Im sure you have all heard about and participated in the legendary Run To The Sun event which has been going since 1987! One of the largest VW, custom car and music events of its kind attracting upto 40,000 people.
The cruise starts at Heston services on the M4 and with at least 1000 cars joining along the way a line of traffic over 8 km long will be making its way to Newquay!

For those of you that like to spend the weekend partying at Trevelgue Holiday Park, the home of Run To The Sun theres a great line-up prepared consisting of a Pendulum DJ set and MC Jakes in the main arena which holds upto 6000 people and Rudi's Message, a five piece Ska band in arena 2. New for 2009 Arena 3 will be holding a silent disco which sounds very strange but is apparently the latest rage! Try to imagine 2 DJ's, wireless headphones (free) and a number of different style music channels. Possibly a very interesting and funny experience!

On Sunday Tregunnel Car Park will as usual be hosting the Show 'n' shine event at 8am and carrying on throughout the day. Here you can see an awesome display of some of the finest cars in Europe plus plently of traders will set up stands selling their merchandise so you can do a spot of shoping on your way round!

A fun-filled weekend for everyone!
