The weather was almost 20 degrees cooler than that of the first Marshall Democrat-News Car Show in 2011, and it was overcast Saturday, Oct. 6.

That didn't seem to matter much, as fans of show cars, trucks and motorcycles flocked to the Marshall square to see a lineup of vehicles that stretched for two blocks along North Street and for nearly a block on Lafayette Avenue.

Sisters Michelle and Madison Wyatt were among the youngsters who accompanied their parents to the event.

What did they like about the car show?

"To see these cool trucks and cars," Michelle said. "Those two cars, they let us get in, and my mom took pictures."

"It's just been a real fun day for us," Madison said.

Kids also could play in a bounce house sponsored by Marshall Cinema or get their faces painted by members of the Marshall High School Art Club.

In addition to providing local families with an entertaining weekend event to attend, the show accomplished another of the sponsor's main goals, too, according to MDN Publisher Shelly Arth.

"One of our goals for the show has always been to bring people to Marshall," she said. "We had numerous out-of-county residents attending the show and participating with attendance over 1,500. We appreciate all the local support we received from event co-sponsors, local car and motorcycle participants and those attending the show."

In addition to the lineup of vintage vehicles, event sponsor John Rector Motors had on display 2013 models.

At the end of the show, just prior to the presentation of show awards, a number of prizes were given to patrons who registered during the day.

Stanley Sparks of Marshall won the 50-inch TV sponsored by Silverthorn's Furniture and Appliances.

Reaching the pedals was a problem, but otherwise, Matthew Cortes, 6, of Marshall, was ready to hit the road in Gary King's 1998 Volkwagen Rail Buggy. Matthew was at the MDN Car and Motorcycle Show with his mother, Cindy Cortes.

Brian Taylor and Mary Hoecker each won a shirt from Jerry's Menswear. Debbie Allison won hand-embroidered tea towels sponsored by Mills Motors, and Dennis Register won a vehicle jump starter, also sponsored by Mills Motors. Ronnie Bowman won four tickets to the Nov. 17 Mizzou football game, sponsored by the MDN.

Gary Arth of Marshall won the 50/50 raffle. The other half of the proceeds will be donated to Marshall Food Pantry.

Porter Maher helped draw the winning tickets for the drawings.

The show also helped bring people to Market on the Square, Marshall's farmers' market. The market, which had planned to close at the end of September, stayed open one more week.

Market Vice President Terry Aldridge, a produce vendor, said he sold nearly all his goods, and he noted that Gary and Martha Self, who sell baked goods, sold everything they brought.

Why didn't the newspaper put anything in the paper on the Dice Run which was also held on Saturday?
