COARSEGOLD — Pedal to the metal! With multiple classes of vehicles being judged, the Coarsegold Car Show cruises into town on Saturday, June 29, at Coarsegold Historic Village.
The Marine Corps League Griswold Mountain Detachment #1121 and the Coarsegold Chamber of Commerce have teamed up for the second year of the popular and recently resurrected event, which has taken place most years since 2008.
Doors open at 6 a.m., and the show runs from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., when judging stops. There will be an awards ceremony immediately afterwards. Also on-hand will be vendor booths including food, music and a raffle.
Admission to the car show is free to the public and parking is free. The registration entry fee for participants is $30 the day of the show. In an effort to remain inclusive, organizers say everyone is encouraged to bring a car, and generations will be judged separately.
Proceeds from the event go to the Marine Corps League Griswold Mountain Detachment #1121, where it’s directed toward assistance for local veterans, scholarships for graduating high school students, Toys 4 Tots in Eastern Madera County, and honoring deceased veterans with flags.
Good music and great cars — what could be better for a Saturday? For registration and more information, contact the Coarsegold Chamber of Commerce or call George Gardner at (559) 580-9569.
