If you have an antique or unique looking vehicle and you want to help raise money for the Williamsburg Police Department Shop with a Cop program, then you might want to come down to the Kentucky Splash Waterpark Saturday for Cops N Rodders car motorcycle and tractor show.
“We will have cars, motorcycles, antique tractors, anything that looks cool that people will want to look at,” said Williamsburg Deputy Police Chief Jason Caddell, one of the organizers of the event. “There have been a couple of car shows across the country with the name Cops N Rodders. The closest one to here was Lawrenceburg that is kind of where we got the idea.”
The Lawrenceburg car show of the same name is also a fundraiser for that area’s shop with a cop program.
Caddell said that organizers of the Williamsburg show have no idea how much they will make off the event or how many participants will take part.
“I hope that it goes good,” Caddell said. “The problem is there are a lot of car shows in our area. Some people have really good success with them and some people don’t. This was the only open date we could kind of find that works for us plus it is not so cold that people won’t come out.”
Registration begins at 9 a.m. Saturday and the show will take place from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Kentucky Splash Waterpark.
The entry fee is $15 for the first vehicle and $10 for each additional vehicle.
Door prizes and awards will be given.
“I want everybody to come out and look at cars. I think we are going to have some hot dogs for sale and some drinks. It is not a real fancy thing. There might be 20 cars. There might be 150 cars. I’d like to see 150 but we will see how it goes,” Caddell added.
For more information contact Caddell or Brandon Prewitt at (606) 549-6087 or (606) 549-6038.
All proceeds will go towards the Williamsburg Police Department Shop with a Cop program.
Shop with a Cop takes less fortunate children on $100 Christmas shopping sprees at Wal-Mart. Last year 148 children took part.
Caddell said that the car show would hopefully be in addition to the mud bog, which is a timed event for ATV’s and four-wheel drive vehicles that drive through mud-filled pits. The mud bog is also a shop with a cop fundraiser.
“The mud bog is still kind of up in the air. The problem is we don’t have a very good place to host it now,” Caddell noted.
Last year the mud bog was held at the Whitley County Fiscal Court’s industrial site at Savoy.
Caddell noted that the police department is thankful to the county for letting them use the site, but that location is a bit out of the way and the ground tends to be soggy there.
“It makes it a little more muddy than we would like is a good way to put it,” Caddell added.
