10th Anniversary Car Show dazzles, sizzles

0

In spite of the heat wave that descended upon Southern California last weekend, organizers, participants and spectators helped make the 10th anniversary Canyon Lake Car Show another successful event. According to Car Club President Joe Landin, it was a “Fiesta Day crowd even with the heat.” The Lodge lounge was busy all day, with overflow crowds served from portable bars outside.

There were approximately 265 cars and trucks in the show,. with several photographers sending photos of their favorites to The Friday Flyer. More pictures can be seen on Page B-2 and at fridayflyer.com.
