Alton’s 22nd annual All-Wheels Drive-In Car Show, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, June 9, has been postponed due to flooding until Sunday, June 30th.
The event will take place from from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., and typically attracts 200 classic cars, hot rods and motorcycles, which the public is welcome to browse on 3rd, 4th, State and Belle Streets. There is no charge for admission.
This year’s theme is the Fabulous 1950s. A pinup contest at noon will celebrate the glamour, sophistication and class of the good old days. Guests will enjoy ‘50s rock music performed by the Smokin’ Oldies Band from 2 to 4 p.m.
Alton Main Street organizes this tradition with support from Time Machines Unlimited Car Club. A 50-50 drawing, vendor displays and festival food court are included.
The fee is $15 to enter the judging, or just $10 to display your wheels. Dash plaques & goodie bags are given to the first 150 registrants. Registration for automobiles is from 8 to noon, and trophies will be given at 4 p.m. Details on the 37 classes and five specialty awards can be found at www.DowntownAlton.com,
