Daytona Beach 25th Anniversary Spring Daytona Turkey Run
The 25th Anniversary Spring Daytona Turkey Run Car Show will be held at the Daytona International Speedway from March 25 through March 27, 2016. This all-day family friendly event will offer everything from Hot Rods and Muscle Cars to antiques and exotics. Watch as they take laps around the beloved race track during the last weekend in March.
Put the pool, beach and all Daytona Beach activities aside to spend time admiring plenty of notable cars. Beside thousands of cars and vendors, there will be a large crafts area for the kiddos to enjoy. The Volusia Mall is across the street from the speedway, so if dad wants to spend more time at the Turkey Run, there is plenty to do for the rest of the family too.
Myrtle Beach “Back to Summer” Car and Truck Show
The annual “Back to Summer” Car and Truck Show hosted by the Myrtle Beach Car Club will offer a chance for car enthusiasts and their families visiting Myrtle Beach to cruise through a wide array of vehicular pieces of art. There were over 140 beauties at last year’s event, and given the South’s penchant for a good hot rod, there are sure to be just as many this year, if not more! The event takes place in early May at Broadway at the Beach.
Admission to the event is free. Those who want to show off their wheels will pay a small fee, which will benefit local charities. There will be an awards show, prizes and the chance to speak to local vendors as well, not to mention all the cars and trucks you could ask for.
