This year’s show will be on Sunday, October 8th, 2017, with a rain date of October 15th, 2017.

Show car owners can register their cars from 7 A.M. until Noon. This is a judged show, featuring 43 classes with 3 awards per class, for a $20 registration fee for those not already pre-registered.  Eight special awards will also be given, such as Best Display, Club Participation, and Longest Distance Traveled to the show. Also, each year a set amount of show cars will receive Dash plaques, as they register their cars.
