The 26th Annual Vista Rod Run will take place on Aug. 2 in historic downtown Vista. The event will feature 350 classic, hot rod, and specialty vehicles along with their owners, as well as music entertainment, slot car racing, food trucks, an awards ceremony, and a raffle to benefit the Vista Teen Outreach. According to the Vista Village Business Association, the Vista Rod Run is more than a car show. It is “a pride of ownership, bragging rights, and friendly competition among serious collectors. Owners prepare for this day long in advance, some driving from other states just to hang out with those who share the same passion for classic and hot rod cars detailed to perfection.” Long enjoyed as a tradition in the heart of Vista, the event continues to attract car clubs, families, and local residents for a day of community fun year after year.
