Ticonderoga A raffle has been added to the list of events at the Ticonderoga Area Car Show.
Sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, the 20th annual car show will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5, in Bicentennial Park.
The raffle, with a $3,000 top prize and a $2,000 second prize, is being added to help raise money for the event and other chamber programs, according to Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director.
Raffle tickets are $10 each and are now on sale at the chamber office on Montcalm Street, at area businesses and by chamber volunteers. Tickets will also be sold at the Ticonderoga Wal-mart July 13. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold. The drawing will be at the car show Aug. 5.
“We suggest getting your tickets early if you would like to participate in the 2012 car show raffle,” Courtright said. “We would greatly appreciate your support as we work to grow the car show and further the goals of the chamber.”
The Ticonderoga Area Car Show will feature 27 classes with awards in each class. It is a judged show and a “SuperWheels Showdown” qualifier.
The first 150 people registered in the show will receive a goody bag and dash plaque.
To enter as a participant there is a $15 pre-registration fee before Aug. 3. Participants who pre-register will be entered into a special drawing for a prize of $100. Those who wish to register as a participant at the gate will be charged a $20 registration fee.
Spectators are free on the day of the show, although donations will be accepted to support the show and the chamber.
Judging will begin at 11 a.m. All vehicles must be on the grounds by 10:45 a.m. or they will not be judged.
During the show there will be food, vendors, a 50/50 raffle, car show raffle and music by Jerry’s Juke Box as well as the Kiwanis Duck Race, a Piston Toss, a Muffler Wrap and a Hoola Hoop contest.
