The Baton Rouge Corvette Club is sharing its love of the classic American car with displays around the community this winter and spring.
Several club members recently paraded with residents of Ollie Steele Burden Manor Nursing Home during Carnival festivities. Residents received rides in the cars, watched the cars on parade and caught beads and trinkets thrown from the Corvettes. School bands, cheerleaders and others also participated in the Carnival fun.
On Feb. 17-18, the club also supported a car display to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the Walmart on Airline Highway in Gonzales. The displays give people a chance to see a variety of the sports car and for children to learn about the vehicles from their owners, a news release said.
Upcoming displays include:
SATURDAY: Hooters, 254 N. Range 12 Blvd., Denham Springs
MARCH 10: Siegen Walmart, 10606 N. Mall Blvd.
MARCH 17: Juban Crossing Walk-On’s, 27010 Crossing Circle, Denham Springs
APRIL 7: Denham Springs Walmart
APRIL 14: Butcher Boy, 58045 Belleview Highway, Plaquemine and Rouses Market, 58440 Belleview Highway, Plaquemine
Every year, the club raises funds for St. Jude, culminating with the annual St. Jude Open Car Show. This year’s show is the 20th and will be held April 21 at Bayou Plaquemine Waterfront Park in Plaquemine. Early registration is encouraged.
