A year ago I complained about one of my favorite annual Bradenton events, Heatstroke Hot Rod Hoedown, relocating to Sarasota after a killer seven-year run in the same awesomely laid-back location.
Props to Paxton 'P-Man' Richards for bringing the event back to his P-Man's Classic Cycle Paint shop in the warehouse district of west downtown Bradenton.
He just told me the street will be blocked off — yes, he finally received permission from the city, more on that later — and that the event is ready to go with a little help from WSLR 96.5.
All the other info available so far is on the poster.
See ya there May 19!
