About 120 collectible cars and street rods will roll into downtown Powell for the 16th annual Cruize-In and Pig-Out, organizers said.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 17, in Powell's downtown area, near the intersection of Liberty and Olentangy streets.

"It's an opportunity to enjoy downtown Powell and to see a wide variety of cars," said Larry Coolidge, an organizer of the event. "There are vintage cars, new cars fixed up as show cars, Corvettes, street rods and Army vehicles."

Event food includes pulled pork or chicken sandwiches supplied by City Barbeque, roasted corn and hot dogs, Coolidge said. The historical society will sell ice cream supplied by Graeter's, he said.

"We'll also have a DJ at the corner of Hall and Liberty streets," Coolidge said.

Show organizers will award more than 75 trophies for such designations as Mayor's Choice, Police Officer's Choice and Firefighter's Choice. Ten cars will receive awards of excellence, with one car Best of Show.

A 50/50 raffle drawing will be held at 4 p.m., with 50 percent of the raffle pool going to the raffle winner and the other half benefiting five local nonprofit organizations: the Powell-Liberty Historical Society, Powell Sertoma, Kiwanis of Powell, Olentangy Rotary Clubs and the Justice League of Ohio, Coolidge said. Other earnings from the show also will benefit those organizations.

The event is "great family fun, food and enjoying downtown Powell," Coolidge said, while also helping local organizations.

All makes and models of cars are welcome to enter the car show, Coolidge said.

The entrance fee is $10. Early registration will begin at 10 a.m. Judging will begin at noon, with awards being presented at 3:30 p.m.
