NATCHEZ —Approximately 200 people walked the grounds of Rosalie on Saturday at the fourth annual Euro Fest Natchez car show.
Visitors had the opportunity to see antique and classic European automobiles up close and ask questions the owners questions about the vehicles.
“I’m kind of a gear head, so I like to look at any old car,” said Reese Weeks of Natchez who attended the car show Saturday, despite the threat of rain from the clouds looming overhead.
The feature car of the show was an Italian-made Alfa Romeo.
Bo and Penny Richardson said they drove down from Nashville Tennessee in their 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia to attend the show.
“We thought it would be too long a trip for one of our other older Alfas,” Penny Richardson said, “so we drove this one down instead, and it was much more comfortable.”
Other cars makes on display Saturday, included Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche and Rolls Royce.
In the Alfa Romeo class the award for outstanding in class went to Peggy Neely for her 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce.
For the Rolls Royce class Merry McSwain of New Orleans was awarded outstanding in class for her 1982 turbo red colored Silver Spirit Rolls.
Some other winners included William Harter and Elizabeth Burk in the Mercedes class; Galen Poole for his 1986 Alfa GTV6 and Michael Glore for his 1965 Alfa Giulia.
Euro Fest promoter Mike Marsh of Brandon said he was pleased with the turnout of Saturday’s fourth-annual event in Natchez.
“We feel very fortunate to have gotten the show completed under these weather conditions,” Marsh said. “We got everything done, all the judging and all of the awards were given out. Our car owners were happy to be here in Natchez.”
