Benefit car show cruises into downtown Monument

Posted

Once again the streets of historic downtown Monument will be lined up with cars of all makes and models when the annual Tri-Lakes Cruisers Benefit Car Show rolls into town in June.

The annual car show is in its 12th year and will take place on June 9. Proceeds from the car show benefit Tri-Lakes Cares. The Tri-Lakes Cruisers have raised more than $22,000 over the past 11 years for TLC and other local charities.

The car show will feature trucks and cars of all makes and models including vintage cars, mustangs, corvettes and Camaros and there will even be displays from the Tri-Lakes Fire Protection District and the Monument Police Department. Several of the Tri-Lakes Cruiser Car Club members will have their cars on display as well as non-members. Anyone who wants to enter the car in the show must pay a $20 pre-registration fee. The cost goes up to $25 the day of the car show.

Participants will receive a free breakfast from the Coffee Cup Café the morning of the car show at Si Sibell’s barn.

“The more cars the more Tri-Lakes Cares benefits,” said Dale Schendzielos, secretary/treasurer of Tri-Lakes Cruisers.

Trophies and prizes from local businesses will be given out to the winners. Attendees can vote on their favorite cars. There will also be music and food vendors and the United States Air Force Academy live falcon mascots will be on hand.

The cars will line up on Front and Second Streets up to Jefferson Street and there will be some located on a portion of Washington Street.

The car show will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 9 and is free.

“It’s to show people different cars from different years,” Schendzielos added.
