'BAYWATCH' STAR TO HIGHLIGHT CHARITY EVENT.
PALMDALE - Custom motorcycles, custom and classic cars, live music and an appearance by ``Baywatch'' star Traci Bingham will make McAdam Park the place to be Sunday for the Antelope Valley's largest charity event.
The 11th annual Thunder on the Lot, which raises money for 22 organizations that help local children, is moving to McAdam Park this year after starting out at a car dealership, then going to Desert Sands Park. The move is due to an increase in the number of vendors, events and spectators, organizers said.
A classic-car cruise event begins at 6 p.m. today with an auto procession and a classic-rock band at the park. Cars leave the park at 7 p.m., travel south on 30th Street East to Avenue S, west to 20th Street East, and north to Avenue R, then back to the park.
The main event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the park, 38115 30th St. E. Admission is free.
Over the last 10 years, the event has raised more than $1 million for Kids Charities of the Antelope Valley.
New attractions include a professional bike show, a kids' bicycle show, car show vendors, and more games and activities for youngsters.
Returning activities include a motorcycle ``poker run'' that starts at Harley-Davidson of Lancaster between 7 and 10 a.m. Sunday, a custom bike show, and classic and custom car shows organized by The Pastimers Car Club.
For youngsters there will be games, crafts, balloon bounces, a dunk tank, face painting, live karaoke music and rock climbing. Military personnel will provide physical challenges.
This year, two stages will host top bands from the Antelope Valley and elsewhere.
Cost to enter the motorcycle show is $25. The poker run cost is $25, which includes entry into the motorcycle show.
Cost to enter the car show is $30 on Sunday.
A raffle with tickets at $100 each will award a custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle and other prizes include a drum set, a spa and a Mexican cruise.
