Vehicles of all shapes and sizes will cruise into town for the Hall County Sheriff’s Office’s second annual car, truck and motorcycle show.
The free event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at Laurel Park, 3100 Old Cleveland Highway, Gainesville.
Attractions include Gwinnett County’s anti-street-racing team and a motorcycle demonstration on how to avoid or maintain the bike during an accident. The Department of Driver Services will be on hand to do free motorcycle permits.
In addition a DJ and singing deputy Jonathan Jackson will entertain the crowd. Bounce houses, concessions, car and motorcycle product vendors and representatives from the Gainesville police and fire departments will be
“There will be something out there for everyone,” said Deputy Chad Mann, a community service officer at the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.
If you have a car, truck or motorcycle you’d like to enter in the show, registration is $25. Forms are available at the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, 610 Main St., in Gainesville.
A “People’s choice” award will be given as well as a “Sheriff’s choice” award.
Last year, 81 participants were in the car, truck and motorcycle show. So far this year, several new sponsors and vendors have signed up.
Proceeds from the car show will benefit the sheriff’s Christmas Bicycle Program, which has been in operation for nearly 20 years. The Sheriff’s Christmas Bicycle Program provides bicycles and a small present, such as a helmet, to needy children in the community. While funds for the program are collected year-round, the car show is a popular fundraiser for it.
“The car show is just one way we like to give back where you can actually participate and make a contribution other than just with money,” Mann said.
Mann said organizers decided to raise funds with a car show because of the good base of car aficionados in the Gainesville-Hall County area.
