The River City Classics Car Club has their foot on the gas pedal as their 16th annual Show ‘N Shine, Burn-Out Show and Cruise Night are fast approaching.
The Burn-Out Show and Cruise Night will take place on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and the Show ‘N Shine will follow on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at George Lane Memorial Park and Downtown High River. Although, registration for the Show ‘N Shine will be from 7 to 10 a.m. on Sept. 23.
According to Al Leonhardt, show chairman, for the past few years the event has had just under 1,200 cars at the Show ‘N Shine. He said there will also be live entertainment in the park and 60 food vendors will be in attendance.
“The first year we had it we had about 50 cars so I think we’ve grown pretty dramatically,” Leonhardt said.
At the Show ‘N Shine, Leonhardt said people attending should expect all different types of cars.
“It’s anything and everything. From hot rods, muscle cars (to) some classics but I would say the majority tend to be cars from the late ‘50s through the ‘60s,” Leonhardt said.
