Thousands of vintage automobiles, highlighted by 50th anniversary celebrations for the Ford Mustang and Pontiac GTO, will be instrumental in the global gathering of the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion, scheduled Sept. 19-21 in Ontario, California.
Plenty of vendors and three days of food, live music and additional entertainment are scheduled in addition to the more than 2,000 classic cars.
Beyond the world’s largest nighttime neon light cruise featuring a dazzling “moving light show on wheels” for which some participants have spent years producing specially lit vehicles, other highlights of this year’s event include:
Show-n-Shines; 50th Anniversary Celebrations of the Mustang and GTO; Poker Run traveling along historic Route 66; Model Car Contests; Von Hot Rod’s Shindig including pin-striping Circus and Nostalgia Rod & Kustom Display.
The event is free for spectators.
“Southern California thrived because of its rich love affair with the automobile,” said Michael Krouse, President and CEO of the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau, which produces the event. “This is a chance for folks from everywhere in the world to gather and enjoy the nearly mystical passion that is shared by so many and embodied in Route 66, California and of course amazing cars.”
Online pre-registration at $60 ends August 31. Onsite registration at $80 is available September 19-21.
