Gears, Graffiti, and Grit: The Hales Hard Knock Hangout Returns

Gears, Graffiti, and Grit: The Hales Hard Knock Hangout Returns

Brace yourselves, Haleions, because the countdown to our third annual Hard Knock Hangout has begun!

On April 13th, the asphalt will tremble as custom cars, trucks, and bikes converge on Lewisville, Texas, for an unforgettable celebration of speed, style, and the unbreakable bonds of the Hales community.

Hales Annual Meetup

Far more than just another car meet, it's a gathering of the tribes, a reunion of kindred spirits who have known each other for years but rarely have the chance to meet in person—until now. The Hard Knock Hangout is where digital connections become real, old friends meet again, and the passion for all things Hales burns brighter than ever.

So clear your schedules, gas up your rides, and get ready to roll. Whether you're local or flying in from across the country, this is where you have to be on April 13th, from 2 PM to 8 PM.

Trust us, you won't want to miss a single moment of this epic event.

The Lineup: Graffiti, Pinstriping, and Live Music

This year, we're raising the bar even higher with a lineup of guest artists that will blow your minds. We've got Will "The Butcher" Card, a graffiti legend who will be tagging shirts with the Hales name and selling them on the spot. Imagine wearing a piece of art created right before your eyes, a testament to the raw energy and creativity of the Hard Knock Hangout.

But that's not all. We've also got Cory Angevine, a pinstripe maestro who will be working his magic on metal cutouts of longhorns and the state of Texas. Watch as he transforms these blank canvases into works of art, each stroke of his brush a tribute to the spirit of the Lone Star State.

And let's not forget about the soundtrack to this epic day. We've got none other than Justin Pickard and the Thunderbird Winos taking the stage at 6:30 PM. These are real musicians- they're alchemists, blending the best of rockabilly, country, punk, and rock'n'roll into a sound that's entirely their own. Get ready to dance, sing, and feel the music in your bones.

Fuel for the Body and Soul

Of course, you can't have a proper hangout without some serious grub, and we've got you covered. We'll have Texas BBQ that'll make your taste buds sing, tacos that'll transport you south of the border, and micheladas that'll quench your thirst like nothing else. This is fuel for the body and soul, the perfect accompaniment to a day of jaw-dropping cars, live music, and unforgettable memories.

Show Off Your Ride - All Customs Welcome!

Speaking of cars, let's talk about the real stars of the show. The Hard Knock Hangout welcomes all custom rides, from slammed to lifted, imports to exotics. If you've poured your heart and soul into your machine, we want to see it. This is your chance to show off your pride and joy, to swap stories with fellow gearheads, and to bask in the admiration of the Hales community.

Oh, and did we mention the special treats we have in store for you? We might just have an early release on an upcoming flannel, but you'll have to be there to find out. Because at the Hard Knock Hangout, anything can happen and usually does.
