Saturday, June 24, 2017 was the 11th annual Edmonson Center Car Show and Cruise-In, featuring 92 cars which was a big increase from last year’s show. Thirty-one of those were owned by Edmonson county citizens.
There was no entry fee and car owners were treated to a free meal. Money for this event is raised through an auction, which items are donated by local businesses and a 50/50 raffle. All money raised is put into the resident council trust fund and the residents choose how to spend the funds.
In the past, these funds were used to attend Hot Rods baseball games, Christmas and other entertainment at the center. Approximately $6700 was raised at this year's event where the top 25 cars were awarded along with the top cars in 11 categories.
This year’s best in show was a 1957 ‘Chevy Belair owned by Doc Carlson of Scottsville.
