The Paducah Riverfront will be the place to be Saturday as the Four Rivers Corvette Club will host their 14th annual Corvettes on the River charity car show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Corvettes of any model year are welcome. Registration for the show is $30 and includes an event T-shirt.

The show will be judged by technicians from GM’s Bowling Green Assembly Plant, the only facility in the world that produces the Corvette known as “America’s Sports Car.”

Proceeds from the show will benefit Cassidy’s Cause, which provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to grow and develop through therapeutic, educational and recreational activities, while on a horse. There will also be food, vendors, a 50/50 drawing, silent auction, and plenty of door prizes.

A pre-show meet and greet with food and music will be held at Royal Oaks Chevrolet in Paducah on Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. Visit for more information or to pre-register.

I have been coming to this event since I was just a kid with a dream to someday own a Corvette. At that time, I was fascinated with the amount of Corvettes gathered in one place and I knew I someday wanted to take part in it.

I encourage anyone who is a automotive enthusiast from Southern Illinois to come out and help support this show. Even if you don’t own a Corvette come see some of the beautiful cars on display and help a great cause. The Riverfront provides a great atmosphere and this event never disappoints.
