Welcome to the River City Street Rods, Inc.
Mason City, Iowa
From its creation in the late 1970's, The River City Street Rods has grown into one of the premier Classic Car Clubs of North Iowa.
Southbridge Mall Car show
Every spring, in Late March, the River City Street Rods are host to a car show at the local Southbridge Mall.
Held indoors , regardless of the weather outside, participants and spectators alike are able to enjoy the show in warmth and comfort. This show is the most requested event held at Southbridge Mall.
Music and Wheels Car show
Each year the city of Mason City celebrates its musical history with a Band Festival Parade. The "Music and Wheels Car show" 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. There are several different classes with awards for each.
The show is set on the grassy open area of Mason City's East Park (just east of downtown on East State Street) There is also a carnival for the kids.
The Band Festival is a busy weekend here in Mason City, so plan ahead if you are coming from a distance. If you are seeking hotels, look in Mason City or Clear Lake, IA. Click here for a list of area lodging.
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"
