Downtown Natchitoches was filled with several thousand visitors as the 15th annual Natchitoches Classic Car Show, put on by the Historic Downtown Business Association, was held October 2. The event featured something for every automotive taste as the show featured 300 cars ranging from all original parts, to lovingly restored, to imaginatively configured art cars.
Top-notch live musical entertainment could be found throughout the day on the downtown riverbank stage. Boy Scout Troops 60 and 80 were on hand selling fundraiser popcorn, while the NCHS FFA sold cold drinks and snacks. Miss Merry Christmas and the Belles were on hand to present awards at the show’s conclusion. Events such as the annual Classic Car Show are part and parcel of what makes life in our community special.
The Natchitoches Car Show has grown over the past 15 years into one of the largest and most eagerly awaited events held in the city as well as a popular destination for antique car aficionados. Just how popular the Car Show has become may be seen with a dedicated couple from Joplin, MO who have brought their 1957 Jeep Willys Jeepster Wagon to each show for the past 10 years.
