Car Show is a big draw


September 4, 2019


WHEELS WITH APPEAL: The Bickleton Car Show was last weekend, and it drew cars, trucks, and motorcycles from near and far, about 140 of them altogether. Some came from as far as Olumpia and Gresham. Barbara Clark reports the event probably drew the largest crowd ever, enjoying the beautiful weather.

About 140 classic cars, trucks and motorcycles competed in the 12th annual Bickleton Car Show and Flea Market this weekend. Market Street was closed for the show cars and a detour was set up for through traffic. The whole town was filled with some of the shiniest and prettiest cars to be seen. All types of autos and anything with a motor was in the show.

There were 18 classes with three places per class this year. Lots of door prizes were drawn, along with a raffle and a 50/50 drawing. The Rebekah ladies sold out their delicious pies, and the vendors filled the Grange Hall and parking lot. We have to say that a good time was had by all and probably the largest crowd of attendees with the beautiful day. Cars that came the furthest were from Olympia, Washington, and Gresham, Oregon.

The car show was sponsored by the Central Washington Studebaker Drivers Club and the Alder Creek Pioneer Carousel Museum. The car show has been a 12-year project of David and Audrey Haynes of Bickleton, who collect classic cars and enjoy attending some of the shows in the northwest throughout the summer. Thanks to their expertise, the show is organized each year and is greatly appreciated by the Pioneer Museum. Due to the hard work of the Haynes' and that of the members of the Studebaker Club and the Pioneer Museum, it was again a success.
