Saturday, June 1 is the 5th Annual Dallas County Sheriff’s Special Olympics All-Wheel Show to be held at the Adel Courthouse Square. The show benefits Special Olympics Iowa athletes for athletic training and competition.
Pre-registration is $15 for the first car and $5 for every car after that (per owner). People who pre-register also receive a T-shirt the day of the show. Registration the day of the event is $15. The show is different from a lot of "car shows" in that it invites any vehicle with wheels on it from classic cars to trucks to motorcycles to antique tractors.
Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 cars that register for the event. Participants choose the top 20 cars. Awards are given for Best of Show, Most Likely to be Stopped by a Cop, Bad Bike, Long Distance and Special Olympics Athlete Choice.
Last year, 128 participants were in the show, mostly motorcycles and classic cars. The Long Distance award goes to the person who traveled the farthest to attend the show. In the past, people have come from Mount Pleasant and Spencer.
Registration is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Judging will take place from 1 to 2 p.m., with awards presented at 2:30 p.m.
