27th Annual Belmont Shore Car Show
September 11, 2016
9am to 3pm
People from all over California come to Belmont Shore to enjoy the annual Belmont Shore Car show. Taking place on the usually busy Second Street (driven by an estimated 40,000 vehicles per day), attendees have the opportunity to intermix shopping and dining while viewing the gorgeous automobiles. Vendors are also set up along 2nd Street, and you can’t beat the weather of this beachside town with the warm sun and ocean breezes.
You can expect to find over 500 vehicles, some of the first automobiles ever made as well as classic roadsters, coupes, sedans, convertibles, muscle cars, sports cars, hot rods and low riders from the 1920’s through 1986. Many cars are one-of-a-kind, limited editions or customized.
The show is always the Sunday after Labor Day weekend, and this year it lands on 9/11.
Mayor Robert Garcia will give brief remarks along with fire, police and 3rd District Councilwoman Suzie Price at a remembrance service starting at 9:00am in front of Fire Station 8 (5365 E. 2nd St.), along with a moment of silence at 9:11am. Also on display will be a piece of the fallen NY tower, a very large American flag and an antique fire truck.
Over 40,000 people attend this event and sponsors present at the show include The Port of Long Beach, Performance Plus Tire & The Long Beach Airport.
The show is a Belmont Shore Business Association event along with The Bay City Rodders Seal Beach Car Club who provide the cars and vendors.
