WHEN: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat., Sept. 28

Gearheads are sure to get their fill this Saturday, Sept. 28, at the 12th annual Fuoco Motor Company Downtown Car Show. There will be examples of antique, classic and muscle cars, plus some motorcycles, too.

“It’s free downtown event!” Downtown Grand Junction spokesman Aaron Hoffman said.

Set to run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Grand Junction’s downtown Main Street will be closed between Third and Seventh streets.

According to Hoffman, Grand Junction residents should expect Main Street to be closed to traffic from 5:30 a.m. to about 4 p.m.

“Main Street will be open for the restaurant crowd later in the evening,” Hoffman said.

A Downtown Grand Junction news release noted that “applications for entry are $30 (and $20 for additional vehicles) and registrations are accepted through the morning of the event. Check in begins on Friday, Sept. 27, from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday morning at 6 a.m. at the Fairfield Inn (225 Main St.).”

Hoffman additionally noted the importance of folks voting for the two People’s Choice awards throughout the duration of the event. Other awards — like the “Vehicle Most Likely to Get a Speeding Ticket,” “Vehicle That Traveled the Most Miles to Attend the Show,” “City of Grand Junction Mayor’s Choice,” and more will be awarded as well.

A booth for voting will be located at Sixth and Main streets, plus folks will be walking through the crowd handing out ballots.

As this is a downtown event, remember to leave your dog at home. A portion of the car show’s proceeds will be donated to HopeWest.
