It's summer time again and one of the best things about driving Iowa's roads is seeing all of the classic cars and motorcycles out and about. It's a great way to enjoy being outside and seeing some restored history all at the same time. If you love classic cars, then downtown Monticello is the best place to be!
On Saturday, June 8th, the annual Monti in Motion Car Show will be held downtown. From 8am-2pm, you can view all of the great cars, trucks, and motorcycles your eyes can stand! Registration is only available the day of the show and there will be approximately 40 awards in 20 different categories. All registrants also get a special chance at a great door prize: Two tickets to the entertainment of the Great Jones County Fair, good for Thursday, Friday, or Sunday evening. And the event entertainment will make it hard to decide with a choice of Tim McGraw, Hootie & the Blowfish, and TobyMac. Good luck to the winner!
As if a chance to drool over some great automobiles AND potentially win tickets to the greatest event in the state wasn't enough for you, you will be able to eat some fantastic food, courtesy of the Monticello Eagles Club, Ice Cream Island, and local downtown businesses that are open. Additionally, here will be a 50/50 drawing held that is open to everyone in attendance. Monti in Motion Chairman Doug Herman said, "The event is unique because it's downtown unlike a lot of car shows and it allows people to get together to appreciate what others have. It's something fun to do while reminding everyone how great downtown Monticello is."
As always, this event would not be possible but for the great community support. Special thanks to the event sponsors: Black Hills Energy, F&M Bank, Fidelity Bank & Trust, M Town Tire & Auto, Freese Motors, as well as media sponsors: KDST and KMCH.
After the car show, any registrant is welcome to go on a 1-hour car cruise of the area. It will end at Teddy's Barn & Grill where there will be some great food and drink specials for everyone. Plus, it will give you another shot to look at your favorite vehicles again as they line up a final time.
Join us for great cars, good food, and fun times!
