Arbuckle celebrates 140 years with annual car show and BBQ this Sunday

Around 250 vehicles are expected for the 14th annual Arbuckle Car Show and Train Depot BBQ celebration in Downtown Arbuckle. Hosted by the Arbuckle Revitalization Committee, the event benefits the downtown revitalization efforts of the community. The show is scheduled from 10 AM to about 3 PM on Sunday, Oct. 30.

“We have about 125 cars preregistered,” said Arbuckle Car Show volunteer Debbie Charter.

Charter commented that she and many others are praying for good weather. “There is a chance it might rain on Sunday,” said Charter. “We’ve never been rained on.”

While rain might dampen the fun, Charter commented the event is held rain or shine.

New this year, the Knights of Columbus Council #14112 will offer a hearty breakfast starting at 6 AM. Held in the LaVanch Hursh Community Park in Arbuckle, the breakfast will include your choice of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, coffee, and orange juice. The cost is $10 per plate and it is served until 9:30 AM.

Car show registration begins at 8 AM, with a day of show registration of $25.

The event boasts various hot rods, classic cars, antique wonders, and a few show stoppers. The atmosphere will be set as the band Jimmy and the Jets performs some rock’n 50s and 60s music.

“We have cars from all over the place,” said Charter. “Car people love our show.”

A divine feature of the Car Show is the BBQ lunch, celebrating the birth date of the small town.

“The lunch features deliciously barbecued tri-tip, firemen beans, salad, and bread,” said Charter. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children and is served from 11 AM until food is gone.

“The Arbuckle FBLA will provide the water and soda concession, and the dessert booth is being hosted by the Pierce Unified School District Band,” she said.

In addition to food and cars, the organization has assembled some of the best raffle items around.

“We nearly 100 items,” said Arbuckle Car Show Volunteer Peggy Arens. “We have wine, gift baskets, various donated items, and gift certificates.”

This year’s raffle features a pedal tractor from Beeler Tractor.

“People are always impressed by the quality of raffle items we feature,” said Arbuckle Car Show Volunteer Cynthia Peterson.

Peterson commented that raffle tickets are sold for $1 each or six for $5.

Charter emphasized that Car Show t-shirts and sweatshirts will also be for sale.

Looking for more? The Arbuckle Car Show also hosts a vendor fair. Traditionally, a dozen or so local businesses and crafters setup shop and offer a shopper’s emporium of gifts and unique items.

Something for the kids.

The Arbuckle Parks and Recreations District will hold its annual Halloween Costume Parade starting at 11 AM.

“Registration is in front of Alsco-Ace Hardware at 10:30 AM,” said Arbuckle Parks and Recreations Executive Director Mary Grimmer.

The Halloween Costume Parade is open to all ages; however, it is judged based on four categories.

“We have newborns to pre-k, Kindergarten to 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade to 5th Grade, and 6th Grade and up,” said Grimmer. Although no official judging is held, special trinkets and goodies will be awarded to the participants.

Bring the family and head out to the 14th annual Arbuckle Car Show on Sunday, Oct. 30.
