Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous served up a roaring good time
September 18, 2012 by Sarah
The 23rd annual Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous rolled into town on the weekend of September 14 in San Bernardino.
Kicking off on Friday at 10:00 am with a variety of entertainment, food, and the exciting roar of engines from dynamic cars of the 50s and 60s, the city’s signature event rolled out of town Sunday night.
The San Bernardino Stater Bro. Route 66 Rendezvous is the largest car show on the famous Route 66 and the event attracts approximately half a million car buffs from all parts of the country each year. With all of the extra visitors in the area, there is little doubt that businesses will have seized the opportunity to draw in extra business during the weekend. Local printing companies were probably kept busy during the months before this event, as businesses in the San Bernadino area were sure to take advantage of the tourist crowd brought in by the car show. No doubt local businesses advertised special promotions and deals at this time through a variety of printed media, such as flyer printing, poster printing, and banner printing.
The yearly event celebrates Route 66 with some of the coolest classic cars built before 1974, loads of revved up fun, and nonstop rock and roll. Entertainment this year included Wild Child, a well-known Doors tribute band. Also included in this year’s musical entertainment were Mad Max and the Wild Ones, Neil Morrow, Cold Duck, Ashley’s Midnight Riders, Johnny Come Lately, and the Restless Blues Band.
