Third annual Clarkdale Car Show set for March 9
More than 100 vehicle entries expected

CLARKDALE - The Clarkdale-Jerome Lions Club will host its third annual Clarkdale Car Show on Saturday March 9. The show will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clarkdale Town Hall at 39 N. Ninth St.

Admission to the show is free. Vehicle entries until Feb. 23 will be $15 per vehicle, and $20 after. All kinds of vehicles and motorcycles are welcome.

"Any kind of car or truck is welcome," said Dave Andrews of the Lions Club.

A People's Choice award will be given to the most popular vehicle in the show. Andrews explained that the club only does the People's Choice award instead of a lot of classes with first, second and third places recognized.

"We're not getting into giving trophies for each individual class of cars," Andrews said. "The People's Choice is the one that the people like best."

He explained that each visitor to the show receives a ticket. They can then write the name of their favorite entry on the ticket to vote for their favorite vehicle.

Andrews said that one of the most interesting entries last year was a 1909 Sears Runabout.

"Last year we had almost 100 cars," Andrews said.

This year he expects to beat that number with at least 100 entries. He said that vehicles came from all through the Verde Valley and Sedona, as well as the entire Phoenix metropolitan area and even several entries from the White Mountains.

Five vehicles in one club drove up from Sierra Vista in southern Arizona.

The show will also offer 50/50 drawings and raffle prizes. Raffle prizes include three days in Laughlin, Nevada; tickets from Blazin' M Ranch; the Verde Canyon Railroad; and Out of Africa.

Refreshments will be available for purchase, including water, soda, coffee, donuts, hot dogs and subway sandwiches.

All proceeds go to help charities through the Lions Club.

"One hundred percent of the money we take in goes back out," Edwards said.

The club's charities include eye exams and glasses for people in need.

He said the club also donates to a camp for handicapped children in the White Mountains. The club also helps sponsor the free concerts in the park in Clarkdale each summer. Local food banks also receive donations from the club.
