Prowers Partners for Progress Holds Lamar Car Show



This past weekend, August 17-18th saw the 1st Annual Downtown Custom & Classic Expo held in Lamar, put on by Trevor La Cost and Chris Duffy after more than a year of planning.

There was great weather for a great turnout which offered a variety of music acts both days, vendors and vehicles of every stripe, class and color, from two wheeled motorcycles, to three wheeled hybrids that look as they had just landed and of course your traditional classic cars, from street rods to restored versions of notable cars that were serviceable family vehicles to the super sport lines.

Sections of Beech Street, east and west, were closed to traffic to accommodate the cars on display, while vendors were also set up street-side, in the chamber parking lot, on South 4th Street, the newly refurbished parking lot and in the Enchanted Forest.

Downtown businesses were accommodating the increased traffic on Saturday while the Shore Arts Center remained open to host visitors for a DCCE art display as well as a swap and sell.

For the Kids

The table in front of the stage at the Enchanted Forest was covered with awards for presentation at the close of the event, while visitors in the Forest spent time at the annual Firehouse Carnival, presented by the Lamar Fire Auxiliary which has become a fund-raising event for the annual 4th of July fireworks display.
