Vista- Summer just got a whole lot hotter! Vista Rod Run returns this weekend for its 28th year on Sunday August 6, 2017 to Historic Main Street. The highly sought after tradition is hosted by Vista Village Business Association and runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Thirty trophies will be awarded at the close of the event.
All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Vista Teen Outreach, Hunger Hurts.
The infamous “Rumblefest” draws over 5,000 fans eager to check out hundreds of classic and custom hot rods, street rods, muscle cars and trucks. The hip and Historic Main Street rich in character and personality will showcase some of the finest and most unique vintage hand-built artistry from all over Southern California. Each year more and more car clubs and solo riders come out and experience one of the best shows for the entire family.
North County Ford will be returning as this year’s event Sponsor. The family-owned business will be partnering with TJ Crossman’s Auto Repair for a used car giveaway to a family in need. The nomination will be announced at the show. North County Ford and TJ Crossman’s Auto Repair are dedicated to giving back to the community.
Jeffrey Frankel, Director of Vista Village Business Association, expressed, “We are so pleased to have North County Ford returning as a major sponsor. Their support as our local car dealership is tremendous and we look forward to great things continuing into the future.”
Be sure to visit over 20 local vendors and the live entertainment. The ever popular “Millionaire Beach Bum’s” will be back on stage with their popular timeless hits that are rooted in tradition with a flair for the modern vibe. “High Energy DJ” will be mixing it up with rhythm and blues music from the 50’s and 60’s. There will also be a drawing for some great prizes, for example, massages, oil changes, moonlight tickets, and car parts.
