2018 Car Show

2018 Crusin' Into the Next Chapter Car Show

On August 25, over 700 people were entertained by the third annual “Cruisin’ into the Next Chapter” Classic Car and Truck Show and family fun day at the Yolo Branch Library.  The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Yolo Branch Library and the Yolo Library, located at 37750 Sacramento Street in Yolo.

Over 140 classic cars and trucks lined the streets in the town of Yolo.  Most of the entries came from Dunnigan, Zamora, Yolo, and Woodland with one traveling from Southern California and several more from the Central Valley and Bay Area.

Great video of the car show

Matt Casias created a great video (about 20 minutes long) of the car show including aerial shots of every bit of the show, followed by street level video of every car, with wonderful detail of the lowrider bike show at the end -- all to some nice tunes.

This year’s event also featured an expanded youth lowrider bike show that included a competition for youth entries.  First place, second, and third place awards were given in two categories with the People’s Choice award going to Favian Cano, age 15.

The Friends of the Yolo Branch Library would like to thank the community for making this event a success. Over 100 volunteers as well as the County of Yolo, Yolo Fire Protection District, Yolo Blacksmith, Yolo Market, Cache Creek High School, and dozens more generous businesses worked with the Friends and Yolo County Library to make this event special.

Families enjoyed walking among classic cars and trucks, listening to music by Rockwell Sound & Lighting with special guest DJs, viewing antique fire trucks from local fire departments, touring the historic Yolo Blacksmith building, viewing a Yolo Blasting demonstration, and learning about oil and battery recycling from Yolo County Integrated Waste Management.  Kids also enjoyed free face painting and activities at the Yolo Branch Library, including a free book.

All proceeds from this event went to the Friends of the Yolo Branch Library to fund library programs and services for the communities of Yolo, Zamora, Dunnigan and surrounding areas.
