Road Rebels Car Show & Blueberry Festival
Photos & Story by Dean Darnell
The Road Rebels of Mossyrock held their 10th Anniversary car show with over 200 registered participants! The weather was picture perfect with plenty of parking on grass at the schools' flat & level field. The early birds were lined up before the sun broke over Mossyrock Hill. The aroma of the Mossyrock Volunteer Fire Department's blueberry pancake breakfast filled the air.
The action begins immediately with Spider playing the "TOONS". Several vendors were open for business, as was our pin-striping guru. Raffle prizes & the 50/50 were ongoing. The always fun, & famous "Chicken Drop" was a constant draw. Our poker walk through town is always a great way to see the town and the Blueberry Festival activities. The quilting ladies were present with their personalized quilts, along with their own raffle prize. Cars start to line up before noon to participate in the mile long parade through town. NSRA inspectors were on hand providing safety inspections.
The "brick-it" car caught fire, much to the delight of everyone! Flames were everywhere & the fire dept. had to act quickly before the car and trailer were completely engulfed in flames.
Awards & trophies were presented at 3, with the long distance award going to Jim Gardner from California in his 1955 GMC pick-up. Our "Old Timer" award went to LeRoy Sill & his 1937 Chevy Gasser. Many thanks to all of the car clubs who attended. We really appreciated your attendance.
In 2016 the Road Rebels car club donated over $2000 to various charities and organizations in the community, which included a $1000 scholarship to a Mossyrock High School senior who is going into an automotive trade school. A good time was had by all. See you Aug. 5th, 2017.
