Registration the day of the event will be $20.00. Registration will take place from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Participants need to enter at the west end of Stewart Parkway at Gladden Street. Judging will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. with cash prizes being awarded by 2 p.m. All proceeds from the registrations will be donated to charity.
When asked why he was interested in sponsoring a car show, Steve Lee of Lee Chevrolet stated he thought it would be a fun family event that could be enjoyed by all ages and would help fill the time waiting for the music and fireworks later in the evening. Larry Lang, a Washington resident and show entrant, used to attend a 4th of July car show in Greenville. Lang thought it is nice to have an avenue for people to come downtown and enjoy a day on Washington's waterfront in celebration of Independence Day, especially with the holiday falling in the middle of the work week. Lang also thought it was great to have a car show that awards cash prizes versus trophies.
Other activities include a special edition of Saturday Market that morning and a corn hole tournament that runs throughout the day. Many downtown merchants and restaurants will be open. Live music by the Dickens Band will be starting at 6 p.m., Joy the Clown will be in Festival Park to entertain the kids, George & Martha Washington will be available for photos, there will be food vendors, and a Bills' hotdog eating contest sponsored by Coldwell Banker Coastal Rivers Realty.
Fireworks will begin at 9:15 p.m.
Join us for a fun filled 4th on Washington's beautiful waterfront.
