Day of Colors, it was certainly that! All sorts of colors in all shapes and sizes, from cars to altars to paintings to even, horses; it was a spectacular day.

The car enthusiasts showed up in masses with beautiful, movable works of art that were truly a wonder to behold. Many people wandered the streets, listening to cool tunes and talking about which car they would buy if they could. For me it was the incredible cream Zephyr that was for sale…it wouldbe mine if only I didn’t have to pay off my student loans!

The car show was a huge success, as was the art in the park with children happily painting under the gazebo. The art exhibit was filled with incredible objects like the incredible and intricate boxes by Lorrie Polley or the coolly carved wooden horses. There were festive paintings and delicate sketches and figurines galore!

The Art Tour was full of interesting studios to visit, showing visitors all aspects of creation to final product.

The People’s Choice award went to Jon Moreno, while the Judges’ Choice Awards went to Anna Jeffrey and Jon Moreno, Ty Hadden and Bernie Nienber.

The day ended in the lovely twilight of the evening, under the stars and lanterns of the new Magma Club…enjoying delectable food to beautiful music.

“On behalf of the Superior Chamber of Commerce, we would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers, and supporters…also a great big thanks to Jim Elgan for putting on a fantastic car show,” said event coordinator Rachelle Casillas.
