• Gateway Center Presents 3rd Annual Rock & Rod Car Show

    by Cameron Douglas

    Gateway Center will present the third annual “Rock & Rod Festival” at the Monterey County Fairgrounds May 29-31. This celebration of 50s & 60s rock and roll and custom and classic cars benefits the developmentally disabled adults of Monterey County. There will be lots of great food. Entertainment will run the entire weekend with music from Los High Tops, Jeremy “Elvis” Pearce, The Yard Dogs and the Chicano All Stars. Show goers can also look forward to a special appearance by Flo and Eddy of The Turtles, plus Ron Dante of The Archies.One hundred-forty-seven gorgeous cars showed last year (you can view them on the website’s registration page.) This year there is room for 200 cars. The show is the brainchild of event organizer and car guy Terry Wecker, who also serves on the Gateway board of directors. “Gateway Center is a family affair,” Terry says. “I do nine shows a year, and this one is the closest to my heart. It’s a great location, parked on the grass underneath the beautiful oak trees. We’ve got trailer parking, RV parking and we’ll have all the food vendors out there.”

    And here’s more good news: admission will be considerably less this year at 20 dollars. There will be lots going on, and over 100 volunteers will be on hand. However, Terry always welcomes more volunteers. To help out, contact Terry Wecker at (831) 649-0102. For information, schedule and registration, log on to www.montereyrockrod.com
