Lake Land College to host 16th Annual Car Show

This family friendly event is hosted by the Lake Land College Automotive Club and will be held on Saturday, May 4, on the college's campus in Mattoon. Registration will be from 9 a.m. until noon, with the winners to be announced at approximately 3 p.m. For the Car Show, there is a registration fee of $15 on the day of the show or participants can pre-register for $10 by visiting LLC Web site.

There are 17 classes of vehicles that will be judged with more than 40 first, second and third place trophies being awarded.  Club Choice Awards will be awarded in best engine detail, best interior, best paint, farthest distance driven, as well as a Club Choice Award, which is a 6-foot trophy. Judging will be done by Lake Land Automotive Club students.  The “Go Green” class is open again this year and judges will look for ways vehicles have incorporated sustainable practices into their vehicle. 

The Car Show will also feature a Stereo Competition from 9 a.m. to noon, which will be judged by the Lake Land College Future Electronics Technicians Club. For this, there is a $20 initial entry fee with a $5 re-entry fee. No early registration is available for the Stereo Competition, and only cash will be accepted as payment. 

Door prizes will be given away during the day, including dash plaques to the first 50 participants, a 50/50 drawing and music. Participants must be present to win. Food and drinks will be offered on sight.
