Lewiston's "HAN" Opens with an Explosion
Photos & Story by Annette Barton
Lewiston, Idaho - the 30th Annual LHAN (Lewiston Hot August Nights) started off with a bang on Thursday August 25, 2016 at the Rogers Motors Tune-Up Show and 330 classic car owners took advantage of the great venue and weather. For 3 days the L-C Valley was taken over by some of the nicest cars and trucks in the west, from California to Canada. The Friday night cruise was a blast with many locals who don't put their classics in the show, out in force enjoying the cruise and squeaking the tires 'just a bit'. Rocker Lita Ford headlined the Friday night concert which is how the LHAN began - as a concert venue produced by radio station CAT-FM which is still a partner and sponsor of this great event.
The all day Saturday downtown classic car show had 356 registered entrants, each of whom enjoyed fun organized cruising, awesome shopping in downtown, music all day long and appreciative spectators checking out their beautiful cars.
The volunteers from the non-profit group 'Beautiful Downtown Lewiston' organize and run the car show portion of Lewiston Hot August Nights and help funnel the proceeds into local community non-profit groups who need assistance. Frontman and longtime Valley car enthusiast and show organizer Bill Miller always draws amazing cars and huge crowds. Kudos to them all for keeping this great summer event going!
The 2017 LHAN is set for August 24, 25, 26 - be there! Check out motels, online early registration and other information at their website: lewistonhan.com
