The Mercer Island Classic Car Show will roll back into town on July 24, according to the Avants website. The show was canceled last year per the governor’s pandemic mandate.

This year’s event will feature the “Cruise the Loop” and car show from 8-10 a.m.

“Cruise around the island and then park your car in Downtown Mercer Island for a fun neighborhood car show. We’ll have a bunch of photographers strategically positioned around the island capturing all of the action,” reads a notice on the Avants site.

Last year, the local 13-mile “Cruise the Loop” event featured about 200 vehicles.

This year’s cruise around the Island will begin at the City Hall parking lot at 8 a.m. and complete at the old Farmers parking lot, where drivers will gather for a mini car show. The is no registration needed and no entry fee. They are hoping to feature about 200-plus vehicles if the weather is good, according to Island resident and organizer Tom Alberts.
