26th annual auto, truck and motorcycle show coming to the 2021 ham festival
Some free time from the Trigg County Country Ham Festival and its annual car, truck and motorcycle show was not ideal.
But this Saturday he enters his 26th year, is sponsored by the Men’s Brotherhood of the Baptist Church of Cadiz, and longtime local businessman Larry Kemp notes that the entrance fee of $ 20 – Dues go a long way towards the missions, which includes outreach assistance for “The Way” and its programming for school-aged children.
More importantly, it’s just a really great time – and something we sorely missed last fall.
Kemp expects anything and everything to be on the pitch early Saturday morning, with a “Best In Show” selected by the votes of the attendees.
And Kemp insisted a lot on this point: if it works, bring it.
There’s a new part in the cars, trucks and motorcycles showcase for this year, and potentially beyond. Kemp insists that model enthusiasts, young and old, bring their precious works of art for display – in what he hopes will become a new dimension of the annual tradition.
The park is expected to be full by early afternoon, not least because Cadiz Cruz-In has been such a success all summer, and especially because the weather on Saturday could be wonderful. The National Weather Service reports mostly sunny skies and a high of 82, with a calm southerly breeze in the early morning.
All car and model registrations will be accepted until 1:00 p.m., with prizes awarded at 3:00 p.m. Registration starts at 8 am and again benefits Bangladesh Church Building and Youth Ministries “The Way”.
Dash plates will be awarded for all entries, and top 10 car, Top 10 truck and Top 3 motorcycle awards will be given out. Gift bags and door prizes will be available for all nominations, while an audience award, a mayor’s award and an executive judge’s award will be among the honors awarded.
No alcohol is allowed during the event. For more information, you can reach Kemp at (270) 350-0973 or Eric Sweno at (270) 350-0748.
