Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Boomerang takes you to back in time!

Enter the 25 acre English Tudor Village in Crownsville, MD and experience the second largest Renaissance Festival in the country!

The festival is a quickly growing Boomerang tradition, and riders are in for a day of chivalry, bawdiness, and good fun. Dance, drink, and be merry as you witness jousting, artisans, street performers, and traditional foods and spirits as you go back to Medieval times

Guests can join in the fun further with costume rental options. Dress the part and become royalty for the day!

The festival is about an hour away and riders will enjoy premiere transportation as one of our lovely hosts takes you back in time and gets the party started with drinks and dancing on the ride to the festival. Feel free to bring your most appropriate Medieval cocktails to enjoy as we make our way to the Village.

What better and unique way to spend a Saturday or Sunday this fall?! Our day will begin with a pre-party at Caribbean Breeze in Arlington around 11 and we will spend about 5 hours at the festival during the day to ensure you have the full Renaissance experience! 

Reserve your tickets now, as this event is one of our most popular and only being featured for only two days!

Let us take you to college game day!

Hey riders, if the fall season means fight songs, tailgates, and football, then our exclusive out-of-town game day expedition is for you!

Why settle for just watching the game on TV when we can take you right to the middle of the action? We have teamed up with a luxury bus line to provide comfortable transportation for the 4 hour journey to Virginia Tech and Penn State, complete with bathrooms and our standard BYOB policy to start the tailgate on the road! 
Bathrooms are a definite necessity for our pre-game party ride!
The busses will pick up riders in Arlington and arrange to arrive at the stadium 4 hours pre-kickoff to ensure everyone has plenty of time to tailgate and enjoy the full college game day experience! A meeting point and time will be set to pick up riders and return to Arlington after the game ends. This is sure to be an all day affair unlike any other!

Riders will have safe, comfortable, sober transportation, and a true college football Saturday, along with a reliable ride home at the end of the day! There's no need to worry about the packed hotel rooms and ridiculous lodging fees, which we think is a pretty sweet deal! 

Whether you're an alum, die hard fan, or just looking for a Saturday sports-filled adventure in a college town, this is a trip series you won't want to miss out on!

Would you like to get a group together to attend another college game that we aren't currently featuring? No problem! Email us at info@ridetheboomerang.com to learn more about our private party bus rentals. 

So book your tickets, break out your face paint and team colors, pack a cooler, and get ready for a whole new level of college football season!
Now that's team spirit!

Boomerang Concert Tour Strikes Again! -Virgin Fest

It's definitely concert season in the District! Boomerang has been hit with the largest demand to date for Virgin Fest on September 10th! 
Never fear faithful riders- if you want more, we'll give you more! We called in a fleet of premiere luxury coaches to support the unbelievable number of concert-goers who wanted to travel in true Boomerang style

To accomodate all of our riders in the area we will be starting from TWO locations! Half of our busses will be picking up at Front Page in Dupont Circle, and the other half at Caribbean Breeze in Ballston. 

Virgin Fest will be held at Merriweather Post Pavilion and is a free all day concert, spanning from 11 in the morning to 10 at night! It isn't hard to see how this infamous yearly festival sold out so quickly and that attendees saw the Boomerang as the obvious choice for a fun, festive, and safe form of transportation to and from the event!
The incredible line-up this year includes The Black Keys, Cee Lo Green, Deadmau5, Tv on the Green, and many more! These artists have come together to perform for free in support of The Re-Generation Project, reaching out to youth homelessness. 
We are so pleased that our Boomerang riders have shown such excitement and record-breaking demand for this perfect Saturday filled with live music, bus dance parties, and a truly charitable cause. Riders, we hope you're ready for the craziest concert tour to date!

Wastin away again with the Boomerang!

Parrot Heads...it's that time again! The king of all concert tours hits this weekend with our habitually SOLD OUT Jimmy Buffett Boomerang tailgate and ride! 

Buffett fans were definitely bummed with the news that the tailgating was banned from the Jiffy Lube parking lot! Luckily, a few silly rules can't stop The Boomerang from keeping the party alive! In true Buffett form we arranged for an all-afternoon tailgate party at Caribbean Breeze in Ballston. Hey Jimmy, if the authorities at Jiffy Lube are giving you a hard time you're welcome to come party with us!

Our riders will enjoy a tiki tailgate featuring drink specials, non-stop Buffett playlists, $5 appetizers, corn hole, and so much more, to get the party started from 2-5 PM on Saturday! Then we'll be Bristow-bound, keeping the tropical party alive the whole way down I-66 to the concert! Our goal is to eliminate all worries in regards to driving, parking, and pre-partying, and therefore allow you to enjoy the concert in true Buffett fashion!
Although Jimmy Buffet holds a special place in our heart, we don't concert discriminate here on The Boomerang! We will be covering all the hottest concerts in the VA/DC/MD area so be sure to check our concert tour dates! If it doesn't look like we're hosting a concert that you'd like to see contact us at info@ridetheboomerang.com. 
Rock on Boomerang riders and we'll see you Saturday! Don't forget your floral prints and parrot gear!

Rolling through wine country with The Boomerang!

Enjoy swirl, sip, and enjoying unique Virginia reds and whites on a Saturday afternoon! Fall season is here and so are our wine tours! We can't think of a better way to spend your day. The morning starts at Caribbean Breeze in Ballston with mimosa specials as our excited riders gather to start the day. 

Then it's off to wine country! Last week we hit 8 Chains North and Loudon Valley Vineyard in the Leesburg area. We had three beautiful birthday girls on the bus, and everyone had an awesome attitude and great time! 

Speaking of birthdays, 8 Chains North Vineyard was celebrating it's 1 year anniversary and the Boomerang Bus riders were able to join in on the festivities!

Boomerang riders enjoy transportation to several of Virginia's most highly acclaimed vineyards, a complete tasting of each vineyard's unique varietal selection, and even a complimentary wine glass from each stop to remember the day!
Where the magic happens in the barrel room!

Riders were able to enjoy their wine and lunch out on the deck overlooking wine country!

This Saturday was only the beginning of our delicious, scenic, and fun wine tour season on The Boomerang! Check our calendar for wine tour dates and to buy your tickets! Where else can you vineyard hop with friends, make new ones, and ride in style while celebrating along the way?!
