LOGAN UTAH: A 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle owned by Jeremyah Porter was awarded People’s Choice in the Lee’s Father’s Day Car Show on Saturday.

Among the usual favorite activities of face painting, putting green, basketball shooting, live music, and trampoline athletic demos, the 5th annual car show also celebrated the Inaugural Art Gallery sponsored by Michaels and Little Bloomsbury Foundation. The Foundation is host of the Annual Little Bloomsbury Art & Music Festival, UNESCO World Heritage Chinese Water Garden Reenactment Project, and Chinese arts and humanities summer workshops, all of which, like the Lee’s Father’s Day Car Show, are free and open to all ages.
Winners of the children and youth division are as follows: First prize: Zoe Smith, 11, of Logan; second prize: Carter Dearden, 11, of Layton; third prize: Olivia Wiley, 3, of Logan. The top prize in the adult division went to Jake Stites of Payson. Prizes include one free class in Michael's “Passport to Imagination” summer program and one free set of “Bunch O Balloons” from Lee’s Marketplace. All Lee’s Car Show Art Gallery coloring and drawing entries will be on display throughout the summer at Little Bloomsbury Art Gallery located at 181 N. 200 E., Logan, where the teepee is.
Lee’s Store Director Landon Wiley, mastermind behind the Lee’s Father’s Day Car Show which started five years ago, has a vision for the community event to become a Father’s Day must-see tradition for friends and families. “Given the support we received from Michaels and Little Bloomsbury Foundation in the Inaugural Car Show Art Gallery which received more than 70 entries in sidewalk art, drawing, and coloring combined, we can say that there is "something for everyone” at the Lee’s Car Show," said Wiley.
Trace Skeen, President of Cache Valley Morning (CVM) Rotary Club and co-organizer of the Car Show added, “We are very pleased to have been able to support Lee’s Marketplace in achieving an overwhelming turnout in the family holiday tradition Lee’s has created for the Valley, and in terms of the attendance, car registration, and the funds raised for the Rotary Club at the Car Show this year. As a Club we feel empowered to have the extra financial resources to contribute in turn to the good causes of other non-profits including the recently renamed The Family Place (formerly Child and Family Support Center).
