COMMENTS - Last year several of our members cruised to this show and entered their cars or just walked around. This is a very "Family Friendly" Show with lots of activities to participate in. The food (BBQ) was fantastic and there was live music the entire time we were there. Known as one of the friendliest cars shows around, the Wallis FINE RIDES AUTOFEST has grown to attract a wide variety of customs, street rods, antiques, and specialty vehicles from far and wide.
You will treated to a relaxed country atmosphere at the historic Guardian Angel Catholic Church (one of the famous Painted Churches) grounds, good 'ole rock and roll music and lots of reasonably-priced food and beverages items.
Billed as an "Open Car Show" the Autofest offers 1st, 2nd & 3rd place trophies in 16 different classes, along with "Best Of" awards in special categories. Pre-registered entrants receive a free T-Shirt, and all entrants are eligible for fabulous door prize drawings throughout the day. For the shoppers, there will be lots of Vendor booths and crafts on the church grounds. There is inside, air conditioned seating provided for your eating and drinking pleasure.
Bottom line, this is a great Small Town Texas car show & fair which is worth the short trip South of I-10. This is an Official Vette-Rods Cruise / Show Event.
