The Sun City Cruiser’s 12th Annual Classic Car & Motorcycle Show will cruise, roar, and motor into Apple Valley this weekend.
Billed as the biggest and shiniest car show in the High Desert, the free show is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Mariposa Lodge near Apple Valley Road.
The event will feature nearly 250 registrants showing off their classic cars, “rot rods,” motorcycles, and a few other surprises.
Many vehicles will come from car clubs in the Las Vegas area and all over Southern California, including Orange County and the local mountain communities.
A DJ will play classic oldies while visitors check out vehicles, enjoy a variety of food, have a cold brew in the beer garden, and browse the many vendors and exhibit tables. The car show will also offer drawings, a raffle and prizes.
The $10 lunch deal will include a cheeseburger or bratwurst with chips and a beverage.
Traditionally, mayors from Apple Valley, Barstow, Hesperia, Victorville, and Adelanto have selected their favorite car and helped present the Mayor’s Choice Awards at the car show.
A Better Way/Victor Valley Domestic Violence
The Sun City Cruisers have raised money for local nonprofits each year by conducting various events, such as concerts, cookouts, and the annual car show.
This year’s proceeds will benefit A Better Way/Victor Valley Domestic Violence, a High Desert-based nonprofit that provides emergency shelter, transitional and permanent housing, in addition to resources and services for individuals and families dealing with domestic violence and issues of abuse.
To date, A Better Way has helped roughly 31,507 clients in the High Desert.
During last year’s fundraising activities, the Sun City Cruisers raised $34,000 for Rock’n Our Disabilities Foundation.
The Mariposa Lodge is at 19311 Jess Ranch Parkway in Apple Valley. The park-like setting is near Apple Valley Fire Protection District Station 337.
