Tuscumbia, AL. The 41st Annual Muscle Shoals Area Street Rod Festival will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2012, in Spring Park, Tuscumbia. Approximately 250 street rods will be on display in scenic Spring Park all day on Saturday beginning at 9:00 a.m. There will be a swap meet and vendors will be on hand during this event. The public is invited and there is no charge to attend the show. Vehicles 1972 and older will be in the show.
“This ‘car show’ is colorful and fun to see and we are pleased to have it come back each year,” said Susann Hamlin, Executive Director of the Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau. “Whether or not you personally own a street rod, individuals of all ages like to see the colorful old cars. I am always amazed at the meticulous work that has been done whether through restoration or customization. It is fun to look at the designs from the past.”
The Emerald River Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn), Sheffield, and Spring Park, Tuscumbia, have served as the host for this annual event for over 25 years. The men and women that make up the huge club known as the Muscle Shoals Area Street Rods have been credited with knowing how to entertain the group with something new each year.
