Birch Bay kicks off its second annual car show at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday and Sunday, August 13 and 14 at Birch Bay Beach Park. Each day will feature a beer garden, live music and car competitions.
Those who claim victory in the weekend car competitions will win prizes. Judges will select the winner on Saturday and the public chooses the winner on Sunday.
Car show registration is required and is due by August 11, or until 300 cars have been entered.
A variety of music acts will perform during the two-day event, including local favorites, The Replayzmentz, a Led Zeppelin tribute band called ZEPTOLOGY and the Blaine High School Band, just to name a few.
Event hosts encourage participants to don clothing from the ’50s and ’60s. Those accurately dressed to the times may win a special award.
The event is sponsored by the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce as well as the Blaine Birch Bay Parks and Recreation District 2. To register, visit birchbaychamber.com. Proof of registration is required upon entrance.
