The fifth annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance will be held this Sunday, July 30, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the Excelsior Commons in Excelsior, Minnesota. This one-of-a-kind exhibition will feature more than 180 historic and superbly conditioned cars, boats and motorcycles from as early as the 1900s, displayed along the shores of Lake Minnetonka.
Event founder Randy Guyer came up with the idea for this event after spending years taking his cars to judged competitions across the U.S. He wanted not only to create a hometown show, but one that would showcase the rare automobiles from Minnesota and show off the beauty of the state to car owners and enthusiasts from around the country.
Guyer believes automobiles are not merely machines, but are “memories of family, friends, good times…things that truly matter.” This belief is on the forefront of this year’s event as coordinators are celebrating the theme that “Every Vehicle Has A Story.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit Bridging, a nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities that provides donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.

Concours tickets for adults are $25 per person, while admission for children 12 and under, as well as active military members with ID, is free. For complete information please visit www.10000lakesconcours.com
