30th Annual Atascadero Lake Car Show

Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

The place to be the 3rd Saturday of August was the beautiful Atascadero Lake Park where every year the Mid-State Cruizers host this annual event drawing entries from California as well as neighboring states. Entries are parked among the tree lined grass area adjoining the lake as well as the Charles Paddock Zoo–a mainstay in Atascadero for more than fifty years.

A local DJ kept the tunes going, vendors displayed crafts,  and an engine was raffled which brought in a nice variety of locals…there were even local service groups serving delicious tri-tip sandwiches.

There were also what many of the entries show up for…trophies, many trophies…presented at the end of the show.

…until next year, put the date down.
