The Liberty Street Rods will have their 25th Annual Rod Run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 22 on the Winfield carnival grounds.

"The Liberty Street Rods club members really love their cars and enjoy showing them off. This event is a great way to do exactly that, but the show is about much more than the vehicles. It is about community," said club member Joe Pekala. "This is our way of supporting the Winfield volunteer fire company, donating some of the proceeds to needy local charities, and providing a few scholarships to young adults that are planning on a career in the automotive industry."


Pekala said, "We encourage everyone to come out and help us support these worthwhile causes. I guarantee you will see some really cool rides and have a great time at this family-friendly event."

Featured will be pre-1973 rods, customs, antique, street machines, muscle cars and classics.

There will be Special Truck, Special Engine, Lady Rodder and Kathy Bowers awards.

The Kathy Bowers Award is presented in memory of the late wife of Liberty Street Rods member Jerry Bowers.

Registration is $15 per adult, $25 for two adults and $8 for children 12 and younger. There is a $2 spectator fee.

Participant registration includes a coffee and pancake breakfast and a fried chicken lunch in the air-conditioned dining hall, door prizes and games for all ages.

Goody bags with dash plaques will be given to the first 250 cars, and there will be awards for the top 40 cars.

Spectators may enjoy a variety of food and drinks available for purchase on the grounds.

Vendors will also be in attendance, selling a variety of items.

This event will be held rain or shine.

Weather permitting, the Winfield Safety House will be on display from 9 to 11 a.m. to teach home fire safety lessons to those in second grade or older.

At night, they have worship time and break-out sessions to talk with others, from all over the United States, about what they learned.
