Prescott Valley needs more family events, concluded residents Britt Jones and Tim Miller. So, they're starting one. The First Annual Classic Car Show - featuring nearly 200 vintage vehicles - and family fun day takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 17, at Home Depot.

Miller, the store's manager, and Jones, its At-Home Services specialist, said they feel that other than Prescott Valley Days, the July Fourth Event and the Festival of Lights during the holidays, the town does not have enough opportunities for the community at large to come together and meet its neighbors.

Why classic cars?

"Some of the younger kids don't know what a classic car is, so we want to show them," Jones said.

A number of local classic car groups will bring their lovingly tended "babies" to the show, and gladly tell spectators about them. The Tri-City Knights even have planned a "cruise-in."

Miller and Jones have purchased three huge trophies for the show. Only classic car owners cast votes for the 4-foot-tall first place participant trophy. But spectators choose the second- and third-place people's choice awards.

They'll have lots of raffle prizes, hot dogs and treats, along with several projects and workshops for the whole family to enjoy.

There's no entrance fee, but the organizers ask for people to bring non-perishable items for the Yavapai Food Bank to replenish its much-depleted shelves.

Many local businesses have donated to the event, among them Liberty Kia, Kohl's, Lamb Chevrolet, Yavapai Race Track, Tire Liquidators, and more, Miller said.

They deliberately planned for the event to be away from their large selling weekend on Memorial Day.

And they chose the food bank this year, but likely will choose another non-profit next year.

"We've done tons of veteran's projects away from the store, but this is a way to invite people into 'our house,'" Jones said, "to bring people together for a day of fun."

Home Depot is at 5500 E. State route 69. Phone 928-777-2400.
