It’s time again to don the shorts and sunscreen, and don’t leave the love for classic cars at home.
Relics & Rods Car Club is hosting its 42nd Annual Run to the Sun Car Show Oct. 16-20, at the London Bridge Resorts Bridgewater Links.
The popularity of this event has made it one of the largest car shows of its kind in the entire Southwest United States. Regionally perfect weather makes Lake Havasu City a prime location for classic car owners across the country to meet and show off their hard work. If statistics from 2018 hold, Havasu could expect more than 700 vehicles, ranging from 1972 and older.
Registration and a kick-off dinner begins Wednesday, and Thursday Run to the Sun will be in full swing with Cruise Night on McCulloch Boulevard 2pm-9pm, providing a perfect photo opportunity for enthusiasts as well as eats and drinks at Havasu’s local restaurants and pubs.
Friday and Saturday, at Bridgewater Links Golf Course all the classic cars will be on display as well as vendors from across country from 8am-4pm. Friday there is also Dinner/Dance at the London Bridge Resort Convention center at 10am.
Sunday morning, a Run to the Sun parade will be held from Birch to Capri on McCulloch Blvd at 9:30am.
