Lion’s Club Car Show adds a classic look

The Lion’s Club Car Show took place recently in downtown Brewton.
The car show featured more than 38 different cars that took people back to the good old days of automobiles and hotrods.
Cars lined the street in front of Camp 31 BBQ as far as the eye could see.
Glenn Freeman started the car show over 14 years ago to help generate money for the local Lion’s Club and their charities and it has since grown into what it was this past weekend.
“We have grown over the years and the Lion’s Club does a lot of great things for the community and different charities and it is just fitting that they receive the help from it. We had more cars this year than in years past and everyone really seemed to enjoy it,” Freeman said.
In years past, the parking lot of Camp 31 BBQ has been the home to the car show.
This year, Freeman was allowed to extend that out to the street in front of Camp 31 to allow more exposure and room.
“It really helped to have the show along the street this year. The City of Brewton did not hesitate in allowing the street to close for the car show and it offered more exposure and foot traffic,” Freeman said.
Freeman judged the many cars on display and gave some awards out to the best rides.
Sixteen-year-old, Jada Baggett received the Glen Freeman award for her Mazda.
Baggett saw her first car show award with her very first car after recently reciving her drivers license.
“She was so excited to receive the award along with her grandparents. It was nice to make someone’s day with a special award for a young person,” Freeman said.
