The Street Rod car show attracts hundreds of locals and non-locals alike who view dozens of extraordinary cars lined up to compete for trophies, or at the very least bragging rights, and, just as importantly, to mingle with friends and neighbors. One of the most popular events of the summer season in Chester, a number of car enthusiasts drive hundreds of miles, some from states outside California, to display their beloved vintage hot rods and classic vehicles. Gosney thought it would be fun again to create unique, one-of-a-kind trophies out of car parts for the winners in the various categories, which were a big hit last year. Kicking off the festivities on Friday night is a Spaghetti Feed to be held at the Mt. Lassen Club, 173 Main St. in Chester, featuring spaghetti and homemade sauce, salad and French bread for $8. Dinner will be served between the hours of 4 and 7 p.m. Event registration will also be available at the club. The day of the car show will feature great music, Lassen Ale Works microbrews and food to satisfy the appetites of those in attendance. Separately, ARPD volunteers will tender a no-host bar serving sangria and margaritas. SideFX will provide this year's musical performance starting at 10 a.m. in Chester Park. Known to many locals, Paisan's Mobile Kitchen will be on hand serving up a variety of great sandwiches and other items for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Once again, organizers have decided to open the Street Rod Extravaganza to an even wider class of automobiles, including tricked out newer model vehicles, Rat Rods and awesome motorcycles. Award categories include 24 merchant trophies plus Best of Show, Viewer's Choice Award, Ladies Choice, Kid's Choice, Most Patriotic, Best Rat Rod, along with a number of honorable mentions. Poker Run & Walk Registered street rodders will, have the opportunity to enter the Poker Run, which involves making a number of stops at various businesses around Lake Almanor and picking playing cards to form a winning hand -- and ironically and somewhat whimsically -- an award for the worst hand, too. Those who choose not to drive around the lake, but want to join in on the competition can enter the Poker Walk instead, also open to the public for $10 per hand, and $5 for each additional hand. Everyone is also encouraged to buy drawing tickets for a 50/50 prize. Kids can participate in an apple-bobbing contest, and try their hand at hula-hoops. According to organizers, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to put together the annual Street Rod Extravaganza, which is largely managed by current ARPD board members Michelle Gosney, Colleen Garrett, Susan Espafia, David Slusher, and Shane Bergmann, plus many community volunteers. If interested in helping out on the day of the event by manning stations to hand out poker chips, serve beverages and food, or to register your ear for the show, call Gosney at 519-3879.
