Father-Son Show and Shine Car Show


Farmington Elementary School hosted the third annual Father-Son “Show & Shine” Car Show earlier this month.

This year, almost 50 cars, a dump truck, Germantown’s fire truck, ambulance, police SUV and the SWAT Bearcat came out to support the event.

For the third year, Kirk Welch, Farmington Alumni and classic car enthusiast, helped Toni Nygren and Janna Hacker promote this free PTO event.

Boys and their dad’s admired a variety of cars and voted on their favorites, while enjoying ice cream from PAWS Ice Cream Truck and snacking on nachos. Votes were cast and trophies were awarded at the end of the show. Rockin’ Robin DJs provided entertainment and passed out prizes throughout the event.

Prizes were donated by AutoZone, Christian Brothers Automotive Germantown, NAPA Auto Parts, Firestone Germantown on Poplar,, One & Only BBQ, Huey’s, Germantown Car Wash, Pyro’s Pizza, Malco Theatres, RDJ Specialties, Firehouse Subs, and Germantown Hardware. There were also several in-kind sponsors: Costco, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Kroger Farmington, Kirk and Wendy Welch, Jegs and Summit Racing.

This event was especially enjoyable because it brought students, families and neighbors together, creating a strong sense of school community, spirit and pride.
