or call the Box Office at 203-346-2000.
