May Madness, the longest running car show and parade in Northern California will showcase hundreds of cool vehicles at the 27th annual event May 31! Spectators will get to view up close the finest Rods, Customs, Classics, Utility Vehicles & more. This year, the Ford Mustang will ride shotgun as the iconic car celebrates the 50th anniversary. Mustangs will be showcased on “A” Street north side of 4th.
Enjoy rocking bands and a street dance starting at noon with the winning band of the “Heads Up” Battle of the Bands followed by Fenix House Band and headlined by Reckless In Vegas a power trio comprised of Michael Shapiro on vocals & guitar, Mario Cipollina (formerly of Huey Lewis And The News), on bass & vocals, and Ryan “Dr Fu” Low on drums & vocals. Reckless In Vegas has blended the imagery, banter and classic music from the 1960’s Glory Days of Vegas with a contemporary rock band aesthetic. They’ve created an exciting show with modern versions of songs by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis, Sonny & Cher, Frankie Valli, Neil Diamond and more. Think The Rat Pack meets Green Day.
The car parade starts at 5pm. San Rafael’s Davidson Middle School Cougar Marching Band returns this year to cover the parade route and keep all the cars in time.
Attendees will enjoy great food and beverages and children’s activities. In conjunction with May Madness, the West End of 4th Street will host huge sidewalk sale sponsored by the San Rafael BID.
