Downtown Hayward goes retro for car show
Travel back in time and admire vintage cars on display at the first annual ÒVintage Alley Car ShowÓ on Saturday, September 6 in Downtown Hayward. About 270 rat rods, hot rods, motorcycles and lowriders will be parked along B Street from Foothill Boulevard to City Hall plaza, giving downtown a retro look and feel. Adding to the vintage vibe, attendees are encouraged to dress in their favorite Ô40s or Ô50s outfit. This free event will also feature live music, vendors, food booths, pin-up models, face painting, a balloon artist, and raffle prizes from sponsors, including a full paint job to one of the car entries.
With the help of Joe Estrada, Utility Leader for the City of Hayward and Advertising Director for Classic & Kustom Bombs Magazine, Vintage Alley owners Alfredo Rodriguez and his wife Alicia made this car show possible as Òa good way to have something great for our community,Ó said Rodriguez. Beneficiaries from the event include Hayward Animal Shelter, Friends of the Hayward Library, and Drivers for Survivors, a program which offers free transportation assistance to cancer patients.
The RodriguezÕs passion for the Ô30s, Ô40s, and Ô50s era materialized into Vintage Alley Salon & Inspired Vintage Boutique on B Street, where youÕll find retro brands such as Heart of Haute and Steady Clothing and leave the store looking stylish!
The event is sponsored by King Kovers, Downtown Muffler Service, Golden Oaks Printing, Hayward Maaco, FRA Financial Group, Chabot College, LesterÕs Tire & Automotive, Tri-City Engravers, Ace Hardware, Eden Jewelry & Loan, Classic & Kustom Bombs Magazine, the City of Hayward, and more. Call (510) 537 - 6105 and ask for Alfredo or Alicia for more information.
