The motors and wheels will run for the “Run to the Sun” Thursday-Saturday in Myrtle Beach.
This 25th anniversary edition of the annual car show by the Florence-area-based Pee Dee Street Rodders will roll 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily at the former Myrtle Square mall site, on Kings Highway between 21st and 29th avenues North, in Myrtle Beach.
The family oriented event also raises money for charities, which totaled $98,000 last year, shared by the Children’s Miracle Network, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and local causes.
David Rodgers, the sales manager at Sparrow & Kennedy Tractor Co. in Scranton, 45 miles west of Conway, has helped coordinate the Run to the Sun since its inception. He said this show kicks off a season of shows that participants in the Run take in across the Southeast all the way to Daytona Beach, Fla., at Thanksgiving.
“So, it’s kind of year round,” said Rodgers, master of ceremonies for the Run to the Sun, also complimenting Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes, Burroughs and Chapin Company Inc., and Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce for support and space for the local festivities.
