Whether you have a killer hog you’d like to show off or you just enjoy drooling over other peoples’ projects, the “Rides That Rock” Hot Rods and Harleys Showdown is where it’s at Saturday, June 10.
The rock ‘n roll-themed hot rod/bike show is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at High Desert Harley Davidson, 2310 E. Cinema Drive, Meridian, and is open to all levels of restoration — even rides in progress.
The family-friendly event has tunes, food and a raffle for a 55 Chevy pedal car and a Boise State University rocking chair. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20, and you do not need to be present to win.
Several Idaho airbrush and pinstripe artists will sell garage art signs, license plates, etc., that they will personalize on request. Or bring your own items, such as a helmet, to have personalized. Fees depend on complexity of the design. The artists will also customize bikes and hot rods that register for the show.
There will be 33 award categories — all custom handmade awards. For example, four special customized electric guitars will be presented during the show. And one of those guitars, customized by a local artist, is signed by Ted Nugent (hell yeah, The Nuge) and will be handed over to the owner of the Best Hand Built Traditional Hot Rod.
Spectators pay nothing. But to register your ride, it’s $5 plus a donation for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital like Hot Wheels, stuffed animals, coloring books, small dolls, etc.
