On Saturday, May 30 the Redlands Optimist Club will hold its 24th Annual Car Show and Chili Cook-off at Sylvan Park in Redlands beginning at 8 AM and continuing until 5 PM. The event will feature hundreds of classic and antique cars on display, with contests in a number of divisions, and raffle opportunities for the attendants. There is also a chili cook-off competition, with multiple chefs offering their prize entries for tasting and voting by the audience. Multiple vendors will be on hand providing crafts, specialty foods, and beverages. Beer is available from Budweiser and Ritual Brewing. The Kelly McGuire Band and the Yard Dogs will also play throughout the day.
The Car Show is the major fundraising event for the Redlands Optimists, with 100% of the proceeds going to support the youth activities the club conducts each year, and also to fund the many scholarships the club awards each year to students in the area.
Admission is $5 payable at the gates upon arrival. Children under 12 are allowed to enter without charge.
