As you should know by now, the Mountain Mania Car Show has been turned over to the leadership of the Buena Vista Optimist Club. In keeping with the mission of the Optimist Club, the Mountain Mania Car Show is one of the biggest fund raisers for the Club to fulfill the needs of the children of Buena Vista.
The plan is to have the car show on July 5th (Sunday). We will be less likely to be competing against any other Colorado Car Shows that day. It also gives visitors more of the Buena Vista Traditions to take part in over the 4th of July weekend.
We will be bringing in probably the very best Blues Band for the entertainment for the Car Show. Maynard Mills and his Blues Band will be preforming from about 10:00 to 10:30 until 2:00 from the Denver area. They are incredible and give back any energy they get from our crowd.
We will be having several different trophies this year than in the past. Instead of just having the best of each decade trophies for 1920’s and older, through 1970’s and newer, we are adding Best Original and Best Modified for each of those Decades.
We will be adding a Mayor’s Choice Trophy as well as the Police Chiefs and Fire Chiefs Choice Trophies.
We will be having the 50/50 drawing again with the chance to not only win half the funds collected with this drawing but we discovered last year that if we sell a length of tickets to the participants for only $20 that is as long as your classic cars, we increase the chances of you winning by a bunch.
There has been over 120 cars in the past two Mountain Mania Car Shows. And we are working to make this years Mountain Mania Car Show even bigger.
All proceeds from the Car Show will be staying here in Buena Vista for the use of the children of the town of Buena Vista through the B.V. Optimist Club.
