It’s a classic weekend in Frisco with ‘Vettes and wooden boats

Summit Daily/Eric Drummond

FRISCO ” Corvette enthusiasts will be converging in Frisco on Sunday for the 35th Annual Looking Glass Corvette Association Show n’ Shine car show on Main Street from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Also, the Rocky Mountain Classics will be hosting a display of classic wooden boats at the Frisco Bay Marina on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

More than 550 Corvettes are expected to line Main Street from Madison to Seventh St. Showgoers can expect to see Corvettes from the Front Range and throughout the Rocky Mountain region and other states. Cars from 1953 up to late models will be on display. Cars are judged by class (year, modifications) with criteria specified by the Show n’ Shine committee. The awards ceremony starts at 1 p.m. in the Frisco Historic Park Gazebo.

The event is organized by a volunteer committee of approximately 40 Looking Glass Corvette Association members, chaired this year by Dave Everett, Tom Robben and Roland Tomsick. The Denver-based club has more than 300 members. More information on Vettes on the Rockies can be found at

Main Street will be closed from 6 a.m. until approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday. This is a no-pet event. Bicyclists and skateboarders will be asked to walk their bikes and carry their skateboards through the venue due to the crowds on the streets and to reduce the chance of damaging the cars on display.

The Rocky Mountain Classics launch their event on Friday. The boats will be on display to the public at the Frisco Bay Marina on Saturday with the Frisco boat parade on Saturday at 2 p.m., followed by a rendezvous at the “Glory Hole” on the Dillon side of the lake at 5:30 p.m. The boats will then parade near the Dillon Marina at 6 p.m.
