This Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m. is Frazier Park’s big block party and Memorial Day Parade

By Susanne Green—The Frazier Mountain Car Club expects 200 classic vehicles for this year’s Ridge Route Run car show, Saturday, May 24, 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Entry to the event is free, but FMCC raises funds from exhibitors to give food and donations to local charities and schools. The show has grown larger each year since it began in 2009, and 250 flags will be placed along Frazier Mountain Park Road on Friday to raise the Memorial Day spirit.

Registration: Registration of cars is 7–9:30 a.m. on Mt. Pinos Way in downtown Frazier Park. Day-of-show registration to exhibit a car is $35, plus three non-perishable food items. There is no fee to attend and enjoy the fun.

Live Music and Dance: In The Wings’ performance dance team offers four shows at 10, 10:30, 11 and 11:30 a.m. on the center stage in front of La Sierra Mexican Restaurant. They alternate with music performances by popular band, YesterYear, which will be playing 9 a.m.–2 p.m.

The Veterans’ Parade will begin at noon. This year a 1960s military tank will be part of the lineup.
Stuff the Truck: The public is invited to bring food donations of non-perishable goods that can be packed into the bed of a classic Ford pickup. The donations will be given to the Family Resource Center food bank.
