Heritage car and boat show set Aug. 17, 18
The 14th annual Oswego Heritage Council Collector Car and Classic Boat Show will be held Aug. 17 and 18 in Lake Oswego.
Featured will be collector cars and classic boats, motorcycles and a showing of PT658, which is the only usable PT (patrol torpedo) boat in the world. Admission will be free at the three venues, including George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego Corporation docks and Foothills Park docks.
The Lake Oswego Lions Club will be on the scene to sell pancakes for breakfast and hamburgers for lunch. Food and drinks will also be available at Stickmen Brewery & Skewery.
The arrival of PT658 will kick off this popular event when it arrives on Aug. 17 at 10 a.m. at Foothills Park docks. The boat, which will be crewed by three World War II veterans, will be welcomed by Lake Oswego Mayor Kent Studebaker.
The third annual water ski spectacular will begin at 3 p.m. A highlight will be the Polka Dot Express Skiers, made up of glamorous ladies in polka dot swimsuits, who will spell out OSWEGO. Other big acts will be water slalom star Bob Barnum, comedy water ski king Gary Lord and Lita Schiel, former Miss Oregon. Lord and Schiel will re-create their performances from the water ski spectaculars held in Lake Oswego during the 1950s.
The classic boat parade will start at 4 p.m., with 35 beautiful boats cruising around Oswego Lake.
On Aug. 18, the cars and boats will be exhibited from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event, which gains in popularity every year, is a project of the Oswego Heritage Council.
