A Vietnam War helicopter will be on display; the UH1-C Huey gunship is presented by the Vietnam Helicopter pilots Association. Saturday afternoon Road Test will be playing 50’s and 60s rock and roll. On Sunday, Alexander Rossi, winner of this year’s Indianapolis 500 Race will make an appearance.
Also on Sunday, there will be a Young Gearheads competition, which is intended to give high school students the opportunity to showcase the cars they own and the work they have invested in them.
There will truly be something for everyone. General admission is only $5 for adults, which covers both days, and children under 12 and active military with with ID are admitted free. The Fairground charges $5 for parking.
The Roamin’ Angels Car Club was started 54 years ago in Grass Valley by a group of guys who loved cars and working on them. They also love to share their enthusiasm with anyone who will listen to them. The Roamin Angels are a nonprofit organization and helps support many Nevada County organizations, including Boy Scouts, Bear River High School Band, the Friendship Club, and a scholarship fund for students pursuing interest in automotive-related fields. They also adopt many needy families at Christmas through the Salvation Army, providing household goods as well as toy and clothes.
The show is open 8 a.m.to 4 p.m .on Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
