Be sure to look on online at clovisparkinthepark.com or oldtownclovis.org for the updated flyer with information on the 2nd Annual Old Town Clovis Classic Car Show. This event will be held on April 23 on the streets of downtown Clovis. The organizer of this event, the Business Organization of Old Town (B.O.O.T.) it working with local hot rod groups to make this an event you won’t want to miss. Last year 268 cars were entered.

There will be parking on Pollasky between 3rd and 7th Street, on 4th and 5th Street between Clovis and Woodworth and on Bullard between Pollasky and Woodworth. You can enter the show from 4th or 5th Street at Woodworth and also on Bullard at Woodworth. After parking your car or hot rod, head to the registration table to pick up your packet.

Last year the judging was done by People’s Choice. A change has been made this year and it will be a judged event with awards for 13 class. As the show grows, more classes will be added and the parking area will be enlarged. If you haven’t pre-registered yet, you may want to soon as t-shirts are included with pre-registrations.

The Red Triangle Burgers held its first Hot Rod Gathering on Tuesday, March 28. This gathering will be held on the last Tuesday of each month through September at its McKinley store. Bring your car, show it off and enjoy an evening out with other hot rodders.
