Here Are The Details For This Year’s Henderson Hot Rod Days

First of all, if you own a classic, custom, or muscle, car, truck or motorcycle, you need to pre-register with the Boulder City Cruisin’ Association by clicking here. The cost is $35 dollars before September 30th, and $50 dollars thereafter.

Secondly, the hours for this year’s event are from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday. Then, Saturday, Henderson Hot Rod Days gets going from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The show will finish up with an awards presentation Saturday evening at 6 p.m. on East Army Street in Henderson.

Thirdly, you should know that they get a big crowd down on Water Street during Hot Rod Days. If you live in the area, organizers ask that you walk, bike, or scooter to the event. There is public parking, but it is limited. If you’re driving from outside the Water Street area, organizers urge you to carpool or rideshare if possible. Passengers may be dropped off at 58 South Water Street with access off Pacific Avenue.

Fourthly, this is a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring your kids. However, children 16 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Furthermore, it’s a good idea to take a photo of your child at the event. That way, if the little tyke gets lost in the big crowd, your child will be easier to identify.
