Kroger once again donated the food for the free breakfasts for participants and spectators, and the folks from Bert and Den’s Grille cooked and served. Jennifer, who owns the restaurant, reported that they served more than 250 eggs, 17 pounds of bacon, 5 1/2 gallons of sausage gravy and a whole bunch of biscuits. The Best of Show was presented to Bill Weber for his 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible.
The entry fees amount to more than $1,100, which was presented to Robin Heldman, president of the Gateway Community Alliance.
“The show gets better and bigger every year,” said Chris Truran, regional supervisor of Tri-Land Properties, which manages the shopping center. “We’re really looking forward to next year as we build this event in conjunction with Garfield Park and the University of Indianapolis and our efforts to highlight the Southside.”
