    All

    There will be plenty of fun at the 29th annual Fun in the sun toy run. All collections both cash and toys go to the local children. Addmission is a toy and $10.00. It's a great day of fun, family and friends.
    This year's guest musician is Charlie Daniels.
    Last year over 40,000 bikers attended. We hope to break 50K this year.

    Come join us if you can

    Holy Smolies! 40,000+?? Now that's a huge gathering. Our Toys for Tot's gets around 1000 and that is considered HUGE here! We also get 10.00 and a toy from everyone. Including a Police Escort, and a ride directly into the mountains that ends on a Indian Reservation (Native American) at a Casino. There we have a demonstration team (usually the Golden Knights (GWRRA) or the CA Highway Patrol (Blue Knights). Fun day. November 20th at Oceanside Harbor Parking lot 1, Oceanside CA, 92054

    I think the biggest reason for the large turnout is awareness; Weeks before the event every biker shop is handing out fliers and the local news channels advertise the event as well. The celebrity guest has also been improving over the years and this has drawn a lot of folks. Can't wait to see Charlie daniels this year. He should be a big reason for the large turnout.
