36th Annual 4×4 Gold Country Toy Run
Hosted by Hi-Landers 4WD Club
Pack up the babies and bring the old ladies and everyone come! This event is open to everyone and is always a lot of fun!
Bring camping chairs, blankets, pop-ups, fire pits, heaters, your wallets and that positive attitude. This event is for a wonderful cause and the main resource for our club’s ability to donate toys and food for families in need. In addition to the club donations, each member is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy or two. The cost is your choice but we usually say around $5.00 (as if that can buy anything these days!! lol) as well as additional food items. (Do I need to say they should be unopened or nonperishable???)
Meet at McDonalds near Hazel Ave and Hwy 50 by 8:30AM. A lot of us get there early and grab a coffee and breakfast sandwich.
We will caravan across the street to the Folsom Aquatic Center just before 9:00 and park along the far right of the center.
The Hi-Landers have a snack booth with chips, hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and drinks. We usually support them with buying from that as well. They have raffle prizes you can buy tickets for. I believe they are $1 each.
Sometimes club members will bring goodies to share, like cookies.
Santa is there all set up to take fun photos with and the air is full of music from the greatest DJ! (Plays a lot of Country and Western!) They usually have tables set up with activities for the kids (big and small).
Decorate your rig! They have a cute parade where the contestants drive by the crowd slowly and show off their efforts and then someone is picked a winner!
It usually lasts from 9:00-1:00ish so stay as long as you would like to enjoy the comradery and the day.
Bathrooms are open.
**Be sure to sign the registration book under our club!** We have won most participation for 257 years in a row now! Let’s keep the streak going.
Be there or be square!
