The Tomah American Legion Post 201 will handle the car show at the Monroe County Fair Sunday, July 29.
The show starts at 9 a.m., and people can register their vehicles until noon.
American Legion Post 201 commander Todd Steffel said the Legion was asked to step forward to manage the third annual show after the death of Todd Stark, a noted car enthusiast who had organized the car show at the fair and numerous other area shows. The Legion conducted its own car show last fall and is gearing up for its second annual show Saturday, Sept. 15.
Steffel said Stark gave the Legion “a lot of good advice” for running a show. Steffel said visitors to the show can expect to see “a good variety of cars.”
“Nothing is trailered in,” Steffel said. “People can appreciate them because they’re driven in. Some of these bigger shows have these really nice looking older cars, but do they run?”
There is a $10 entry fee per vehicle, and people can register their vehicles the day of the event. Prizes will be awarded in the following categories: public choice, fire chief choice, police chief choice and mayor choice. The first 20 participants will receive a dash plaque.
Proceeds from the show fund youth projects at Tomah Recreation Park.
The show is part of a Sunday that features family-oriented activities with no gate fee.
