Unique Car Show set for Sunday at Point Gratiot
For those in the area with a hot rod or a sick hog they want to show off to the world, a local event sponsored by the Unique Car Club will give one the opportunity to do just that.
The Car and Bike Show, presented by the Unique Car Club, will take place at the Large Pavilion at Point Gratiot on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
The Unique Car Club recently took first place at the Puetro Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of Western New York in Buffalo.
Juan Rivera, founder of the Unique Car Club, talked about the event briefly to the OBSERVER. “We want people to see what the car scene is all about,” said Rivera of the Car and Bike Show. “We want the community to see what we do.”
For vehicles to enter the competition, there will be a $15 entry fee. There will also be car limbo and 50/50 raffles.
There will be prizes for first place, second place and third place in a number of different categories of both cars and bikes, including: first group to get there, best male ride, best female ride, biggest crew, who drove the farthest, oldest, newest, two-door, four-door, convertibles, cleanest ride, nicest bike, as well as varying specific year categories.
“The event is for the community,” Rivera also stated of the Car and Bike Show. “We are going to have bookbags for kids who attend.”
The event is brand new to the community, one of a kind in terms of activities and events and promises to be a unique experience for all who attend.
“It’s about bringing people into the city,” said Fourth Ward Councilman Mike Civiletto at a recent meeting of the Dunkirk City Common Council, of the event. “The proceeds from the entrance fees are all going to be donated to the Dunkirk Police Department for youth education and equipment.”
Also back by popular demand will be Majestic Sound, performing at the Car and Bike Show. Majestic Sound is described as a band having the styles of merengue, bachata, salsa and reggaeton sounds.
