Downtown Natchitoches was filled with over several thousand visitors as the 12th annual Natchitoches Car Show was held Sept. 29. There was something for every automotive taste as the show featured over 350 cars ranging from all original parts, to lovingly restored, to an imaginatively configured art car.
The Natchitoches Lions Club and their LEO youth group had their traditional “wrap the car” split the pot fundraiser for the Lions summer camp. Interested persons could pay $20 and receive enough tickets to wrap around the car of their choice (as well as the occasional tow truck)! Natchitoches native and live painter, Morgan L. Guidry, created an original painting of the day’s events which was auctioned off with the proceeds donated to charity. The First Baptist Church of Robeline handed out water, snacks and provided a place to sit and rest near the Magnolia Spa.
The Natchitoches Car Show has grown over the past 12 years into one of the largest and most eagerly awaited events held in the city.
