This show is a non-profit fundraiser. All proceeds will benefit Morro Bay’s Neighborhood Watch and the The
Morro Bay Community Foundation.
Our show is open to current or restored emergency vehicles, modern or vintage, including police, fire, military,
tow truck, security, ambulance, and related public service organizations. Vehicle entries and display areas are
FREE for public agencies and only $25 for private vehicle owners. Entrants may register and display
multiple vehicles in the show. The vehicle display area will be on a closed off, downtown city-street, only
steps away from shopping, dining, hotels, and our beautiful waterfront area.
We thank the Morro Bay Peace Officers’ Association, Morro Bay Firefighters’ Association, the Menlo Park
Police Department, and many others who continue to make our non-profit event a reality.
On the Friday night prior to the show we will have a “Code 3” parade, escorted by Morro Bay Police, from the
waterfront parking lot at the corner of Beach St. and Front St. to Carla’s Country Kitchen of Morro Bay. Carla’s
is graciously hosting a hospitality night for our entrants, and the restaurant is located at 213 Beach St. Our
cruise will depart promptly from the Front St. parking lot at 6:00pm.
