The Water Festival is coming!

April 23, 2010 by WLKM 

The 54th annual Three Rivers Water Festival will include the popular Classic Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show on the streets of historic downtown Three Rivers on Saturday, June 19th.

Thanks to the support of many generous sponsors and local merchants, there will be awards for the Top 40 cars and trucks and Top 5 motorcycles as judged by owners, the popular “People’s Choice” award, a special “Youth Award” (for owners 25 and under), a “Veterans Award,” plus other special awards. Overall, 50 trophies and special awards will be given to recognize the classics and their owners.

More than 200 cars, trucks and motorcycles are expected to be on display.

Owners planning to show their vehicles will begin arriving for registration at 8 a.m. with judging and award presentations at 2:30 p.m. In addition to all the cars, trucks and motorcycles, the event will also feature a D.J. spinning classic hits from the 60’s. Door prizes for car owners and a raffle will also be available.

A special feature this year will be a showing of the 1968 movie classic “Bullitt”, starring Steve McQueen in one of the greatest car chases of all time through the streets of San Francisco. The movie will be shown at the historic Riviera Theatre at 11a.m. Advance tickets are available to the public at the Chamber office and the theatre for $5 with special reduced pricing available for car show registrants when they check in. Any unsold tickets will be available at the door the day of show. However, the advance purchase is recommended as a “sell-out” is projected.
