Surfin’ State Street will feature a free classic car show, between Fifth and Seventh streets. Car owners are invited to bring their classic cars, muscle cars, cruisers, hot rods, Nomads and Woodies. Trophies will be awarded for the overall Top Five vehicles and one trophy will be awarded for the best theme. For more information about the car show, call (909) 969-8776.
