he Owens Valley Cruisers Fall Colors Car Show returns to Bishop Saturday and the Bishop Lions Club will be on hand serving its semi-world-famous pancakes amidst the classic cars.
The Owens Valley Cruisers, headed by Ken Abbott and Doug Clair, indicate local classics will be shined and shown in the City Park, along with a collection of out-of-town chromed beauties from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Cruisers, a local non-profit car club, have chosen the City Park this year for the open air environment and show-goers’ ability to walk in shady comfort while admiring the metal monsters.
Cars will enter the rear of the park beginning at 7 a.m. No pre-registration is required and those interested can register the morning of the event.
The Cruisers have invited the Bishop Lions Club annually to present its pancake breakfast as part of the event and the two go together wonderfully, well, like pancakes and melting butter and syrup.
The Bishop Lions Club will be serving breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Slated for the first time in the park for perhaps more than eight years, according to 2021-2022 Lions Club President Stan Smith and event co-chairs Bob Winzenread and Ron Stone, the breakfast menu will include all-you-can-eat pancakes for $8 per adult, and children 5 and younger will be served free. The menu includes pancakes, butter, syrup (sugary or sugar-free), utensils and plates, orange juice and coffee, and “the most delicious sausage available west of the Pedernales River from the grill of Lion Bruce Kingsbury,” according to the Lions Club.
Cost of entry into the show is $40 and judging will be conducted by the Owens Valley Cruisers. Awards will be presented at 3 p.m.
