June 9, 2021 | View PDF
The Village of Potter is rolling out the welcome mat for everything community June 25-26. There will be live music, a barbecue contest, of course a car show, and duck pin bowling.
The event starts 5 p.m. Friday, June 25, with the opening of the beer garden and two live concerts back to back. Attendees can be entertained by the Juke Joint Cruisers of Colorado and the Stahla Ford Band of Kimball.
Fireworks will be held downtown following the concerts.
The weekend will also have a free bounce house for children and free spray-on tattoos.
Saturday's events start at 9 a.m. There will be a swap meet and beer/wine tasting, a crafters area and downtown will be displaying numerous cars of various age and sport.
This year will also include the “Little Tykes Carbowl.” The little tykes version is for children to enter age-appropriate hot rods. They are pedal cars that can be hyped up to the owner's imagination.
Each entry will receive pop and a coffee mug.
“They get treated like all the other guys,” said Drew Enevoldsen.
He said the first year a Little Tykes Carbowl was held, a man from Cheyenne, Wyo., purchased a Barbie corvette and had it custom-painted to match his full-sized Vette. Enevoldsen said there are basically two divisions: adults and youth.
“There's no reason your parents can't help you,” he said.
The Little Tykes Carbowl does require an entry fee.
There will also be a cooking contest again this year. BBQ masters are invited to show off their skills to the public during the Saturday show downtown.
