PRAIRIE CITY - There will be a free buggy ride to transport people between the two parks during the 10th annual Show 'n' Shine car show and third annual art and craft show.

Both events will be held Aug. 6.

"This is the first year that we added antiques to the show," said Sarolta Sperry, who is the president of Talents and Treasures, a local organization that is sponsoring the art show.

Prairie City Antiques is one of six antique dealers that will be at the art show.

"We will have Victorian furniture, antique fishing gear, antique toys, and local branding irons, among other things," said Amy Giandomencio, who operates Prairie City Antiques.

Live music will be performed by the Old Hat Band, three vocalists, two guitar players, and a fiddler throughout the day.

The car show, put on by the Grant County Kruzers, will have live music by the Fabulous Fairlanes.

There will be prizes awarded in 10 classes of cars. Entrants must be over 18 and have proof of registration. The $15 registration fee includes a goody bag, dash plaque, and entry in a poker walk held by local merchants.

The poker walk is for entrants only. They will go to eight local businesses, and at each they will draw a card. The best hand will win $25 and a prize.

The car show will also have a raffle, which is open to everyone.

"We have 84 prizes, and we'll be drawing numbers all day, and posting the winners on a board," Kruzer Sue Smith said.

Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.

"We have a variety of prizes, from jewelry to oil change kits. It's not all car related," Smith said.

A separate raffle will be held just for entrants in the car show. Winners will receive a free stay at one of four bed and breakfast hotels, two of which are in Prairie City.

The car show is from 8 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the city park and the art show is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Depot Park. Admission to both shows and to the concerts is free. Concessions will be available.
