La Grande, OR - The 12th Annual Timber Cruiser Car Club's Grande Ronde-A-View Car Show (renamed in 2020 as the La Grande Car Show) started with a free barbeque for participants on Friday night, July 20, 2019.
On Saturday, in historic downtown La Grande, over 150 antique and classic cars from all over Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California and Montana lined Adams Avenue. Th e day was full of many activities for the participants: a raffl e, games, shopping, food, music and visiting with other car enthusiasts. Over thirty-fi ve of those beautiful, outstanding vehicles were presented a trophy at the award ceremony.
Following the car show, many of the cars participated in a Poker Cruise that looped around the scenic Grande Ronde Valley before joining the others for a free dinner.
After dinner all participants were invited to parade their cars through downtown La Grande during the Cruise for Cash where lucky cruisers won cash when their car show number was drawn. Th irty-plus cars also won a special "Cruise Favorite" plaque that was awarded by local merchants.
The weekend came to a conclusion on Sunday with coff ee and donuts followed by another cruise through the gorgeous Grande Ronde Valley and ended with a no-host lunch at a local pizza shop.
Plans are made for another exciting weekend at our 13th Annual La Grande Car Show (name changed from Grande Ronde-A-View Car Show) which will be on July 17-19, 2020.
