Car owners can participate free of charge. There won't be any
judging or trophies -- just a day of enjoying beautiful cars -- but
the first 200 participants will receive dashboard plaques.
Visitors can admire the cars and stroll the grounds of the 1870s
Victorian mansion from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The suggested donation is
$5 for adults or $10 for the entire family, with proceeds going to
the David Davis Mansion Foundation.
The auto show is sponsored by the Car Community Automobile Club.
Food concessions will be offered by St. Mary's Boy Scout Troop 20,
and ice cream will be provided by Schwan's Quality Foods. There will
be music by the band Protégé, thanks to sponsorship by Bill and
Marie Schwartz and Don and Cindy Kopack. Event T-shirts will be
printed on-site by Rutman Screenprinting.
