Many of the area’s finest classic cars will be on display at Cherokee Casino Tahlequah on Sept. 3, when the 14th annual Cherokee National Holiday Car Show returns to the casino.
The all-ages car show is free to the public and runs from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. when judges award trophies in nearly 40 categories.
“This is always a fun event to host because there is so much excitement about all the great classic cars that overflow our parking lot,” said Rod Fourkiller, Cherokee Casino Tahlequah general manager. “It’s really impressive how good the vehicles are that enter the car show. It makes it a tough decision for the judges, and the car enthusiasts can’t get enough of them. If you love cars, you definitely need to be here that Sunday.”
Categories include stock and modified cars and trucks for each decade, beginning pre-1935 through 2000s. Other categories include Camaro, Mustang, Chevelle and Corvette from multiple decades, and motorcycles with categories for pre-1979 and post-1980.
In addition to category awards, recognition will be given to Best of Show, Best Paint, Best Interior, Chief’s Choice, Speaker’s Choice, Council’s Choice, Casino’s Choice and the Chamber of Commerce’s Choice.
Registration is from 9 – 11 a.m. and costs $20. Members of car clubs who want to park together should arrive together, as parking will be filled as cars arrive. The first 125 entries receive a dash plaque, while every car show participant receives sunglasses, an event shirt and $10 in rewards play.
To conclude the day’s festivities there will be a fireworks show at dusk.
