Special to The PREVIEW
The first of summer 2013 events roars into town with the fifth annual Car Show at Pagosa on Friday and Saturday, May 17-18.
Festivities begin at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 17, on the athletic field at Town Park with the Party in the Park event. There will be car registration, a welcome barbecue, a beer and wine garden and live concert for the participants and spectators. This is a great time for the public to get a sneak preview of some of the cars that will be on display Saturday.
On Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., vehicles will be parked in the 400 block of historic Lewis Street.
Saturday’s “Show and Shine” event gives spectators a chance to admire antique and custom cars and motorcycles. Music, displays, delicious food and car-related vendors will be on hand to add to the festivities. There will be a special presentation by the Colorado State Patrol with their rollover simulator and there will be child seat safety demonstrations.
We will again be serving beers brewed by Pagosa’s own award-winning microbrewery, Pagosa Brewing Co. Representatives of AAA of Colorado will be on hand to give away a year’s free AAA membership.
Come out and see who this year’s show award winners are, at 3 p.m. on May 18.
There will be a special reception for the car show participants Saturday at 5:30 p.m., sponsored by The Springs Resort. The Participant’s Choice, Golden Odometer, Club with the Most Participants and People’s Choice Award, along with second-place awards, will be distributed at this time.
This event showcases some spectacular vehicles and attention to detail. It is a photographer’s dream and a great way to spend some time with the family for free or at a minimal cost.
