The Riverside Chamber of Commerce will say goodbye to summer in its usual fashion this weekend by hosting its annual car show on Sunday, Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Riverside.
The show, which drew 260 vehicles of all kinds – from classic cars to hot rods and more – is juried and some 90 trophies will be given to car owners in a variety of classes. The entry fee to be part of the contest is $25 per vehicle.
The vehicles will be lined up on both sides of the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad tracks – on East and Pine avenues near the water tower and on Bloomingbank Road in front of the Riverside train depot.
But entry to the show by the general public is free. There will be food vendors available and Bill Wildt from the cable access stalwart “Motorsports Unlimited” will be making the rounds, interviewing car owners and filming footage for his show.
The show is organized on behalf of the chamber by Rick Rovella at the Riverside Garage.
