Graham Cars and Stars announce winners
Graham Cars and Stars released a comprehensive list of the winners from their ninth annual car show held Aug. 3 on the downtown square.
This was the first time the event was held in August after severe weather postponed the original April 13 date.
The Texas Bluesmen, a Blues Brothers tribute band performed throughout the day. The event also featured cool-down stations, vendors, food vendors, non-profit organization booths, peddle car cruise and a kids’ zone with child-friendly activities.
Following the show was a car cruise, which began on Fourth St. turned on Hwy. 67 onto U.S. 380 and turned back onto 4th St. Cars continued to make the loop before coming to an end at the Graham Drive-In movie theater for a showing of “The Lion King.”
For the first time ever, there was a burnout contest, which involves the practice of keeping a vehicle stationary and spinning its wheels causing the tires to heat up and smoke due to friction. The contest was hosted by the Graham Police Department and all proceeds benefited the family of police chaplain Gary Tull, who died in June after battling leukemia.
