Rod Run

This family event starts on Friday with cars registering at Hackett Park from 1:00 PM until 5:30 PM for the Rod Run to Halfmoon Bay. At the park, there will be a concession stand selling food and beverages. Prior to the Rod Run, there will be a free corn roast for the participants. This gives everyone a chance to meet and greet local car club members and out of town guests. The 30 km Rod Run cruise starts at 6:15 PM and is lead by our local RCMP with 450+ classic cars winding their way through 4000 spectators that line the highway from Sechelt to the Halfmoon Bay Fire Hall. Participants are always amazed at the warm welcome and enthusiasm by the cheering crowds that gather alongside the roadway. The spectators make signs, dress in costumes and place couches/ lawn chairs in their driveways. You also see a number of barbecues and house parties in full swing.

Show’n’Shine

The Show ‘n’ Shine starts Saturday morning on Cowrie Street in downtown Sechelt and parking for participants commences at 8:00 AM with the assistance of Coasters Car Club volunteers. The Show ´n Shine for the spectators starts from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and the trophy presentations begin at 3:00 PM. Many of the trophies are donated from Sunshine Coast businesses and individuals and are presented for various categories judged by knowledgeable car enthusiasts, except for the People´s Choice and Mayor´s Choice awards. If you missed registration on Friday night you can register at our central location in front of the Dock where our tents and booths are set-up. Coasters Car Club members will be there to answer any questions and assist you, wearing their bright green staff shirts. The traffic control assistants will only allow vehicles on the street that have pre registered and have headlight stickers displayed on their driver side headlight. All vehicles have to be parked on the street by 12:00 PM to participate in the Show ‘n’ Shine.
