Oakland Community Theater is preparing for a memorable 16th annual Car Show & Shine this coming Saturday, May 11th. Registration begins at 8:00 am, and the show runs from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Classic cars fill Locust street from many eras with a promise to bring back fond memories for those strolling up the street to the melodies of The Neil Johnson Band, performing live at the event.
A “classic” is defined as a car that is 30 years or older; the classes of vehicles competing include:
1930 – 1939
1940 – 1949
1950 – 1959
1960 – 1969
1970 – 1989
1959 & older
1960 – 1989
Last year’s show registered over 150 cars and trucks, quite a show for our little city. Winners in each category of the show will be chosen by popular vote and announced at 2:30 pm. Be sure to pick up a ballot at the registration table.
Oakland businesses will be open for the event. Antique shops and dining establishments invite patrons to enjoy a fun day in the historic downtown.
Don’t miss the excitement! Come and join the fun at the Oakland Car Show & Shine. The weather promises to be warm and sunny!
