8th annual exhibition to feature ‘Rods and Customs’
McKee Botanical Garden will host its Eighth Annual Motor Car Exhibition “Rods and Customs” on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. This event is for one day only. Don’t miss one of the most popular and highly anticipated events in Vero Beach! Forty spectacular pre-selected Mod Rods, Street Rods, Hot Rods and Retro Rods will be on display throughout the Garden.
This year, the show coincides with our Nature Connects®: Art With LEGO® Bricks Exhibition so visitors will be able to experience both exhibitions in a single day. Just as the owners of these uniquely distinctive cars have transformed ordinary automobiles into breathtaking “sculptures” with thousands of intricate components, the sculptures of Nature Connects include over 300,000 LEGO brick pieces and hundreds of hours of work.
Over 3,400 car enthusiasts came to last year’s show from throughout the Treasure Coast and beyond to view these stunning, artistic reinterpretations of automotive body shapes and designs.
Regular admission fees apply: $12 Adults, $11 Seniors, $8 Children ages 3 – 12, and free for McKee members and children under 3. Advance tickets are available at Garden Admissions during regular business hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, Sunday noon – 5:00 pm, and closed Monday.
Please follow the signs to overflow parking at the corner of 17th Street and Indian River Boulevard.
The event is sponsored by Einstein Bros. Bagels, Velde Ford and Treasure and Space Coast Radio (The Breeze 93.7 FM, 94.7 Hot County, and 97.1 Ocean FM).
