The 7th annual La Habra Highlander Car Show is taking place next month. It is a presentation of Band Boosters of La Habra High School, which raises funds for the marching band.
The day is set to feature a remembrance ceremony for the events of 9/11 and Patriots Day. There will also be a drumline and color guard parade, a marching band, and bagpipes. There will be musical entertainment, raffles and food and drink for purchase.
Over 60 vendors are expected to be on hand to sell food and merchandise. Spaces are still available and cost $55 for a 10 x 10-foot booth. For the kids, there will be carnival games and police vehicle and fire truck displays.
Of course, the main draw of the day is the car show. The registration fee is $30 and participants will receive a dash plaque, a T-shirt, and the goodie bag. All types of cars are welcome and they will be competing for prizes in 18 categories, including Best of Show, Best Ford, Best Paint, and Best Hot Rod.
Flyers will likely be distributed around the area, including to nearby Placentia, to attract visitors to this fundraising event.
The La Habra Highlander Car Show will be held at Whittier Blvd. and Idaho Street on September 10 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. For more information, visit the event website.
