For the past 31 years, Labor Day weekend at the OC Fair & Event Center revolves around one thing: cars. More than 1,500 pre-1978 hot rod, classic and muscle cars make their way to the fairgrounds for one of the largest and longest-running classic car shows in the nation. Where there was recently a plethora of carnival rides, fried foods, and games that take all your money, now lies an endless sea of classic autos and a 1.25-mile cruise route. With more than 100 vendors, live music and food, this three-day event is a family-friendly holiday celebration, featuring a kid’s fun zone includes a model car contest and wild wagons display. Return on Sunday to enter a drawing for a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle; the funds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps and empowers injured service members.
