Cars, cars and more cars abound at Cadott show

By Ginna Young

Do you like cars of all makes and models? Then the Cadott Car Show, presented by Anderson Moving, is the place for you.

A new event, the show happens Sunday, Aug. 30, with registration of cars from 11 a.m. to noon, located off State Hwy. 27, by the elementary school and bus shed.

There, stock cars, stock trucks and modified cars from 1900-present, will be on display from noon to 4 p.m., with awards handed out from 4-4:30 p.m. Winners of first, second and third in each class, will take home trophies, including Best in Show (judged by staff) and People’s Choice (judged by spectators).

“I love cars,” said organizer Jake Anderson, who went to a lot of shows last year. “It was fun, it was just people talking and a positive environment.”

The idea for a car show in Cadott, was born and has gained momentum the closer it comes to reality.

“I thought it’d be a really cool opportunity…with everything going on, people wanted something to do,” said Anderson. “Luckily, people were like, let’s do it.”

In the past, Anderson has helped coach Minors, umpired, coached fourth-grade basketball and helped with varsity boys basketball. In doing so, he’s seen a lot of improvements take place to Cadott’s fields.

“It’s nice to see that,” said Anderson.

There is an entrance fee for showing the cars, but spectators enter for free. There will be food and beverages for purchase, furnished by Whispering Pines Golf Course, with proceeds going to support the Cadott Youth Sports program. Hazuga’s True Value in Stanley, is also donating bouncy house activities for the kids.

Anderson says people should be able to social distance easily at an outdoor show, and there will be UTVs available for those who may have trouble walking to see the cars. There will also be a canopy providing shade and beverages will come around on golf carts.

“Make sure everyone comes – kids, grandmas, it’s going to be pretty friendly,” said Anderson.

Music will also play from the ’50s and ’60s, and people are welcome to dress up from those eras.

“It’s one of those events that I want to see everybody there,” said Anderson. “I think it’s going to be great, it’d be nice to have 300-400 people there.”
