RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The Rocky Mountain Rebel Car Club is holding its show again this year in Riverton, despite some worries from the club President about cancellations.

Since the club doesn’t require pre-registrations to attend, President Ty Becker said he’s unsure whether numbers will be less this year. Becker said he’s loved car shows since he was a child, and now he has been President of the Rocky Mountain Rebel Car Club for six years, and has been involved for about 12. He said that in years past, the average number of cars in the show was between 150 to 200. However, the Riverton Police Department told Becker they counted about 300 cars downtown with the Friday night cruise last year.

Becker made note that Friday night is usually their biggest night, since there are a lot of people who have project cars they’re working on that they will drag on out for the downtown portion of the car show.

“That’s always been our average, but this year with everything going on. it’s really kind of up in the air what’s going to happen. It could go one of two ways: people are kind of gun-shy to get out or people are ready to get out, we just don’t know. So we’re just glad we’re able to have it, and whatever we get we’ll be happy with,” Becker said.

The parade is on Friday the 17th starting at 6 in the Sutherland’s parking lot on Federal Blvd. No registration is required for the parade, but if you’d like to have a place in the cruise parade, you’ll need to be at Sutherland’s at 5:30pm. The Riverton Police Department will be directing traffic, so if you’re part of the parade, don’t stop for traffic lights. Following is the downtown car show from 6:30-10pm with live music and food vendors available.

The car show will be all day Saturday on the CWC front lawn, and autocross will be held all day Saturday and Sunday in the fine arts center parking lot at CWC. If you wish to participate in autocross, you’ll need to come at 7am Saturday morning to register. You must have a valid driver’s license and current insurance. Helmets are also required, and some loaner helmets are available. Safety checks on the vehicles registered will be from 7-9am Saturday.

The Saturday night fireworks have been cancelled due to fire concerns, but the awards ceremony will be happening Saturday night at 4pm. Autocross racing on Sunday starts at 8am, with a driver’s meeting at 7:30.

The car show is free to the public, but food will be available for purchase from the Marine Corps League and several vendors.
