New show venue, but same exciting fun-filled weekend, starting with the “Neon Cruise”, Friday evening, downtown The Dalles. It will be an “open” cruise this year, so no need to register ahead of time. It starts around 7pm and extends well into the night. Several downtown businesses will be having special events during the cruise. You can also pre-register for the show at Burgerville between 3 and 8 pm.
Then Saturday brings the “Show in the Shade”, an open “show & shine” type car show. This year we’ve moved it to Riverfront Park, exit 85 off of I84. A beautiful riverside venue with very easy access and plenty of parking on the grass. Starts at 9am, with the Parade of Champions awards ceremony beginning at 3pm. Goodie bags and dash plaques to the 1st 250 vehicles. $20 entry up to July 31, $25 after. 40+ awards, food and specialty vendors, oldies music and plenty of raffle prizes.
Then Saturday evening features the Eagles Car Show/Dinner/Dance from 5 to 11pm at the lodge, 2006 W 7th, The Dalles.
Finally, if you want one more chance to trophy, there’s the Dufur Classic Car Show, on Sunday in the Dufur Community Park, just 13 miles South of The Dalles, starting at 9am.
So, one day, two days or all three, how much fun do you want to have?
