Here’s a run-down of what’s happening; the swap meet and vendor set up is on the 15th which is a Thursday. The real fun begins on Friday as we gather once again to have some fun. The show and shine areas are first come first served which means your choice of the front parking lot or the rear grassy area. The swap meet and vendors will be on the right side of the facility and easily accessible. Our DJ will be keeping us informed and entertained via the great music of the 50’s and early, 60’s. Games will start around noon and will be a blast for all those adventurous folks so inclined to take part in them.
Of course, tours of the Classic Car Museum are available to entrants to view the fantastic collection of vintage, muscle, hot rod, street rod and collectible vehicles. Food vendors and swap meet visits are open all day. Door prizes will be given all day so listen for your number!
The event then closes at 4 PM so that everyone can have dinner and prepare for a great Sock Hop at the museum from 6 PM until 9 PM! Soft drinks and homemade milkshakes will be available at a 50’s price! And do your best to recreate the golden days of rock and roll by entering the ‘Best Dressed ‘ 50’s contest!
Saturday begins at 8 AM as we once again converge on the grounds of the Classic Car Museum. A repeat of Friday’s activities will start our day as we get closer to the noon hour which brings more fun games to challenge everyone taking part. Our vendors and swappers will be on hand for that last ‘must have’ item. Around 2 o’clock we will host a brief members meeting to keep all of us up to speed about our organization.
Award ceremony will be held in the rear of the museum and will begin at 3 PM. That will allow plenty of relaxing prior to beginning the trip back home. I cannot wait to see all of you that attend the Rockin’ Robin Rod Run in beautiful old St Augustine, Florida!!
