Registration starts at 8 a.m. on the day of the event.

There will be limited dash plaques and multiple trophies given out to participants.

In addition to the car show, the Franksville Craft Beer Garden (FCBG) will be open for business.

There will be food trucks, raffles, music with DJ Tim, and even a Kids Power Wheel Race.

Children who are 7 years old and younger can bring their own battery-powered power wheels to ride and take part in the race.

“A special congratulations goes to our longtime friends with MM&E BBQ. This will be their last event serving food ever! Thanks for the great years, Mrnak Family,” says MPPD.

Proceeds go towards scholarships

Proceeds generated from this event will go to a scholarship fund established for high school students interested in furthering their education.

In addition, money will go to the Band of Blue. This organization helps families of fallen officers move forward by coming together.

Since 2015 the Mount Pleasant Police Officers’ Association has awarded $26,000 in scholarships (23) and given back $13,700 to local non-profit organizations.
