Sugar Grove—As part of the annual Sugar Grove Corn Boil festivities, American Legion Post No. 1271 will host the sixth annual Car Show on Saturday, July 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 65 First St.
Registration closes at noon for all participants that want to join in the competition. Along with registering the car, truck, tractor or motorcycle, the participant must pay a $10 dollar entry fee.
The website states that each vehicle of choice brought will be voted within six different classes.
The best cars will be ranked with first, second and third places. Trucks and special interest vehicles will be judged on the same level.
Best motorcycles in the show will have a first- and second-place award given.
Rat Rods, along with tractors, will only have a first place.
There will also be one overall award, Best of Show.
Along with a regular car show, there will also be a Swap Meet/Car Corral area. Holding a spot in this area will require a $20 entry fee. This is for participants who wish to sell their car, motorcycle or tractor during the show.
Also, according to Tammy Carter, representing the Sugar Grove American Legion, the swap section of the show will be for vendors to sell used or new car parts.
There will be no alcohol allowed in this section of the Corn Boil.
The rain date scheduled for this event will be Sunday, July 29.
