Throttle Jockeys Car Show now getting set up, Prairie Chic open until 6 p.m.

The Throttle Jockeys Car Club began setting up their annual car show downtown earlier this morning. The first show in 2012 started out as the city's 125th birthday celebration, held out at the Herington Regional Airport. In 2013, the Throttle Jockeys continued the event, still holding it at our local airport. Today, the car show aspect of the event is downtown on Broadway Street, even right in front of our store! How fitting that we offer vintage and antique items to area shoppers, because this year's car show is only open to 1979 and older vehicles. It's really neat how that works out, isn't it?
Here's the view of the 10 block of South Broadway, with the announcer stand shown on the right and our storefront shown on the left. We'll be easy to find, at 9 S. Broadway St., just north of the car show registration booth at Day Street and Broadway Street.
Farther down, the vendors are set up outside the chamber office, at 106 N. Broadway. This is the view looking south earlier this morning.
The Tri-County Area Chamber of Commerce is serving coffee and serving as the vendor liaison for the Throttle Jockeys. Related to that, Prairie Chic Handcrafts & Antiques is now a member of our local chamber! 

Come on down to the third annual Herington car show, this year being held in our downtown area. Awards will be announced around noon, and then drag races will be held out at the airport from 1-5 p.m. Our store will be open until 6 p.m., so after the classic cars have headed to the airport, residents are most welcome to come on in to the downtown area and do some shopping in our new store!

If you have any questions, feel free to call the store at 785-258-8004 or Stephanie's cell phone at 785-571-3955.
