The 31st Annual SFPC Toys in the Sun Run, Presented by Rick Case Automotive Group, kicks off Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 8 AM at the Festival Marketplace in Pompano Beach, where motorcyclists will gather and follow a “parade route” all the way to Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida for a day filled with festivities including headliner concert by Bret Michaels. This event is open to the public and you don’t need to ride a motorcycle to attend. Gates open will be open from 8:30am to 10:30am to welcome the riders. After that, live music will begin on 2 stages, with hundreds of vendors including an international food court, a car, truck and bike show, and plenty of special attractions plus celebrity guests.
Admission is $20 + an unwrapped gift per person (or $30 without a toy). Take note that for anyone not coming into the park via the parade from Festival Marketplace, Markham Park will charge $1.50 per person at the main entry gate.
Bret Michaels is expected to take the stage sometime between 1 and 5pm. Two local opening bands are on the schedule including Soulicide and Silverspine. Other local bands making an appearance include The Railz tribute to Ozzy and Randy Rhoads on the North stage at Noon. Shaw Davis & The Black Ties will bring high energy blues to the big stage at 3:30pm.
This event benefits the James Jr Fund & Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is one of the area’s leading pediatric care hospitals, offering comprehensive health services and programs in an atmosphere that is child-friendly. An all-new facility opened in July 2011 in Broward County thanks to the support of events such as the SFPC Toys in the Sun Run, which since
adopting the hospital, has donated over $4 million to benefit the facility.
