The weather forecast for the weekend of May 18 -19 looks to be sunny and that is excellent news for the Car Show at Pagosa participants and spectators.
Pre-registration numbers for the Car Show already match last year’s total entries and, with last-minute registration, that is a good indication we will have increased attendance. There will be even more cars this year, as the classic vehicles line up along Lewis Street and are seen around town atvarious gatherings.
Beginning Friday evening, May 18, the cars can be viewed in the Town Park area, when registration and a barbecue will be held. This is a great place to take in the cars if you will not be able to attend the Show and Shine on Saturday. There will be music, a beer and wine garden, food and, of course, those exquisite cars.
On Saturday morning, beginning at about 8 a.m., the Car Show participants will start lining up along Lewis Street for the fourth Show and Shine.
There will be first-, second- and third-place awards given out in over a dozen categories.
This is the best time to see all the hard work that has gone into restoring these classic cars and thank the participants for coming to Pagosa from all over the region, the state and even Texas.
At the Show and Shine there will be food vendors and you can walk to all the downtown restaurants. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, live music with The Killens, and a beer and wine booth.
At 2 p.m., we will begin to give away the majority of the awards. Then, at 3 p.m., the drawing will be held for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Tickets will be available the day of the car show. Tickets for the raffle are only $25 and only 1,000 tickets are available. Prior to Saturday, tickets can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce and at locations throughout town from Chamber Board members.
After the raffle, the car show participants will move over to one of the Car Show’s sponsors, The Springs Resort, for a reception and even more awards, including the Golden Odometer (person that traveled the farthest) and Car Show Participants’ Choice. So, if you are going to be otherwise engaged during the day, swing by The Springs Resort and see the cars.
On Sunday morning, May 20, you have one more chance to see a good anumber of cars as their owners enjoy a group breakfast at The Plaza Grille around 8 a.m. before either heading out of town or up to Treasure Falls for a short cruise through Pagosa Country.
This is a beautiful time of year in Pagosa to enjoy a Car Show. If you have not registered for the Car Show at Pagosa, you can do so up to the day of the event. Get your car out of the garage and join in.
