Due to the quick change in the weather and the 100% chance of rain, we have decided to postpone the Rims On The River show to the weekend of May 16-18. We're sorry for this inconvenience, but we felt that this being our 10th Anniversary it was
important to do this right, and insure that everyone would have a enjoyable time. We will still honor everyone that has preregistered, and for those of you that haven't, you'll have a month now to get yours in. The concert is also being rescheduled and
Southern Culture On The Skids will be returning, as well as Skye Paige and The Globe Of Death Motorcycle Stunt Show! We're sorry for this inconvenience and hope that you will all make plans to join us May 16-18, 2014!
THE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR RIMS 2014 WILL BE UPDATED SOON .

The infamous Globe Of Death motorcycle stunt riders will be performing this year at the corner of Princess and N. Front Street. Come and watch these daredevils as they defy gravity riding sideways and upside down inside their metal globe. Performances will be at approximately 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30PM.
AND... starting at 3:00 in the parking lot located at Princess and N. Water St.,
we'll feature our annual FREE CONCERT!
This year we really wanted to put together something special so we convinced our local state favorites Southern Culture On The Skids to come down and play.
Another band that used to play the Wilmington area years ago, from Atlanta, The Woggles will grace the stage with their high energy brand of Rock & Roll.
Strutting some serious rockabilly will be The Straight 8's. This powerhouse threesome really bring us back to the good ole times!
Opening the show will be Wilmington's own Meteor IV. Think Link Wray and Dick Dale styles surf tunes.
Oh, did I forget to mention The Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow will be performing sets in between the aforementioned band sets. This is going to be a show to remember!
Once the concert is over, there's still more at all of the afterparty celebrations.
Check our Band Listing for a complete line up of all the fun!
Sunday 4/20 - Join us at 11:00AM for our Easter Run Cruise.
We'll be meeting at the Schwartz Center parking lot at 11:00AM and be going for a nice Easter Cruise that will last for about one hour. We'll be ending the cruise back in downtown, then people can head back to our venue sponsors for lunch or head on to your Easter destination.
Long Live The Car & Motorcycle Kulture!
