The Great Labor Day Cruise was presented once again in Costa Mesa, CA on September 2-4. The weather was very comfortable, with nice cool evenings, making it perfect to enjoy this event the best way possible: staying there for three days in your tent, trailer, or motorhome. This is a camp-out like none other. Over a 175 motorhomes found a great spot to enjoy the view. You could watch a lot of cool hot cars cruise into the night. There were 1,100+ classic cars gathered. It was almost a non-stop parade!
Families and friends that may not have seen each other for a year or more, reunited for the long weekend and cruised around the Orange County Fairgrounds event route. Friday night they showed the movie Gone in 60 Seconds in the O.C.Promenade. Things to do during the day included checking out a nice selection of vintage trailers, a great model car contest, a wide array of vendor stalls and the big 50/50 drawing. On Sunday some tough choices were made as over 30 awards were presented to deserving cars.
This year the Great Labor Day Cruise supported the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station. They strive to be the leading force in assisting and supporting the military men and women who have so bravely served and sacrificed for our country.
