Hot Rods and Customs Show

On the first day of activities, attendees will enjoy hot rods, customs and classic cars displayed over 8 acres of lawn, along with live classic rock and blues at the the outdoor amphitheater, and tasty food, including Heroes’ Deli ribs, special brews from Bootleggers Beer and wine from OC Custom Wine. Attendees can have their photo taken beside the famous Batmobile from the 1966 Batman series.

The second day of motorcar festivities starts with the Horseless Carriage Tour. Viewers can watch and cheer on from the curbside as classic cars cruise down Pomona Ave. from the Fullerton Museum (9:30am) to the Muckenthaler Cultural Center (10am). The Batmobile will be back, with Burt Ward, the original Robin from the 1966 series. There will be live music and food.
