Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the late 40s and early 50s. Here are some of the bands you'll see at the event: The Delta Bombers, Reverand Peyton's Big Damn Band, Guana Batz, Reckless Ones, Sean K. Preston and The Loaded Pistols, The Krank Daddies, and many more. Their will also be a car show, drag racing, and a burnout circus. There will be a flamethrower contest, a mini-bike parade, and more. Their is even a kid's event, Kids Powerwheels, so they don't miss out on the fun too.
You can also expect there to be a pinup contest. The winner will be crowned as Miss Rock and Rumble. If you plan on participating, plan on having up to three outfits. Per their website, "Patriotic is good for the opening ceremonies and National Anthem. Mechanic, Hot-Rodder or Themed for Friday. Glamour for the Mainstage Finals on Saturday. There will be many photo and social media opportunities with the crowd, cars and activities." To make things go as smoothly as possible, there will be a dressing room in the middle of the event venue. The winner and twelve other finalists will be recognized, judged on style, presence, creativity, and personality.
