The Wheels of Time Street Rod Association announces its 35th Annual Rod & Custom Jamboree at Macungie Memorial Park on August 23rd, 24th, and 25th.

Proceeds benefit more than two dozen charitable organizations and scholarship programs. Special features include the following for all 3 days;
Haunt Rods will have on display 3 cars from the show "the Munsters" the family coach, the coffin car, and gokart
Butch Patrick, "Eddie Munster" will be at the show to sign autographs
The Wheels of Time Rod & Custom Jamboree includes over 1,500
street rods and custom cars, 1982 or older. Each vehicle is an
individual creation representing American innovation and
creativity and is a unique expression of performance and style by
its owner. Coveted Wheels of Time awards are given each year to
30 participant's cars at the show. National Street Rod
Association Vehicle Safety Inspections are also conducted free of charge during the show.
The street rod and custom car hobby is a unique part of American culture and draws millions of participants and spectators to events all across the country. The Wheels of Time Rod & Custom Jamboree is one of the largest all-volunteer events in the nation and each year approximately 15,000 spectators and participants attend the show. Over the past 20 years an average of $60,000 is given each year to local charities and the Wheels of Time scholarship program for young adults. To date, over $1,200,000 has been donated to local community organizations, over 300 scholarships have been awarded, and hundreds of pints of blood have been given to the Miller-Keystone Blood Center. Wheels of Time members have also provided countless hours of community support with cars for parades and events, volunteer hours, and support for those in need.
Other highlights include Valve Cover Racing, our famous Teeter Totter, Bingo, Auction, Women's World, and entertainment for the kids. The huge flea market and women's crafts area has 300 vendors, plus a car corral with dozens of cars for sale. The beautiful Macungie Park offers many good food vendors, swimming pool, and playground for the kids. Several new activities for this year include; a wing eating contest, a hot dog eating contest, and the first Annual Miss Rod & Custom Pin Up contest. See website for rules and times. Several nostalgic race cars will be on display.
The annual Friday night cruise thru Emmaus will again go on for the first 200 cars that sign up on Friday at the show. This has been a long time favorite of the area but burnouts have jeopardized the future of the event. Therefore, no burnouts are allowed and will be enforced.
This year, live bands will play at the Wheels of Time Rod & Custom Jamboree each night. Friday's entertainment for the evening from 7:30 pm to 10:15 pm will be The Large Flower Heads. The Allentown Hobo Marching band will entertain the crowd on Saturday afternoon. Saturday evening band and dance entertainment from 7:30pm to 10:15 pm will be by "Flamin' Dick and the Hot Rods."
Many other activities are going on thoughout the weekend through the efforts of the Ladies Auxiliary. On Friday, they have planned a cake-walk, bingo, and gift basket raffle. On Saturday and Sunday, is a basket auction, bingo, crafts and guessing games. A special 35th anniversary quilt, which was hand made by the ladies, will be raffled off during the show. Saturday has an auction of merchandise to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Association at 10:30 AM. This popular event always brings unique items and all proceeds go to MDA.
The show opens each day at 7:00 AM. Spectator gate admission is $8 (under 16 free). Bring non-perishable food items and get $2 off the admission price. Food is donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank, with tons of food donated over the years.
