You can drive in, fly in, walk in or crawl in — but make sure to get there so you don’t miss out on the family fun filling the Cameron Air Park during the 24th annual Show N Shine and Fly In set for Saturday, Sept. 28.

Once a year residents of the Cameron Park neighborhood that includes an airport are happy to close off the streets and welcome friends and neighbors to browse the area, admiring hundreds of classic cars and vintage aircraft during the daylong event.

All that perusing of proud aircraft and classic cars is bound to stir up a hunger and thirst, so there will be plenty of vendors to keep the crowd well fueled.

Proceeds from the Show N Shine, which is sponsored by Soroptimist International of Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills, benefit various charitable causes locally, and a charity raffle of a vintage car will highlight the day.

Another highlight will literally be a high-light, as veteran pilot Chuck Wahl and his co-pilots Bob Lessman and Jim Booth fly over the crowd in their SMJ two-seaters with an exciting aerial display sure to get the blood pumping.

Wahl, owner of Vultures Row Aviation, has been coming to the Show N Shine since the late 1990s and eventually built a home in the Cameron Air Park in 2003.

He looks forward each year to the annual Show N Shine.

“This is a wonderful day of sun, airplanes, cars, family and friends,” said Wahl.

The day begins at 7 a.m. as the pink tint of sunrise will light the way to a pancake breakfast served up by Cameron Park Rotary’s “Team Pancake,” with proceeds benefitting the Ponderosa High School Interact Club.

The Ponderosa High Marching Band will perform at 10:30 a.m., so don’t even try to keep your feet from tapping to the sounds.

By lunchtime, there will be plenty of vendors in place to treat event-goers to a wide variety of selections, with 45 community organizations, sponsors and vendors lining the streets to make sure everyone is satiated. Soft drinks, beer and wine will be for sale.

In addition to the rousing performance by the high school band, plenty of musical groups will fill the airpark with their songs, and DJ Party Service, Rodney Stanhope DJ will spin the platters (or fire up more modern contraptions) to keep the party going.

Car buffs will let their own lights shine as they proudly show their beauties, with some 250 vehicles expected in the car show. One local resident, Larry Shuler of Shingle Springs, has been bringing his 1932 red Ford hot rod to the Show N Shine for 10 years. The 80-year-old said he wouldn’t miss Saturday’s fun.

“The event is a great opportunity to reconnect with friends that you don’t see every day, and to see and talk with the owners of all the different cars that show up,” said Shuler.

A 1963 Corvair Spyder turbo convertible, donated to the show and restored by Kniesel’s Collision Centers, will go to the lucky holder of a $1 raffle ticket, with the drawing at 2 p.m.; the winner need not be present. Raffle proceeds benefit the Shingle Springs/Cameron Park Chamber of Commerce and Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Inc. (MORE).

Fifty vintage aircraft will compete for their place in the sun, with the weather forecast for Saturday calling for clear, blue skies and temperatures in the low 80s. It should be perfect for those who wish to take a peek through a sun telescope, offered by docents of the Cameron Park Rotary Community Observatory, another highlight of the Show N Shine.

In addition to all the food booths, dozens of other vendors will be at the show, with offerings running the gamut from jewelry and crafts to beauty products, insurance plans, travel information and fitness.

The Show N Shine, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., is free of charge, although there is a $3 parking fee.
