26th Annual Toys In The Sun Run

toys in the sun run 2013

Found in 1987, the South Florida President’s Council of Motorcycle Clubs & Organizations, along with the help of many local volunteers have gone “all out” to raise money and collect toys just in time for the holiday season to benefit both local families and the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida .

The main event starts on Sunday, December 8th, when hundreds of Motorcyclists line up as early as 7am in front of the Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale.  At 9:45am, they will be escorted by 250 police officers in cars and on motorcycles from the Tri-County area to Markham Park in Sunrise.

Some of the other events at Markham Park will be non-stop live music on two stages, featuring Bret Michaels on the Main Stage, a huge motorcycle show, over 100 vendors, an international food court, cold beer, and soft drinks. In addition, there will be an open car and truck show which has been dubbed South Florida’s “Most Unique Winter Car Show”. Sponsored by Cruisers of South Florida, all proceeds from this event also benefit the children’s hospital.

Local bands expected to play at this event include Soulicide, Riverdown, Slip & The Spinouts, RemaDee and many more.  A schedule will be posted at www.weekendbroward.com/live-music/ as soon as it becomes available.

Entry into the event is only $10 plus 1 new unwrapped toy or gift per person ($20 entry fee without a toy). VIP spots are also available for those who want to be at the front of the line.
