MOUNT PLEASANT, WI — The annual Mount Pleasant Police car and motorcycle show will have a new home this weekend after organizers say the event has outgrown its previous home.

On Sunday, Sept. 8 2019, the Mount Pleasant Police Department is teaming up with the Case High School Criminal Justice Club and Patriot Club to host their Fifth-Annual Car/Motorcycle show.

In previous years, this event was held at the Kohl’s Department Store lot. However, due to an increase in popularity, it was moved to the Franksville Park located at 9614 Northwestern Ave. in Franksville.

The show begins at noon, and is open to all owners of automobiles and motorcycles, with a donation entry. This event is free to the public.

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. The first 75 participants with a $10 donation will receive a custom dash plaque. Trophies will be awarded for both the car and motorcycle voted best in show.

There will be food trucks from the Franksville Food Truck Fest, music, raffles, and the Franksville Craft Beer Garden on hand for people to enjoy. Proceeds generated from this event will go to a scholarship fund established for high school students interested in furthering their education and to local Veterans.

Since 2015 the Mount Pleasant Police Officer ‘s Association has awarded nine scholarships to students.
