The hot rods are coming to Queenscliff for a weekend of great entertainment and unique cars.

The Geelong Street Rodders’ Queenscliff Rod Run will see cars cruise through Hesse Street on Saturday, February 3, from 5pm to 10pm, and concludes on February 4 with a Show’ N’ Shine at Princess Park from 9am to 3pm.

President Greg Morrissey said the public could expect a big display of hot rods during the club’s popular event, with close to 1600 people expected to attend across the two days.

“It’s a good thing for everyone to come and catch up with everybody that you might not have seen for a while,” he said.

“We’ve got about 650 entrants for the bulk of the weekend, and that’s made up of family, couple and single entries.

“It’s just a great weekend and our club, the Geelong Street Rodders, go to a lot of other events around Victoria.”

Mr Morrissey said the event would also feature trade stands, food vendors and live music, with Sunday being a big day for the public.

He said everyone was encouraged to come and look at the cars on display during the event’s Show ‘N’ Shine for a $5 entrance fee.

The Queenscliff Rod Run has grown into one of the premier events on the state’s rodding calendar, and Hesse Street will have limited vehicle access during the Saturday cruise.
