It’s time to break out the wax and get that classic car of yours shined up and looking pretty. The annual Kiwanis Club of Marco Island Car show is coming and, as usual, it’s going to be a good one. Mark your calendar for February 17, and head over to the Marco Healthcare Center parking lot at 40 Heathwood Drive at 9:30 AM to see some true beauties.
For the past eight years, the Kiwanis Club has hosted the Car Show to help raise money for the organization’s main cause: providing scholarships and other opportunities to local children. Last year, 180 cars were displayed. This year, the club hopes to have even more cars as there are now additional spaces to accommodate them.
If you own a vintage, sports, hot rod, muscle car or other vehicle you feel is show quality bring it to the show. This is a great time to display your pride and joy and at the same time help raise money for children. As always, there is no charge to display your vehicle and trophies will be awarded in 20 different classes.
There is a $5 spectator donation and children under 12 are free. Hamburgers, hot dogs, Italian sausage, soda and water will be available for purchase and various vendors will also be on site. The Italian American club will be on site selling cakes, pastries and preparing Zeppoles (Italian pastries).
The Marco Charter High School guitar group will be performing as will the Marco Players young actors. Steve Reynolds will be back as guest MC. The $6 dollar table will be back with an array of purses, costume jewelry and other items.
The Kiwanis Club is looking forward to another successful Marco Car Show and encourages all to come by on February 17 and enjoy a day of fine cars and food all while helping local children. For questions or information, please call John DeRosa at 239-272-0816
