The 2016 Show and Shine Car and Bike Show, sponsored by the Vintage Car Club of Minden and the Minden Main Street Program, is set for Saturday, Sept. 10.
Registration is free and is open to all car and bike owners interested in participating in this community event. Participants are urged to pre-register by Sept. 5.

Registration will also be held on-site the day of the show from 7 until 11 a.m. in front of the civic center. No entries will be accepted after 11 a.m.
Boasting the largest trophy presentation in the Ark-La-Tex, the car classes will include antiques, sports and muscle cars, Corvettes, Mustangs, MOPAR class, imports and domestics, trucks, jeeps, street and rat rods.
The motorcycle classes have been expanded to include custom, full, mild and manufactured.
New this year, the car club will feature various craft vendors. The committee is asking that vendors display new, antique or craft items only, especially items of interest to car enthusiasts. No rummage or garage sale items.

There will be plenty of food, drinks and entertainment for the entire family.
