The same folks who brought you the hugely successful Santee Street Fair are at it again. On Saturday, October 9, the Santee Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the first annual Santee Car Show and Festival. The event will take place in the same location as the Street Fair – on Riverview Parkway, just east of Santee Trolley Center. There will be over 200 cars, trucks, hot rods, motorcycles, and other vehicles, along with music and other entertainment, and a Beer and Wine Garden. The show has spaces for 150 vendors, but these are going quickly, as are the spaces for show cars.
The Santee Car Show will not only spotlight local businesses and some of the great cars in the region, but will also help raise funds for Santee Santas, a local organization that helps support struggling families in the community, and the Santee Food Bank. Organizers are encouraging everyone who attends to bring non-perishable food to donate to these two great groups. The fun starts at 9:00 am and lasts until 5:00 pm. For more information on car or vendor space check out the links at the end.
These pictures show a few of the cars that took part in the Italia Ristorante Car Show in January. Will some of them be in the Santee Car Show? You’ll have to come down October 9 to find out.
