28th Annual Button's Woodies on the Pier
Saturday & Sunday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:45 p.m
Sponsored by Irvine Subaru
Where there is sand and surfing, you are likely to see Woody cars. In the 1960’s surfers found the roomy old Woody station wagons a convenient way to take their longboards to the ocean in search of the “perfect wave."
Watch for these incredible vehicles parading down from Ave. Del Mar and onto the pier both mornings. There will be a different set of 15 each day in a wide variety of colors and styles to see!
