It's one of the biggest car shows in the entire SIt’s almost time for one of the Southwest’s biggest car shows…the Lake Havasu Run to the Sun. The Relics & Rods Car Club will be holding its 35th Annual Run to the Sun event from Wednesday, October 17th to Sunday, October 21st, 2012 at Lake Havasu’s Nautical Beachfront Resort. To prove that 40 is fabulous, the 800 cars on display during the Run to the Sun will be no younger than the 1972 vintage, with most older than that.
On Wednesday, registration for participants begins at 9am, with a catered kick-off party in the evening for all Run to the Sun early arrivals. Thursday, however, is when things really begin. A Poker Run keeps entrants busy in the morning, a pre-cruise party will be set up at Premier Street Rods (1100 Lake Havasu Ave N) and the evening will end with a huge cruise of classic cars to The Shops at Lake Havasu (5601 Arizona 95) from 5pm to 9pm. Everyone is welcome to come to The Shops Thursday night to check out the cars, chow down on burgers, brats and beer (for the 21+ crowd) and listen to live music. Admission to the Thursday cruise is absolutely free!
The Nautical Beachfront Resort Golf Course will host the Show & Shine from 8am to 4pm on Friday and Saturday. Find those used parts you need for your car at the Swap Meet. Check out the automobiles for sale at the Car Corral and shop other vendors on-site. Tickets are $7 for each day or $10 for a 2-day wristband pass. Awards will be handed out for show winners on Saturday afternoon.
The five day Lake Havasu Run to the Sun event will wind down with a parade of the more than 800 entrants on Sunday morning followed by a pancake breakfast. The Relics & Rods Run to the Sun is catnip for any classic car lover. It’s also good, clean fun for the entire family to enjoy. Don’t miss your opportunity to take it all in this year!
