Today is the first official day of Autumn. Football season is in full swing, new seasons for our favorite shows are premiering, and the holiday seasons are just around the corner. Fall Festivals are already starting, so check out our updated Long Beach weekly calendar of events!
Long Beach Motorama Kustom Car Show & Cruise:
Long Beach Motorama is a modern indoor and outdoor Car Show & Cruise steeped in tradition! The first car show to be back in the Long Beach Arena in 32 yrs. Long Beach Motorama pays tribute to the Renegades Car Club formed in 1941 in Long Beach. In early 1950 through 1957 the club was producing Kustom car shows on high school football fields. This new craze grew into the show being held in Long Beach Municipal Auditorium from 1958-1960. This was the “Premiere” Kustoms show on the West Coast back then, with the National Roadster Show (Oakland) being the equivalent for hot rods to the North.
