The IJSBA 2020 Thai Airways World Finals are set to happen Oct. 5-11, featuring more than 750 of the world’s best personal watercraft racers from around the world.
Rounding out the October schedule is the 43rd Annual Relics and Rods Run to the Sun. The event is set to take place Oct. 21-25. Run to the Sun is one of the largest car shows in the Southwest and is one of the most popular events of the Fall Season.
Relics and Rods secretary Sheri Lawrence said the organization is still in the planning stages but spreading the event out on Bridgewater Links and the London Bridge Resort should help facilitate social distancing and ensure safety of the car enthusiasts who attend.
