Motor city heads to Gresham
Car enthusiasts flooded downtown Gresham for the ever-popular Rockin' Round the Block car show, which celebrated everything powered by a motor Saturday afternoon Aug. 12.
Restored classic cars and hot rods competed in several different categories during the 19th annual event. There was also live music, food vendors, kids' activities, door prize drawings, awards and dance routines.
Attendees perused a variety of car-related merchandise and had their faces painted.
The streets and parking lots showcased amazing stock and modified custom cars, trucks and motorcycles. In total, 50 prizes were awarded to the most impressive entries.
Proceeds from the show help benefit a scholarship fund for automotive students at Mt. Hood Community College.
Rockin' Round the Block is sponsored by Weston Kia, Advance Auto Parts, Jerry's Custom Paint & Collision, Firestone, Heckmann & Thiemann Motors, Speed's Towing, Gresham Ford, All About Automotive and Mt. Hood Community College.
