Seabrook, TX (January 26, 2015) -The 20th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, benefiting The Boys & Girls Harbor, is currently recruiting exhibitors to participate in the event scheduled for May 2-3, 2015.
The weekend-long, nationally acclaimed classic car and vintage wooden boat show takes place each spring at the Lakewood Yacht Club in beautiful Seabrook, TX and attracts more than 15,000 attendees. The car and boat exhibitors come from every part of the United States, contributing to the more than $1.4 million that the Concours has raised to date for local charities.
The features for the 20th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance include the marques of Packard and Mustang for automobiles and Garwood and Hacker for boat classics. In honor of the 20th Anniversary, Keels & Wheels also invites the Best of Show winners from years past to display their automobiles and boats.
Owners of classic cars and antique wooden boats are encouraged to register for the judged competition, which takes place on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The classic boating side of the event is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society, an international organization established to standardize the judging procedure.
Sixty car and twenty boat judges evaluate nearly 40 classes for cars and 20 classes for boats. In addition, Keels & Wheels welcomes celebrity and VIP judges to participate in honoring select vehicles and boats.
Invitations and entry forms for the 2015 Keels & Wheels event are available online and must be submitted no later than March 1, 2015. Because only 200 automobiles and 100 boats will be selected, it is important for submissions to be made as early as possible. Potential exhibitors are asked to submit one photo of the car or boat, along with year, make, model, owner information and a brief history of the entry. Keels & Wheels does not typically consider any automobiles newer than 1972 for entry in the event.
