The Jimmy Smooth’s Creepin’ Show will return to Jefferson County for a second year, but it will be held in a new location.
The show will be from 1 p.m.. until dusk Saturday, Sept. 11, at Big River VFW, 1 Lynn Lane, in Cedar Hill.
Last year, the show was held on Mall Drive.
“We decided to change the location to have more room for cars and better traffic flow,” said planning committee member Vicky James, chief operating officer for Chapel Hill Mortuary.
Advance tickets for the event cost $15 and may be purchased on the “Jimmy Smooth’s Creepin’ Show” Facebook page. Tickets will cost $20 the day of the event. Children 12 and younger may attend for free, James said.
She said the highlight of the event is a car show featuring about 300 “rat rods.”
James said a rat rod is a custom-built vehicle “usually in its original patina that fits the personality of the car builder.”
It costs $25 to enter a car in the show in advance or $30 the day of the event, James said.
She said profits from the event will benefit local charities, although organizers had not selected the charities yet.
James said last year’s show raised more than $20,000 for area charities, including Hoofprints On My Heart, Peace Pantry, Boehringer Foundation, SSM Health Cancer Program, the Northwest Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, Cherish, CHADS Coalition and more.
This year’s event also will feature a performance from the Well Hungarians band at 1 p.m. followed by Breakdown Shakedown at 2:30 p.m.
A pinup contest and auction will be held at 4:30 p.m., and live music will return with Cedar Hill resident and singer Aliana Good performing at 6 p.m., followed by Jason Ashley at 7 p.m.
James said the event will feature a special beer named “The Original Jimmy Smooth Golden Lager Beer” made by the Bastard Brothers Brewing Co. in High Ridge.
James said the event will have a “surprise ending,” so she encourages everyone to stay until the conclusion.
The event is named after Jim Davis of Cedar Hill, who owns Davis Excavating.
