Cars of all persuasions of course take the spotlight, but there are plenty of other attractions attached to the annual Kiwanis car show set for Feb. 14 at the Marco Healthcare Center.

Those attractions include entertainment (local school band, cheerleaders, Celtic Sprit Irish Dancers), food (hamburgers, hot dogs and Italian sausage – as well as Zeppoles (fried doughnuts) made by the island’s Italian American Club), MC Steve Reynolds, custom jewelry on sale and also the age-old tradition of people watching.

Organizer John DeRosa said close to 200 cars were on display last year, and that more space has been added this year to accommodate models ranging from classic to muscle, and from kit to custom.

Show hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with an admission fee of $5 (children under 12 free).

DeRosa said the show is put on by the Kiwanis Club, which does “many wonderful things for children, from scholarships to computer donations.”

Car owners who believe their vehicles would merit being featured in the show should call DeRosa at 272-0816 to check for space availability. Exhibiting is free, and trophies will be awarded in 20 classes.
