Sixth annual car show set for Saturday

Posted: April 16, 2013 - 11:17pm

The Evans Lions Club will hold its sixth annual Jim Metts Memorial Car Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Admission to the event is free, with a $25 registration fee for show
entries.

This will be the show’s first year at the Evans park, said Cathy Rhodes, a Lions Club member and co-chairwoman of the event with her husband, Mike.

“The venue was so wonderful,” she said. “(The club members) wanted to try it there because it’s a bigger area, plus they have the stage and we’ve got a live band.

“They wanted to try the venue there because several other car shows have been held there.”

About 100 vehicles were in the show last year, Rhodes said, with more participation expected this year.

The show is characterized by its variety, Rhodes said, with motorcycles, restored classic cars, muscle cars and exotic cars on display.

“It’ll just be a mixture of everything,” she said.

Vendors will be selling food and other goods, and there will be activities for children.

For more information, call Rhodes at (706) 294-2135.
