Route 66 Rendezvous

Each September you can get your kicks by attending the Route 66 Rendezvous in San Bernardino, California.
This event is huge, they close the entire downtown area to normal traffic.  If you enter the event with a cool car, you get a parking place and permission to cruise all you want. While your car is parked it becomes part of the show.

Commemorating the "Mother Road" which extended from Chicago to LA the cruising route runs along the historic highway for a few blocks and then circles the entire city center. It passes buildings and businesses that have been here since this was the main route through the area. In its heyday, before the time of freeways, this road represented the heart of America.

Here's a few photos from the event. There are more in a new gallery accessible from the home page.

All the blur effects are slow shutter speeds and panning, evening fun for the photographer.
