Local car enthusiasts will have a chance to show off their wheels next month, as Mukilteo Ace Hardware will be holding a car show Aug. 10.

The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mukilteo Ace Hardware store lot.

The store’s first show was held last year, and more than 200 people attended the show, which had about 18 cars on display.

Chantelle Burris, Mukilteo Ace Hardware’s general manager, understands the importance of community events.

“It’s important to support locally-owned businesses,” said Burris. “It’s about people knowing us and us knowing the customers. We have a good relationship with our community.”

Burris also mentioned the car show is a great event for the community where people can hang out and talk.

“(The event) is popular because it’s community driven,” Burris said. “It’s a community store. Customers know each other and they know about the car clubs around town.”

Those who sign up for the car show have a chance to win first and second place prizes.

The first-place winner will receive a Traeger smoker grill. The second-place winner will receive a $100 gift card to the store.

Donna Ramsey, the assistant manager at Mukilteo Ace Hardware, hopes the event will be successful.

“It was a great turnout last year and it was a lot of fun,” said Ramsey. “It’s a good community event. I hope it’s bigger this year.”

Burris hopes to get at least 15 people to sign up for the event.

The event will be moved to a later date if not enough people sign up for the show.

Entering a car in the show and attending the event itself is free. The show is open to any type of car model.
