ALTON — Alton’s 19th annual All-Wheels Drive-In Car Show will be 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday, June 12.
The event typically attracts 150 to 200 classic cars, hot rods and motorcycles, which the public is welcome to browse on Third, State and Belle streets. There is no charge for admission.
This year’s theme is superheroes. The Gotham Cruiser will make a special appearance from noon to 3 p.m. Come dressed as your favorite hero — children will enjoy complimentary face-painting and photo opportunities with costumed characters.
Alton Main Street organizes this Alton tradition with support from Time Machines Unlimited Car Club. Come out for the cars and stay for the live ‘50s and ‘60s rock music from the Smokin’ Oldies Band from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., a 50-50 drawing, vendor displays and food.
The fee is $15 to enter the judging, or just $10 to display your wheels. Registration for automobiles is 8 a.m. to noon, and trophies will be given at 4 p.m. Details on the 37 classes and 5 specialty awards can be found at DowntownAlton.com. This is a qualifying show for the 2016 Best of the Best car show competition.
Dash plaques and goodie bags are given to the first 150 registrants. If your company has promotional items that you would like to contribute to the goodie bags, email email@example.com or call (618) 463-1016 to arrange pick-up on or before Wed, June 8.
