Please join us for the 14th Annual event on Sunday August 18, 2013, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Enjoy collector cars, motorcycles, and on-land classic boats at George Rogers Park, classic boats on the Lake at the Lake Oswego Corporation Docks and classic boats, including PT658, at the Foothills Park Docks. A free shuttle, provided by First Student, Inc., will run continuously throughout the Show to all three venues. Admission to all three venues is also free to both car and boat owners and spectators.
Breakfast of Pancakes and Lunch of Hamburgers, or all beef hot dogs, will be provided by the Lake Oswego Lions Club at George Rogers Park, food and beverages will also be available for purchase at The Stickmen at the Lake Oswego Corporation Docks.
Spectators will be able to get a close up view of spectacular cars, motorcycles, and boats and will be able to board and tour PT 658, the only usable PT boat in the world and a member of the Columbia Willamette Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society, a sponsor of the Show.
Other Pre-Show events will be held with the arrival of PT 658 at the Foothills docks on the Willamette on Saturday at 10:00 am. The crew, three who are WWII Veterans, will again be welcomed to the city by the Mayor Kent Studebaker and many other admirers.
At 3:00 pm, our third annual water ski spectacular will be part of the pre-show events. The water ski spectacular will start with six skiers, all on classic wood skis, carrying flags that spell out OSWEGO. Each skier, in vintage-look polka dot swim suits, will circle Lakewood Bay. Other events will include Bob Barnum, an Oswego Heritage Council and Columbia Willamette ACBS Board Member, slalom skiing, Gary Lord and Lita Schiel Grigg recreating their experiences as 1950's Lake Oswego water skiers. Plus the Polka Dot Express Skiers.
The Classic boat parade will start at 4:00 pm on Saturday and will again be led by the Lake Patrol. Last year parties were held around the Lake so guests could enjoy the beautiful sight of 35 classic boats once again cruising the Lake.
The driving force behind this successful community event is the Oswego Heritage Council, a non-profit organization which exists, as its mission statement declares, “to assure and promote the preservation of our history and culture.”
