Central Florida Street Rod Association - Activities

Club Activities

Cruise-ins

CFSRA members attend many of the local cruise-ins both individually and as a group. Most often we go to monthly cruise-ins held in Lake Wales, Lakeland, Plant City and Winter Haven.

Recently club members have been cruising on selected Friday nights as a group to a local drive-in on for a burger and bull session.

Christmas Party

The club holds a Christmas party each year to reward those members who have been active in club events throughout the year.

NSRA

We have a club tent at the NSRA Southeast Nationals in Tampa every year. It serves as a source of shade and a common parking area for member cars. Club members conduct kids games at the show for NSRA.

Every year some CFSRA members attend the NSRA South Nationals in Knoxville, TN and the NSRA Nationals in Louisville where they also conduct kids games.

Miscellaneous

In the past, the club has been asked to participate in some unique events such as chaeuffering a bride and groom to a wedding, driving a couple to an anniversary party, parking our cars as backdrop for a 50’s party and displaying our cars at a local nursing home to cheer up the residents. Club members are always up for a good time.
