The car show begins at 5:00 p.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m. 

At 9:00 p.m., over 45 trophies will be presented for Best of Show and Spectators’ Choice awards, as well as Principal’s Choice, Mayor’s Choice, and Merchants’ Choice awards.

The awards ceremony will take place at the intersection of King and Market Streets. Attendees will receive voting ballots for the Best of Show and Spectators’ Choice awards upon entry to the show.
