Bunny Run Car Show Wheels into Jackson, TN

April 18, 2012

The 20th annual Bunny Run Car Show leaps back into Jackson April 20-22 with hundreds of street rods, custom cars and trucks from 1972 and prior on display at Jackson Fairgrounds Park. The annual event is sponsored by the Jackson Rod & Custom Car Club and is held each Spring in April near Easter.

Organizers estimate that approximately 400 to 500 cars will be attending this year from over 12 states bringing 1,000 to 1,500 people to Jackson. There will also be vendors and a swap meet area at the car show.
 
The Bunny Run is open to the public on Saturday, April 21st from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday, April 22nd from 8:00 am to 10:30 am. Admission is $4.00 per person and children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. 100% of the gate proceeds go to the charity event. It benefits the Underprivileged Children's Christmas Shopping Spree that allows needy children in Jackson and Madison County to go on a Christmas shopping spree for gifts and clothes they otherwise would not be able to afford. Donations will also be accepted at the door. Fairgrounds Park is located in historic downtown Jackson, Tennessee at 800 South Highland Avenue.
 
The Bunny Run host hotel is the Econo Lodge next to Casey Jones Village. Additional participating hotels in Jackson are Comfort Suites also located next to Casey Jones Village, Guesthouse Inn, Quality Inn, All Suites Hotel and Best Western Carriage House.
