65th Annual RGV Livestock Show

Car Show & Shine Event

Sunday March 21, 2004


The Rio Grande Livestock Show held its 65th annual show this year in Mercedes, TX.  Among the festivities and attractions at the event was a car show.  The weather had been in question as to whether or not it would be rainy or if the day of the event would be sunny and clear.  As it turned out, the weather was great and over 150 cars showed up for the show.   Dash plaques were given out to the first 100 cars that registered.  Registration began at 8:00 am and the cars were lining up and ready to sign up.  This year there was no entry fee charged to enter your vehicle in the show and from what we understand and with the turnout that came out they are going to try to continue to keep it free to enter for future years as well.  The cars were parked in the grassy field of the Mercedes High School football stadium that is next to the livestock show grounds.  Awards were given to cars in various classes.  As part of the car show gala as well, the cars were paraded through the livestock show grounds around noon for everyone to enjoy seeing the cars drive through and wave.  Jim Best headed up the event and along with his crew of workers helped to make this yet another successful show.  Ok, enough of the words, lets see some pictures.
