Oroville car season begins

— The city’s car show season gets its official start with a show on Saturday, May 11, at Prince’s Warehouse, 1412 Ironwood St.

This year’s car show is being organized by Josh Brown as a senior project. The event has traditionally attracted car owners and enthusiasts from both sides of the border.

Cruise nights are planned for June through September at downtown Oroville locations.

They are family friendly events to enjoy cars and raise the public profile of the city, as well as provide an economic boost to the downtown businesses that cater to event visitors.

The first cruise night of the summer will be at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 22, starting at F.B.’s Family Grill, 1518 Main St., and ending at Prince’s Warehouse.

A cruise night will be scheduled in conjunction with National Collector Car Appreciation Day, on July 13, and cruises on Aug. 17 and Sept. 14.

Cruise nights will go on rain or shine.

“A free car wash from Mother Nature is part of the benefit of enjoying an automobile,” organizer Lee Chapman said.
