6th Lake Country car show

The sixth annual Lake Country Customs and Classics car show is expected to be bigger than ever this year with an anticipated 400 vehicles on display.

Lake Country Customs and Classics is a non profit organization with all profits going to charity in Lake Country. The show is this Sunday, Aug 24 at Swalwell Park in Lake Country. 

The show is free to the public, however show manager Ron Volk asks that visitors donate cash or a non-perishable food item for the food bank.

Gates open to the public at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. There will be live entertainment all day featuring the Flashback Band and Almost Alan a Tribute to Alan Jackson.

There is also a water park on site for the kids and food vendors.

Registration fee for the cars is $20 and every car or truck registered will have a chance to win $1,000 cash or a very nice door prize.

There are 15 trophies to be won, including a Mayors choice award.

On Saturday August 23 the cars will do a cruise around Lake Country. This will be hosted by the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce.

The cars will start to assemble on Main Street at 4 p.m. and the cruise will start ay 5 p.m.

A route map and driving instructions can be found on their website www.lccc.me. After the cruise the participants will be treated to a free spaghetti dinner.

The Sunday portion of the show at Swalwell Park will be run by Volk along with wife Kathy and their volunteers.

Volk says he would like to invite everyone to join them for what he believes will be one of the best cars shows in the province.

Whether it is a classic, hot rod, muscle car, pro touring car or just a car that you want to show, he encourages you to come out.
