Car collectors and enthusiasts from across the region will gather in Riverton again this weekend for the annual Rocky Mountain Rebels Car Show and Autocross competition. The festivities are once again part of Riverton’s Rendezvous weekend, which includes the 40th annual hot air balloon rally.
The fun kicks off Friday, July 17th with the annual Friday Night Cruise and parade in Riverton. This year the parade will begin at Sutherland’s on North Federal Boulevard in Riverton and continue toward Main Street. Participants should start meeting about 5:00 p.m., with the parade starting at 6:00 p.m.
Following the parade, the cars park on Main Street for folks to take a closer look. Main will be closed to traffic at that point for the public to check out displays, live music, food vendors, competitions, and much more.
On Saturday, July 18th the car show and autocross competitions begin. Once again, events will be held at Central Wyoming College with the car show on the south lawn and autocross happening in the parking lot west of campus, near Hill Street.
Events will be held all day Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The autocross continues Sunday, July 19th at 8:00 a.m.
The Rocky Mountain Rebels will also be raffling off a vintage Texaco gas pump. Tickets are available at the Friday Night Cruise or during the Car Show Saturday at CWC. The winning ticket will be picked Saturday around 4:00 p.m. during the awards ceremony.
