For a great Father’s Day out why not come along to Beaulieu and join in the Sunday Drive-In at Beaulieu’s Custom & Hot Rod Festival. Hundreds of custom cars and bikes from all over the country attended last year’s Drive-In Day, held in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, and this year’s event, on 17th June, is set to be just as popular.
Hundreds of stunning Hot Rods and Customs, Classic Americans, Chops and Bobbers will be sunning themselves in the picturesque grounds of the Beaulieu attraction so, if you own a custom car or bike, bring it along and join the display. There will be prizes for the best custom vehicle in a number of categories including Best in Show and the People’s Choice Award.
During the day, rock to live music on the two stages with Carmen Ghia & the Hot Rods and Beach Boys Smile, plus strolling players, Mariachi El Mexicano. As well as free Dodgem rides, Wow Toys will have a range of toys for children to play with.
