About River City Street Rods Car Show
This show is done each year in conjunction with the Mason City Band Festival Parade (this year being the 69th annual).
The show is put on by the River City Street Rods group and typically draws a pretty good crowd of owners from around the region. Mostly 50's-70's cars and trucks on display but there will be the odd import as well. There are LOTS of different classes with awards for each.
Set on the grassy open area of Mason City's East Park (just east of downtown on E State Street) the venue is pretty nice along the edge of the Winnebago River. There is a parade and also a carnival for the kids.
Band Fest is a busy weekend here in Mason City so plan ahead if you are coming from a distance. If you are seeking hotels, look in Mason City or Clear Lake, IA.
I am not an official contact for this event but the River City Street Rods group appear to be really old school and have no official web site that I can find. I guess they prefer homing pidgeons and smoke signals for communication? At any rate, if anyone is coming and needs some logistics help feel free to drop me a line and I will do my best to lend you a hand.
