Lake Charles Auto Show,
Swap Meet to be May 12

Lake Charles State Park will host its annual Auto Show and Swap Meet on Saturday, May 12, at the park, which is located on Highway 25, near Powhatan. Activities begin at 10 a.m.

Lake Charles would like to invite everyone out to the park for the biggest day of the year, Phil Houston, park interpreter, said.

"Lake Charles Auto Show and Swap Meet, formerly known as LakeFest, will be packed with fun all day long," Houston said. "There will be rows and rows of antique, vintage cars and trucks, along with special interest vehicles."

Also this year there will be a swap meet where individuals can trade cars and parts. Prizes will be awarded in different categories throughout the day. Over 100 trophies will be given away.

"If you are a car enthusiast, this is an event you do not want to miss," Houston said.

"But if automobiles aren't your thing, Lake Charles has got you covered," Houston added. "In addition to the auto activities, there will be an entertainment stage for you to enjoy."

A performance by the Gateway Cloggers is planned along with other entertainment.

There will also be activities, such as turtle races, a washer toss tournament and Nature Center activities, for kids and the young at heart.

The American Red Cross will also be on hand taking blood donations.

Also planned is a Dutch oven cookoff. Registration fee for the cookoff is $10 and individuals can contact the Visitor's Center at 870-878-6595 to register. Registration must be complete before 9 a.m. on the day of the cookoff.

Booth spaces are also available for rent for exhibitors. Non-electric booths are $20 and electric booths are $25. Booth reservations can be made by calling the Visitor's Center.

Swap meet spaces are also available for $20 and can be reserved by calling the Visitor's Center. Individuals can also register for a swap meet booth at the gate between 7 and 9 a.m.

Sponsors of the event include: Bryan Funeral Home, Barton's of Walnut Ridge, The Prescription House, Bank of Cave City, Blevins Tinker Shop, Foothills Home Entertainment, Eagan Manufacturing and House-Gregg Funeral Home.
