As part of Fair After Dark, the vintage Garage Stage will come alive with the “Sounds of the Roads” showcasing music from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s as well as the finest street rods from car clubs throughout southern California cruising the Fair in the Community Day Parades. When the parade is over they will continue their cruise down Thunder Alley where they will be on display until the Fair closes that night. Street rods, vintage 1970 and older, will grace the Alley each Monday through Friday evening.
Thunder Alley, located between Fairplex 4 and the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, will also feature Car Club Party Nights each Monday through Friday with food, music and more.
