Annual Car Show Moved Downtown

The Coushatta Red River Chamber of Commerce moved the annual spring car show to downtown Coushatta. Local and out of town auto enthusiasts turned out to park up and down Front Street.  And vendors had plenty of space to offer their wares and some scrumptious food.

Despite threatening skies twenty-six vehicles entered the event.  As you can see from the photos there was plenty of “show-room fresh” iron lining the street. 

Chamber President Karen Squires said, “The move to Front Street has been amazing.  It will open up so much more opportunity to grow the show in coming years.  It was a great start on Front Street.”

Similar thoughts were expressed by Mayor Johnny Cox, “More room for more cars and plenty of room for vendors is what we have on Front Street.  And there is plenty of parking and room to expand in the future.”  Cox and his sons brought their classic Cadillac convertible.

The judges came around shortly before noon and looked each ride over.  They checked under the hood also.  The trophy ceremony was originally scheduled for 2:30, however this was moved up to about 1:00 because of the threat of rain.

The trophies were awarded.  And each winning vehicle got a rousing round of applause from everyone in attendance. The last award was presented just before gentle drops of rain began to fall.
