Parade kicks off three days of classic cars, food and fun

By Kimmy Reinhardt

Excitement grew as the Rocky Mountain Street Rod Nationals parade reached the Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo. Cheers could be heard when the first 100 cars

pulled into the grounds bright and early Friday morning, and were welcomed by spectators and car collectors alike. 

Families traveled from all around Colorado and surrounding areas, including right here in Pueblo, but also from Wyoming and New Mexico. Colorado State University Pueblo even had a member of its staff, Grounds Keeper II Mike Riggio, with his 1940 Ford truck on display. 

The Rocky Mountain Street Rod National Car Show has become an event passed down through generations. There were families who attended the first event 37 years ago, and those spending their first year at the show. Walking through the fairgrounds, families were gathered, enjoying their time together. Parents and grandparents were showing younger generations the joy and history of this car show and telling them stories of the times they spent at the event over the years. 

Attendees enjoyed not only rows of classic cars but vendors ranging from Rocky Mountain Street Rod National merchandise to local favorite food trucks including Passkey and Toler Brothers. 

The car show runs June 24 through 26 at the Colorado State Fairgrounds; hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Discounts are available for military personnel, NSRA members, or spectators 60 years of age or older.
