Retro Car Show This Weekend | @OrangEmpireRail

Retro car show makes for a great family day at Orange Empire Railway Museum!


Classic autos can be a hobby and an education for kids, young and old. For that reason (and many more) bring the entire family on Saturday, June 8 to the Orange Empire Railway Museum for the 14th Annual Rods & Rails Show, hosted by the City of Perris. The Perris Valley Historical and Museum Association puts on a Potato Festival which celebrates the region’s agricultural heritage

The free, all-day Inland Empire festival promises to be educational, entertaining and interactive for young enthusiasts. You’ll get the chance to get up close to collector classic cars, motorcycles and bikes. You’ll enjoy live rock bands featuring Christian and Latin music from the 70s and many food vendors.
