The event also featured street rides as well, including golf carts, motorcycles, and other coastal fashions.

“This is the 4th year we’ve participated, and this is a great show. PCB is making that come back from the storm. There has been a lot of great traffic and stuff here. Were really excited about it and very happy to be here,” said Peavler.
