HURRICANE – Crowds packed the Hurricane Community Center for the 29th annual Hurricane Rotary Easter Car Show on Saturday.
This year’s show had approximately 200 entries. Among the unique vehicles on display were a 1923 Ford Model T, a motorcycle with a custom airbrushed design paying tribute to those lost in 9/11 and Turbinator II, the world’s fastest wheel-driven car.
The show is the Hurricane Valley Rotary Club‘s main fundraising event; car show chairman Jeff Borden said that about 6,000-8,000 people attended Saturday. Attractions included food and vendor booths, games for kids and an ice cream cart selling old-fashioned treats.
The club participates in many service projects in the Washington County area and contributes to Rotary causes around the world, among them eradicating polio and building infrastructure in rural villages in Central America. The club has donated to the Hurricane Community Center, police and parks department, and provided local third graders with dictionaries.
