OAKHURST – Members of the Sierra Oakhurst Kiwanis Club welcome one and all to rev their engines, as it’s time for the 12th annual Run for the Gold classic car show at the Community Center.
The action starts with a kick-off party on Friday, Sept. 5, followed by a full day of automobile admiration and family fun, plus food and vendors, on Saturday, Sept. 6.
The cost for registration of vehicles is $35 and there is no charge for the public to enter and check out the rides.
All the excitement takes place at the Oakhurst Community Center, starting at 6 p.m. on Friday night, Sept. 5, when pre-registration of cars is open and a “cruise-in,” is happening. Participants can enjoy delicious BBQ dinner for $12 per person. That includes the sounds of a DJ playing classic oldies, a raffle, and a preview of someof the exceptional cars in the moto mix.
On Saturday, Sept. 6, the day starts off at the Community Center with more registration and a yummy Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast from 7 a.m.- 10 a.m. Breakfast is $6 for adults and $3 for kid, and the same for lunch which runs from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Before, during and after that, it’s all about the cars, including crafts and other vendors, more great music, more raffles, food and good times.
Awards will be given out for Best Roadster, People’s Choice and Best of Show, along with first place plaques for each class and special award for Best Mopar. Click here for online registration. Vendors contact: Harvey Left (559) 642-4507
