One of the highlights of Endless Summer Cruisin were the boardwalk parades which took place Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. It was so nice to have the sun shining as the cars cruised down the historic OC boardwalk.
Friday night the LED and Neon Light Show took place on the Boardwalk at South First Street. Spectators walking the boardwalk could see the cars light up the night pus Trimpers Rides opened the Mirror Maze for all participants to enjoy free of charge.
Throughout the weekend there was live music by Golden Touch and Mook Jones plus Deejay Michael Jay spinning Golden Oldies and Seaside Jimmy playing good time rock n roll.
On Sunday the show wrapped up with the Grand Finale Awards. This year with rain on Sunday the awards were held inside at the Big Easy on 60th Street. Everyone was able to enjoy being dry during the awards plus many ordered delicious food and drinks. By the end of the event over 400 awards were presented and over $10,000 in cash and giveaways.
