Car enthusiasts have their pick of Enumclaw events in the coming weeks, starting with the Les Schwab Fun in the Sun car show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the King County Fairgrounds.
This is the sixth year Enumclaw has hosted the event, which is a fund raiser for Children's Regional Medical Center. Last year, more than 700 cars, trucks, motorcycles and the like rolled into Enumclaw to compete in more than 34 classes including the prestigious "Best of Show."
Registration runs from 7 to 10 a.m. The entry fee is $20, and participants receive a "goodie bag" that includes a participation plaque and T-shirt.
The event also includes kids' games, activities and food.
Admission and parking is free.
Next up, street rods, cruisers, motorcycles, customs and hot rods will hit Enumclaw streets Sept. 11 as part of the third annual Cruise Into Fall Car Show this year.
The event is hosted by Stratocruisers Street Rod and Collectable Car Club.
Since this year's event falls on Sept. 11, organizers are honoring those agencies who serve our communities. The display will include an Enumclaw police cruiser and vintage 1921 fire truck provided by the Enumclaw Fire Department. Fire Department members will also offer a simulated automobile accident where they will demonstrate and explain the use of specialized tools like the Jaws of Life.
The event will also include entertainment with Seattle-area musician Richard Dean.
The show is open for all cars, trucks, motorcycles, customs and street rods, manufactured before 1980. There will be an "under 21" class for high school-aged and young adult participants.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. Vehicles will line Cole Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Dash plaques and goodie-bags are provided for the first 200 cars to register. The entrance fee, per car, is $15 after Sept. 1. Participants save $5 for registering before Sept. 1. Contact Mike Lebow at 360-825-6343 for information.
Spectators will be able to vote for their favorite in a variety of categories.
