Weekend Radar: Addams Family, Coastal Canoeists Paddle Sports Film Festival, Silent Party, VMFA After 5

COVID-19 community level remains high for Richmond, Henrico and Chesterfield. The 7-day average case rates per 100,000 people in each locality are 270, 260, 247, respectively. CDC guidelines continue to recommend that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in indoor public places. . We will therefore focus on outdoor sites.

Additional note: I tested positive for Covid on Monday and have since isolated myself. Minor symptoms I guess due to full vaxing. Anecdotally, I know many more friends and family members who have contracted Covid in the past month than at any time during the pandemic.

Cars & Cuts 2022 at Mechanicsville (7167 Flag Ln)
June 12, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., free

I also wanted to have a cool car. Then, for a little while, I had a nice 1968 Ford Galaxy. I quickly realized that if you don’t have mechanical skills, you’re going to spend a lot of money. I don’t have much money so I said goodbye to my sweet Galaxy. If you have a nice car or just want to be jealous of others, this is the event for you.

It’s time for our favorite event of the year…CARS & CUTS 2022! This is a community car show and cruise that anyone can join!

Every year we try to do better than the year before, and this year would be no different! We’ll of course be setting up the Mobile Barbershop along with the same great DJ and Amazing Local Food / Shaved Ice Trucks, but we’ll also be turning up the heat in a number of other ways this year:

1) There will be plaques and prizes (FREE T-shirt, FREE haircut gift card and a cash prize) given to the top 3 local favorites! To enter your car/truck/bike to win, there will be a $10 entry fee. You will receive a car number card to put in your window and everyone present will vote using these numbers!
– if you are not interested in participating in the show part, you can always join us for free and just browse and enjoy the day! (You can bring your car and get out for free, only those who pay the entrance fee will receive the window card and have the chance to win!) ***It’s new this year so don’t be disturbed, we want you to bring your cars/trucks/bikes anyway!

2) In order to make the show a bit more family and community friendly, we will have a limited number of vendors on site selling local produce! We will have vendors selling freshly squeezed lemonade and lemonade as well as makeup artists and much more!!!
– Vendor spaces are $30 and we have about 10 spaces left! Please message the shop or Jacob Smith directly! PLEASE understand that because places are limited, we will do our best to provide a wide range of vendors without too much overlap!

3) PORTA POTTY 😂🤣 While we will always have access to the pavilion bathrooms as we have had every year, this year we will rent 1 or 2 to place them a little closer to the event in order to offer a little more comfort to the guests.
It’s going to be an awesome time, and we can’t wait to see you there! REMEMBER this is a community event for all to enjoy, so PLEASE SHARE AND TAG EVERYONE to spread the word! Especially the “Car People” in your lives! If you are part of a local car group/club, we would love to have you!

We have access to the grassy ground as well as the paved ground so there is plenty of space!!
