Registration lasts from 8-11:30 a.m., and costs $15 to enter. Come to the Pawnee Prairie Days Car Show and you just might win one of 40 awards!
The following Saturday, June 15, 2019, Midway Trailer Sales is holding its First Annual Car and Tractor Show. Located on 18292 E. Frontage Road in Litchfield, IL, this show includes free admission for both participants and spectators. Registration begins at 8 a.m. for this show, and the awards ceremony will take place at noon. The showrunners encourage interested participants to show their bikes and trucks as well, so this is not only a car-specific show. There’s also a raffle and a vendor who will be selling delicious food and drinks to patrons.
If you’re looking for things to do this summer in Virden, Illinois, the 12th Annual Fred Bitenstine Memorial Car Show will also be held on Saturday, June 15, 2019! Like the Midway Trailer Sales show, registration begins at 8 a.m. and ends at noon, and takes place directly on Route 66 in Virden.
