Hundreds of people gathered in Downtown Newberry on Saturday for the 26th annual car show.
The car show is put on by the Tahquamenon Valley Cruisers. Spectators had the chance to see 60 cars as well as other activities like a tractor pull for children and shopping from various vendors. The cars could win titles in any of 29 different categories. The $15 registration fee or $12 preregistration fee for each car goes towards various charities such as purchasing clothing for local children in need.
â??This has just been a really fun family dayâ?? said Vicki Fall, treasurer of the Tahquamenon Valley Cruisers. â??It is free to the spectators, so the kids, mom and dad, grandmas and grandpas, can come down. We have had several of them that have come just to spend the day together, look at the cars and enjoy the day.â??
The Tahquamenon Valley Cruisers have been in charge of the car show for the past 21 years. Aside from the entry fee, Newberry Motors donated cash prizes for the car show participants. The Cruisers hope to raise around $2000 this year for charity.
