Midnight Fantasies 21st Lake Front Car Show

21st Annual Midnight Fantasies Car and Truck Club Show
The Midnight Fantasies Car and Truck Club is proud to bring a car show to Lake Charles each year, giving spectators the chance to see some very cool, very unique cars. This year’s 21st annual show will be held from March 31 to April 1st and welcomes kids and adults of all ages. A one-day pass is $10, a two-day pass is $15.00 and kids ten and under are free. Times are from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday. The event is held at the Lake Charles Civic Center and has over 80 classes to judge the cars from.

Car Classes and Titles
The cars will be evaluated from a number of criteria – or classes – such as neon lights, tape graphics, a sunroof and grill insert. The cars will be given points based on these classes and have the points tallied up for a final verdict of Mild, Wild or Radical ratings. Of course, the more amenities the car has, the more points it will be awarded, and a better outcome of achieving the Radical title.

Growing from Last Year’s Event
Last year’s event had over 6,000 spectators and 445 cars entered into the car show and was brought to us by Roger Miller and the Midnight Fantasies Car and Truck Club. The show welcomed vehicles of all types such as motorcycles, classic cars and mini and full size trucks, creating a casual atmosphere that still has the competition factor set high. This year, there are new changes coming to the event and over 400 cars entered into the show. These new alterations have been made to make the show even more spectacular, as spectators and entrants have been down over the last few years.

Activities at the Midnight Car Show
Nonetheless, the event has continued to grow over the years and now offers food catering vendors, a crank it contest, dyno pulls, rock climbing, trading card shows, games and music. It prides itself on being a family-friendly event that appeals to all age groups and crowds. Being held at the well-kept Lake Charles Civic Center, families are drawn to the event because of its classiness, kid-friendly events, food vendors and clean, air-conditioned facility.
