Washburn Tech Gears Up for Car Show

March 22, 2016

The community is invited to make a pit stop at the Washburn Tech Car Show from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6 at 5724 SW Huntoon St. This annual event is free to the public; the car entry fee is $15 prior to the event or $20 on the day of the show.

Car entries will be divided into five classes: custom/low riders, antique cars and trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles and special interest. Additional attractions include a live band and various food trucks. The event also offers several of its traditional activities including a climbing wall, a car bash, a heavy equipment rodeo and a silent auction.

The Washburn Tech Car Show is a yearly fundraiser for Care Closet, a committee that provides short-term financial assistance to Washburn Tech students who need help to complete their education. Aid can take the form of gas money, bus fare or a bag of groceries.

To register for this year’s show, contact Washburn Tech instructor Mike Evenson at 785.228.6313. You also can find registration forms at WashburnTech.edu or in Washburn Tech’s main office.
