Greetings Cruisers! We have a lot going on as we move into the warmer months. Here’s the rundown of shows through to Labor Day weekend.
May Lake Country Cruisers Car & Bike Show at the Lake Placid American Legion, May 13, 9 am to 12 noon
Our next American Legion show will be this Saturday, May 13, 2023. Our beautiful winter weather is now behind us, so to knock off some of the heat, starting this Saturday, our summer “day” shows will start at 9 am and run until 12 noon. Entry fee is just $5.00 and there will be Door Prizes, 50/50, Rock’n Roll music, Cruiser of the month, Bike of the Month, plus burgers, cheeseburgers, and dogs on the Legion’s outside grill for lunch!
Second Lieutenant Pharis Weekley is Coming Home
Also, this Saturday there will be a special and solemn event that will take place during our show. According to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), on July 12, 2022, the remains of 21-year-old, WW-II Second Lieutenant Veteran Pharis Weekley were identified. His remains will be returned to the Dana-Howard-Weekley Post 130 in Labelle, Florida this Saturday.
The police escort procession will travel south on Rt. 27 and will drive by the Lake Placid American Legion Post 25 between 9:30 and 10:30. When the procession gets close to the Legion, we encourage everyone to gather along Rt. 27 to salute Second Lieutenant Pharis Weekley coming home to rest.
We will be giving 4” x 6” flags on wooden stick-poles (“Made In The USA”) to everyone who signs in for the show!
GC Grillhouse has generous Lunch Specials for $9.99 and they have a full bar for adult beverages. So come on out and hang with us. We’ll do some serious bench racing, tell jokes, laugh, eat, and solve all the world’s problems!
Our sponsor Dock 633, on Lake June Road in Lake Placid, has asked us to have a Car & Bike Show to celebrate the Grand Opening of their new outside “Sand Bar” Tiki bar. There will be no entry fee, live music all day, and we will be having a 50/50.
We will be back at the Lake Placid American Legion on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The show starts at 9 am and goes until 12 noon. Entry fee is just $5.00 and there will be Door Prizes, 50/50, Rock’n Roll music, Cruiser of the month, Bike of the Month, plus dogs and burgers on the grill for lunch!
We’re doing something a little different at the Lake Placid American Legion; a late afternoon, early evening Car & Bike show. The show will start at 5 pm and run to 8 pm. Hopefully, as the show progresses it will get cooler, instead of warmer as when we have daytime shows.
The entrance fee is just $5.00 and we will have Rock’n Roll music, door prizes, 50/50, Cruiser of the Month, and Bike of the Month awards. The Legion’s outside grill will be serving up burgers and dogs, as well as smoked brisket and ham! And, the Legion will have Live music inside.
There will be numerous food and drink vendors, shirts available, prizes for the cars, and a 50/50. FYI, last year’s Caladium Car & Bike Show’s 50/50 payout was $1,000!!!

The 2022 Caladium Car & Bike Show was the biggest show in the 20 years Lake Placid has been hosting the shows. There were just over 275 cars and bikes last year.
Stewart Park is on Interlake Blvd in Lake Placid, just two short blocks from the intersection of Interlake Blvd. And Main Street. It is a lovely park with lots of trees for shade and within walking distance of numerous Lake Placid eateries. We’ve been wanting to do a show here for some time. Also, the Lake Placid Farmer’s Market will be open.
The entrance fee is just $5 and there will be Rock’n Roll music, Door Prizes, Cruiser of the Month, and Bike of the Month Awards, as well as a 50/50. All Lake Country Cruisers Car & Bike Shows are family-friendly, so bring the kids and the grandkiddos to enjoy some of Highlands County’s Car Culture! We’re dog friendly too, just keep your doggies on a leash and clean up after them.
