Arbuckle Car Show a Success!

WPR - 2013 - ARC Car ShowFor the eleventh consecutive year, the Arbuckle Revitalization Committee held its Annual Car Show and Train Depot Barbecue, in downtown Arbuckle on Sunday, October 27th, 2013.

With nearly 250 hot rods, vintage trucks, and classic cars came in just about every imaginable color, style and detail from all around the west coast.

A beautiful sunny autumn day greeted the spectators as they were entertained by Jimmy and the Jets, bringing back memories from classic hits from the 1950’s to the 70’s.

In addition to the cars, spectators browsed and shopped through the dozen or-so vendors offering homemade crafts, baked goods and gift items.

Sunday’s car show also featured a children’s Halloween parade were dozens of children of all ages lined up in their costumes, paraded down 5th street at a chance to win a prize.

Year after year, car show participants and spectators return to the event celebrating a town’s heritage. In 1875, the construction of the Northern Railroad in the Sacramento Valley was underway. The town of College City decided to opt-out of having the railroad travel through its town. Tacitus Arbuckle saw an opportunity and agreed to have the railway constructed through his ranch. Tacitus then sold property rights, and the train depot was built – the town of Arbuckle was then born.

The Tri-tip barbecue, as always, was a mouthwatering success as over 700 feasted on the hearty meal.

The Arbuckle Revitalization Committee wishes to extend ‘many thanks’ to the participants, spectators, volunteers, and sponsors of the event.

Founded in 2002, the Arbuckle Revitalization Committee was formed by a group of citizens who had a vision to refresh, restore, and revitalize business and community pride in the town of Arbuckle. The Arbuckle Revitalization Committee has completed several projects throughout the town of Arbuckle that include the construction of two downtown parks, graffiti abatement, and town cleanup; in addition the organization is looking at the opportunity to restore the historic downtown Arbuckle Train Depot.
