Cars focus of Sequim Prairie Nights

SEQUIM — The third Sequim Prairie Nights on Saturday is expected to draw dozens of classic cars and trucks to the downtown.

Larry Perry, Sequim Prairie Nights event organizer, said he anticipates at least 170 classic vehicles this year.

“Downtown Sequim inspires people to come out,” he said.

“It’s a different venue, and this year will be its first international affair with at least six classic cars coming down from Victoria.”

The show will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a non-guided cruise from downtown Sequim out to the Dungeness Spit area and back into Sequim after the show.

Sequim police officers will close the two-block stretch along Washington Street from Sequim Avenue to Third Avenue starting at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

Registration remains ongoing at www.sequim prairienights.org, and entries can register their 1979 or earlier vehicle even on show day from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday.

Advance registration is $25 online or $30 the day of the event.

Proceeds from vehicle registration go to scholarships for students graduating from Sequim High School looking into careers in automotive and construction trades and related computer sciences.

Participants and attendees are encouraged to bring jars of peanut butter for the Price Ford Peanut Butter drive.

Vehicles from 1979 and before will park downtown in front of local businesses for visitors to peruse at their leisure.

Some of the highlights of the show and shine include:

• A 1950 Ford Convertible used in “Happy Days” for Joanie’s car in Season 8, Episode 5 from Dec. 9, 1980.

• A 1966 Chevrolet Corvette “Tanker” recently featured at the Corvette Legends Invitational.

• Alan Thornock’s “VooDoo Child” funny car.

• A salute to veterans with several vintage military vehicles on display along with nonprofit Pennies for Quarters.

Periodic drawings will be held throughout the day. Winners will need to be present to claim their item. Unclaimed items at the end of the day will be subject to additional drawings until a winner is had or held over to the next event in 2020.

The Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club’s Community Quilts program donated a patriotic quilt to support the show’s scholarships.

Raffle tickets cost $5 each and will be available at the show and offered in advance at KSQM’s office, 609 W. Washington St., Suite 17, and In Graphic Detail 175 W. Bell St., through Friday.

Snapshots of the quilt are on the show’s Facebook page.
