Each year the city of Mason City celebrates its musical history with a Band Festival Parade. The "Music and Wheels" Car show is held each year in conjunction with this.

The show is put on by the River City Street Rods and typically draws a pretty large crowd of owners from around the region. Mostly 50's-70's cars and trucks are on display with a few import cars as well.

The show this year will be at the Principal Finacial parking area (just west of Southbridge Mall). We will have 2 classes of vehicles- Up to 1969 and 1970 to present. Awards will be given to the top 50 in each class.

Why "River City". Whats in a name?

Mason City, known for its outstanding musical heritage, was the birthplace of Mason City's "favorite son" Meredith Willson. His crowning achievement was the famous musical "The Music Man" . Many of the ideas in the show were taken from personal experiences during his childhood in Mason City. In that show he coined the name of the town as "River City, Iowa"
