That’s right! It’s time, once again, to make your plans to awe with, or just be awed by, the beautiful cars at Annual Oracle Spring Run Car Show, now in its 27th year.

On April 20, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., the Pinal County Courthouse park in Oracle, 1040 Justice Dr., just off American Avenue, will proudly display an amazing selection of historic and unusual cars.

This celebration of beatific, beautiful automotive genius is timed to coincide with the Oracle Oaks Festival, which is being sponsored by the Oracle Community Center, to give you more bang for your buck, with no backfires!

What better way to celebrate the coming of Spring than a nice drive in the country, a gathering of friends and family, and feasting the eyes on a field of bright wonders, sparkling in the sun like chrome-laden flowers? Please do not water the cars! No, nor try to plant their roots in the dirt. We said “like”!

A full day of events await your pleasure, beginning with a 9:30 a.m. parade, then moving on to the car show, book sale, daytime entertainment and lots of yummy food. Entrance is free for visitors, and everyone is welcome!

The entry fee for cars starts at $20, but after April 15 it goes up to $25; so register early! This includes a T-shirt, dash plaque, lunch for two, goody bag, 50s music, 50/50 drawing, poker walk and donuts at parade lineup. Entry forms can be picked up at Car Quest in Oracle, Dale’s Collision Center in San Manuel, My Cousins Closet in Oracle or online at www.CruisinArizona.com or www.OracleHistoricalSociety.org.

Trophies will be awarded in 17 classes at 2:30 p.m. Vendors are welcome. All Car Show proceeds benefit the Oracle Historical Society and its education and historic preservation efforts.

There will be loads of entertainers and vendors at the annual Oracle Oaks Festival.

So, come one, come all and come hungry!

For information on the car show call 520-896-9609 to leave a message for Margaret, or e-mail her at m.guyton@msn.com.
