Each year many festivals and outdoor events take place throughout our area. On Saturday, June 9th, one of this year’s most eagerly-anticipated events will take place at the Riverside Shopping Center in St. Paul, between the Dollar General Store and Advance Auto. Yes, I’m talking about the Crooked Road Rod Run Car Show!
Spectator admission is FREE. That’s right – I said FREE. Hundreds of people attended this family-friendly event last year, and even more people and more cars are expected this year!
Vehicle registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. The entry fee for each vehicle is $20. All proceeds from vehicle registrations will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Last year’s show raised $3400 for this worthy organization.
Numerous prizes will be awarded during the show. Funding for these prizes is made possible by contributions from generous sponsors.
A full range of concessions will be offered. Benny Mays, everyone’s favorite DJ, will keep things lively.
The Crooked Road Cruisers have worked hard to make this event happen. We offer our thanks and congratulations to them for their fine efforts.
I’ll be there on Saturday and I hope to see you there, too. Here are some photos from last year’s show….
UPDATE: Putting on a big event is lots of work. On Friday evening the folks pictured below were busy with preliminaries for tomorrow’s show.
