Those driving into Coalville this weekend will be surprised with a blast from the past. The 23rd installment of Coalville's Super Cruise Car Show will be coming to Main Street this Saturday, July 13.
The event will feature three separate cruising groups convening in Coalville to show off their unique and antique cars and motorcycles.
Coalville City Council Member Andrea Hewson is the organizer of the Super Cruise Car Show and spoke more about the event, which is sponsored by Coalville City and JC Hackett Oldies Productions.
"The car show will be going for 23 years this year," Hewson said. "I've been doing it for about five because I have a business in Coalville and it's one of the bigger events that happens in Coalville."
The city will close Main Street at 1 p.m. as the three cruising groups arrive from Ogden, Salt Lake City and Evanston, Wyoming. Hewson said the groups will attempt to time their arrivals so they all arrive simultaneously.
The cars will all be parked by 3 p.m. and Main Street will feature many different vendors selling items such as car memorabilia. Food vendors will also be present and a kids' area will be available and free to the public.
Between 4 and 5 p.m., Hewson says the city as well as the larger sponsors present will all choose their own personal car to nominate for 'Best in Show.' Mayor Duane Schmidt will also select his favorite car. Among all the chosen cars, an overall 'Best in Show' will be determined. Categories for motorcycles will also be included.
After the awards, there will be local entertainment, a street dance and fireworks. Hewson spoke about the best part of the Super Cruise.
"The best part is all the different kinds of cars," Hewson said. "At 200 to 350 cars, this show is the biggest in the state. For some people it's a street dance, for some people it's about cars. Most importantly, it's a family event."
Hewson attributes her interest in old and antique cars to the fact that she grew up in Detroit. She encourages everyone to come and check out this unique event.
"Come up and see it, it's one of the largest showings of old and antique cars," Hewson said. "Coalville is also a nice place to spend a weekend."
