Warm Weather & Hot Cars Gather at Aberdeen

By Mike Myers & Dan Dugas

It was extra warm in downtown Aberdeen, Washington on Saturday, July 14, 2018 for the 7th edition of Rod Fest. The highly popular and successful rod run might have been unpleasant except for the cooling effect of ocean breezes. The Midnight Cruizers hosted the event from 9 am to 3 pm.

The Midnight Cruizers have been putting on Rod Runs for seven years in downtown Aberdeen for the whole family's enjoyment. 147 cars registered for the rod run. This year's event drew entries from Oregon, Florida and a multitude of entrees from eastern and western Washington.

Along with music, food vendors, restaurants and shops showing their wares, the intersection of Market and Broadway was a lively canvas for a unique art form
classic cars, modified cars, and custom street rods. Car art on wheels featured the finished work of mechanics, body and fender experts, hot rodders, pinstripers and painters.

There was something for everybody who appreciates curved metal fenders, customized car bodies, gleaming chrome, sporty tires and wheels, and wild paint jobs polished to a high gloss. In addition, there was a Poker Walk, 50/50 raffle for Meals on Wheels, event t-shirts, dash plaques for the first 150 entrees, more than 40 awards, door prizes, goodie bags and a free hotdog on the preceding Friday night (4-6 pm on the 13th) at Point S Earley Tire in Aberdeen. See you in Aberdeen!
