The 2018 Relay For Life Car Show and Craft Festival, which took place Saturday July 28th, had their biggest turnout with 126 registered cars.
Cars, trucks and motorcycles lined the streets and vendors filled up the community center.
Plaques were awarded to the top 40 and trophies were given to the top 16. "It's not about competition, its about coming out, having a good time and raising money for cancer research," said Tommy Stratton, a volunteer and judge at this year's show.
During the event, live music was performed by Vivian Thomas, Andrea Guess, Keith Ray and Colton Kise. "A special thank you to all the music performers today," said event coordinator Richie Jones.
Also inside the Community Center, donated items were sold during a live auction, and in addition, a handmade quilt was raffled, which raised over $800 alone.
"It's a lot of work putting this together, but so very rewarding," said Delores Jones, one of the event coordinators. "Thank you to all our sponsors, the volunteers, vendors, and car owners who helped make this possible. I also want to thank the Edmonson Voice for promoting this event and coming out today."
Over $6000 was raised on Saturday, all of which goes to Relay For Life.
Richie Jones also stated "There is no way we could thank everyone individually for their efforts today. Once again, our community has come together for a great cause."
