Sounds cool, huh? But, what does it mean? Think of this event as a horse and carriage ride, but you just get to ride in the best cars and trucks around. Yes, that’s right, you will no longer need to admire sweet rides from a distance at a car show. At this event, you can actually pay to get in them and cruise.
RodRides is bringing the plan, Hot Rod Garage and Soda Pops are bringing their local love of cars, and the AgriCultural Museum and Arts Center is bringing the space to help raise funds for the nonprofit, Girl with Grit Program and give the people of Boerne, TX the coolest tour of our town possible. 100% of proceeds will go to the nonprofit.

All vehicles must be registered with the state, insured, and street legal.
Outside of your name and vehicle, your registration information will remain confidential.

Girl with Grit Program
Girl with Grit Program is a nonprofit in Boerne, TX that has gotten the attention of strong women, car lovers, and many more around the country as the girls work on their 1935 Chevy Truck and launch their own businesses.
The program seeks to teach young women and girls “We can do it!” through real life experiences and examples. Girls do everything from design and sell products to art and artisan work to skilled trades.
The program originally was developed by Blythe Zemel (Blythe Arts and Safety Sasses) and has garnered board members Staci Andrews from the locally famed Soda Pops and Ashley Robertson from ToyMakerz on History Channel. The board is filled with other strong and impressive women from all walks of life.
We believe that strong girls grow up to be strong women!
