McPHERSON, KAN. – The McPherson College C.A.R.S. Club has announced it will host its annual car show on Saturday, May 1 at the campus. Last year’s event was canceled due to the pandemic.
The event will be open to the public; however, vehicle registration will be limited to current students, faculty and staff, and alumni. The student-run event has been held each year since 1999.
“Traditionally, this is something our students and our friends in the car community look forward to each year,” Chris Paulsen, faculty advisor of the event, said. “We are happy that we can host a scaled-back version this year and look forward to seeing some of our favorite cars on display.”
Although weekend activities associated with the car show in the past, such as a Cruise-in and Evening with AR dinner, will not happen this year, organizers are planning weekend activities for the students. Past shows have attracted more than 400 cars, displayed a wide variety of featured cars, and hosted special guests.
Those attending the campus event will be expected to follow the college’s health and safety protocol for outdoor gatherings requiring a facemask.
