Start revving your engines and hitching your trailers — it’s time to head to Myrtle Beach for the 29th Annual Run to the Sun Car Show, March 16-19. Held just blocks from Dayton House Resort at the old Myrtle Square Mall location, the show puts over 3,000 beautiful cars and trucks on display.
The classic car showcase is put on by the Pee Dee Street Rodders, a club created so members can enjoy the hobby of classic cars and trucks and socialize with others with similar interests. Not only do they focus on having fun with fellow classic car lovers, but they also contribute to the community while doing so. During the 2016 showcase, the club raised over $97,000 to donate to local charities including The Children’s Miracle Network and The National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Make sure you check out the Pee Dee Street Rodders website to get more information about registration and the schedule of events.
