4th UPDATE — Fireball streaks across sky, dazzling observers locally and from B.C. to Northern California
The Cruz-In will be at Cowboy Country, 923 E. First St., and Puerto de Angeles Family Mexican Restaurant, 940 E. First St., beginning at 3 p.m.
It is open to all hot rods, customs, classics, muscle cars and motorcycles.
The entry fee is $10 per car. Raffle tickets are $5 each.
All proceeds will go to high school seniors for scholarships in memory of Darlene Marihugh, a longtime employee of Swain’s General Store in Port Angeles and an avid hot rodder who died Oct. 23, 2005, at the age of 40.
Puerto de Angeles will offer menu specials, and Cowboy Country will conduct an outdoor sale in conjunction with the event.
Wayne “The Peregrine” King will exhibit and “fire off” his restored record-setting 1963 Doss, Clayton and King top-fuel dragster.
More than 115 door prizes donated by area businesses will be given to participants displaying their cars and bikes at the event.
Highlights of the raffle will be a custom-painted and upholstered hot-rod pedal car and a waterfront room at the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles.
Fourteen entries will be picked for special award plaques.
Goodie bags will be given to the first 110 entries.
The event is the sole fundraiser for the Darlene Marihugh Memorial Scholarship.
In addition to the entry fee and raffle, donations also tend to come in, said Ron Wilcox, an organizer.
“If you’ve got a cause and the kids are the recipients of it, people just give,” he said.
Recent Port Angeles High School graduate Kara Lindley received this year’s $2,000 scholarship.
