Pacific Coast Dream Machines, one of the coolest events in the Bay Area, resumed even bigger and better than before. The spectacular event returned to Half Moon Bay Airport (HAF) on April 30, after a three-year pandemic pause, and celebrated its 30th year of entertaining the community and raising funds for the Coastside Adult Day Health Center.
Participants exhibited their marvelous machines both on the ground and in the air. Spectators enjoyed periodic synchronized firing up of engines and a static display. The FAA staffed a temporary air traffic control tower for the one-day, action-packed event at HAF—ordinarily a non-towered airfield—to assure safety for those flying in for and participating in the event.
Dream Machines showcased some of the world’s coolest cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes and other motorized machines. The family-friendly event featured music, food trucks, Half Moon Bay Brewing Company’s specially crafted Classic Motor Head Ale, and the Greasemonkeys Kids Funzone, with bungee jumping, a climbing wall and face painting.
The Coastside Adult Day Health Center, located at 925 Main Street in Half Moon Bay, is the beneficiary of Dream Machines’ proceeds. This modern, adult community center, which opened in 2014, provides services to the area’s frail, elderly or disabled community. The community center is a safe, positive and caring alternative to nursing home care for those who do not need 24-hour skilled nursing and offers opportunities to get involved.

Dream Machines is held each year on the last Sunday in April, so mark your calendar for the next event on April 28, 2024. Learn more here: www.dreammachines.miramarevents.com.
