The Natchitoches Classic Car Show Kicks off with a Poker Run and Fish Fry

The 2021 Natchitoches Classic Car Show got off to a fun start Friday, October 1, as several hundred car owners and car lovers gathered at the downtown riverbank. The evening’s events started a bit earlier in the day with the traditional poker run, back after a hiatus in 2020. The fun then moved to downtown as the car owners enjoyed a superb fried fish dinner prepared by master chef Layne Miller and a crew of hard-working volunteers. The car show attendees also enjoyed live entertainment on the riverbank stage.

NSU’s Presidential Leadership Program (PLP) and chapter of the Kappa Alpha Order supplied volunteers to set up for the dinner and take tickets. PLP participant and newly crowned Lady of the Bracelet, Makenzie Scroggins came by in her PLP t-shirt, tiara and sash to work at the show.

The Natchitoches Classic Car Show is in its 15th year of family fun. The show will be held Saturday, October 2 in downtown Natchitoches. There is no cost to attend. Come to the show to see over 350 cars, ranging from lovingly restored classics to fanciful art cars.
