Rockin’ Robin’s Cafe will hold its 7th annual car and truck show from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in downtown Booneville.
The show will be held along Broadway and Second Street with the Broadway blocked off from Main to Second and Second blocked off from Broadway to the entrance of the First Western Bank parking lot.
Gillett launched the car show in 2013 because it works hand-in-hand with the theme of her restaurant and gift shop, located at 266 North Broadway. Rockin’ Robin’s features a checkerboard motif inside that hearkens to the 1950s.
The charities beneficiaries this year are Arkansas Children’s Hospital, a military group, and trade school scholarships for Booneville and Magazine students.
Plaques will be awarded to owners of the top 20 vehicles through participant voting. There are two “best of show” awards for which there will be a plaque and a cash prize with one being determined by participant voting and the other by spectator voting. There will also be door prizes during the day for the participants and a 50/50 drawing.
There have been as many as 52 vehicles in the show.
Besides the automobiles, spectators can take part in various games including a hula hoop and a dance contest. Other attractions will include craft booths and a large obstacle couse bounce around for kids, which is free.
