Lowrider Bike Show

This year’s event also featured an expanded youth lowrider bike show that included a competition. Members of the Socios and Emperors Bike Clubs participated along with non-affiliated youth. First and second place awards were given in five categories plus a People’s Choice award which went to Isaac Cano, age 12.

Attendees saw classic cars and trucks, listened to music by the Penny Ante Band and Rockwell Sound & Lighting with special guest DJs, viewed antique fire trucks from local fire departments, toured the historic Yolo Blacksmith building, looked at a display of antique tractors and gas engines, and visited information tables from the Yolo County Integrated Waste Management and Yolo County 2020 Census Committee. Kids also enjoyed free face painting and other activities at the Yolo Branch Library, including a free book.

The Friends of the Yolo Branch Library want 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 the Yolo County Library to make this event special. All proceeds from the event will fund programs and services at the Yolo Branch Library, which serves the communities of Yolo, Zamora, Dunnigan and surrounding areas.
