Classic cars will roll into Powell next weekend for the 26th annual Powell-Downtown Columbus Sertoma Club Cruize-In and Pig Out.

Registration starts at 10 a.m. Aug. 12 at the Village Green, 47 Hall St., with the show starting at noon. Festivities will run until 5 p.m.

Registration for automobiles entering the show is $20; the show is free to attend, although donations are invited.

Proceeds benefit local charities, including the Delaware Speech and Hearing Center and the Justice League of Ohio.

"Since 1997, our club has donated over $500,000 to charities," said organizer Larry Coolidge.

Officials expect more than 150 classic cars to flood the area around the Four Corners intersection of West Olentangy and Liberty streets.

It's different than most other classic-car shows because it's not held at a fairgrounds or sprawling parking lot, Coolidge said.

"The hot spots are Powell Road and West Olentangy Street," Coolidge said. "It's a unique atmosphere for a cruise-in and it's grown to be quite a show."

Most downtown restaurants and businesses will be open for cruisers.

A DJ and 50/50 raffle will help entertain cruisers at the Village Green.

The event this year is in honor of the Powell police and Liberty Township fire departments, Coolidge said.
