I can’t believe that we’re already half way through this year… where is the time going?! 

We’ll be starting this week off with our weekly Hot Rod Hangout over at Ricardos.  If you’re new in town, or just haven’t stopped in to see this gathering, come by and check it out!  Come and grab a bite to eat and say Hello!

Then on Friday it’s off to the Best Dam Car Show in Boulder City, Nevada.  There is going to be a car show, food vendors, booths, a family fun zone with a rock wall, bounce house, and more!  Bring your kids and grandkids, there will be plenty of fun to go ’round!  The event is held every Memorial Day Weekend, so the event will start on Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM and will continue on Saturday from 9 AM to 6 PM.  All funds go to the Rotary Club of Boulder City.  Click on the flyer for more details.  (Address for this event is: 999 Colorado Street, Boulder City, Nevada 89005

Veterans Home Fundraiser – Amazing !!!!!

This evening is the Monthly Rebels with a Cause 1112 South Bluff 7 PM

  • First out of the box this morning was the early gates opening at Tuacahn.

Thanks to DATS Trucking, Ernie’s Too, The Desert Rodders of Southern Utah, and the St. George Kiwanis Foundation the Ivins Veterans Home benefit Car Show was knocked out of the park with hundreds and hundreds of spectators, fantastic cars, lots of volunteers, and great vendors. The rising heat was no match for the faithful and hearty souls of Southern Utah.

Desert Cruzin & Staff give a great big thanks to all of those involved and hope to receive some great photos to post in our Memory Lane section….please Email any pictures to monika@steveshotrodgarage.com

  • Next up was the Zion Harley Viet Nam Veterans Fundraiser breakfast & lunch car Show…….Not quite as large as Tuacahn but well worth the view.
  • After that, or during that, was the Utah State Chili Cook-Off Car Show at the Town Square in St. George……We dropped in on this one after Tuacahn and Zion Harley and felt like the outfield children of the corn out there all alone with the baking sun with nothing, and I repeat NOTHING, to make car show people welcome other than a taped off area way far out of the action (what little action there was).
  • We begged off of the Rhino Lining deal out on River Road due to exhaustion and wanted to get a little time off to make Ricardo’s this evening.

Full Speed Ahead for Car Shows This Week

MY LANTA! Has anyone checked out the event calendar for this week?! This ought to be fun! We have so much in store for us starting with our weekly Hot Rod Hangout on Wednesday, and later in the afternoon we’ll have the Sandstone Car Show from 5:30-7PM. 

The fun doesn’t stop there! Be sure to make it out to some of the car shows and show & shines going on this weekend too.  Starting on Saturday at 8AM the gates open to Tuacahn Car Show which begins at 10AM.  If you plan to register your vehicle, click THIS LINK for the registration form and information.  

At 10AM on Saturday we’ll have the Utah State Chili Cook Off where there will be a free Show & Shine, lots of food, soap box car race, and you can even enter your best chili or salsa recipe to win a prize.  

If you can’t make it to either of those events, from 11AM-4PM you can catch the grand opening event for Red Desert Off Road/Line X.  Bring out your jeep, truck, or car for a show & shine and eat all the food you can!  They’ll have a mobile dyno and even a bounce house, so feel free to bring your children/grandchildren along to join in on the fun! 

Once everyone gets a chance to settle down for a couple of hours, there’s EVEN MORE to do!  Saturday evening from 7PM-9PM check out either (or both) Iceberg Cruise-In or Rebels With A Cause Cruise-In 

I’ll ask for everyone’s help again in getting pictures submitted from any of these events.  I’d like to eventually use some of the photos from this year’s events for a project.  The more pictures, the better! 

Speaking of, a special thank you to Tony Lonnett for submitting some photos of last week’s Ricardo’s Hot Rod Hangout! Check out the pics HERE

Remember to click on the flyers for any address information so you don’t get lost!
