Marco Kiwanis Car Show ready to amaze
The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island doesn't hold your average car show.
It will host it ninth annual event, buoyed by the club's largest turnout of 186 cars in 2012.
Kiwanian John DeRosa expects another record-breaking number of entries on Feb. 17 on Marco Island Healthcare Center property, at the corner of San Marco Road and South Heathwood Drive. The show will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"You will get to see some of Southwest Florida's fastest, oldest, most powerful and unique cars," DeRosa said.
And at a good value at only $5 a person and children under 12 free, he said.
It is expected there will be a similar flavor in cars, from the early 1930's, classic cars of the 1960's and 70's, with featured autos including Corvettes, Porches and more.
"There will be trophies awarded in 20 different classes and the winners will be selected by you, the attendees," DeRosa said.
Also, entertainment on hand includes the Marco Island Academy Guitarists, the Junior Marco Players and DJ Steve Reynolds.
The Italian American Club of Marco Island will sell homemade lemonade and other food items.
Kiwanians will serve gourmet hot dogs, hamburgers and sausages, accompanied by beverages. There will again be the popular $6 table, with even better items than last year, DeRosa guarantees.
Proceeds from the event go to various children's programs supported by Kiwanis Club.
