FARMINGTON – The City of Farmington’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs’ Four Corners Rod Run hopes to draw thousands of people to historic downtown Farmington again this year on Saturday, July 15. Main Street will be closed from Auburn to Commercial from 11am to 8 pm, so that attendees can roam up and down the rows of classic cars and hot rods with ease.

The event will also feature vendors and live music all day where the Kirk James Blues Band finishing out the evening with their headline performance.

This event is free to attend, and is the first featured event in the PRCA’s 60-year anniversary celebration. Starting July 2017, and continuing through June 2018, PRCA will be hosting a full year of fun, showcasing a different aspect of the department each month. People who would like to follow the year-long celebration can pick-up or print out “Our 60 Year Journey” stamp cards.

The stamp cards have a featured event or activity for each month. If people attend the event or complete the activity they will earn a stamp for that month. If participants get seven or more stamps they can turn the card in, in June 2018 to be entered to win outdoor recreation prize packages!

Organized by the Farmington Civic Center, the Four Corners Rod Run is just one of many large, free community events PRCA hosts throughout the year in Farmington’s historic downtown and the first place people can earn a stamp on “Our 60 Year Journey” stamp cards.

There are 21 classes car show participants can compete in at the event. If people would like to participate in the car show, they can register online at www.fmtn.org/RodRun, in-person at the Farmington Recreation Center, 1101 Fairgrounds Road, or the day of downtown in the parking lot at Allen and Arrington.

Registration is $35 for a single car or $65 for two cars by the same owner. For more information on this event visit www.fmtn.org/RodRun or (505) 599-1144
