KENTWOOD – Start your engines!
No, it’s not the start of a NASCAR race but participants at the upcoming 4 Wheels 4 Him: Car Show and Spring Fest will hear those words on May 2 at New Zion Baptist Church in Kentwood.
The day’s activities include music, door prizes, jumper houses, BB-guns, bows and arrows and more. Sharing a testimony is Bart Vandrell, who has won the Auto-rama’s World of Wheels at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Vandrell is a member of First Baptist Church in Pearl River.
The 4 Wheels 4 Him format is different from past years, when four-wheelers were the centerpiece. Gibbie McMillan, men’s ministry director for Louisiana Baptists, said the format change was because the timber company no longer allowed use of their land for this purpose.
“So rather than cancel the event totally , we just changed some of the activities and now we will have the car show and games for the children to participate in such as learning to correctly shoot and handle a BB gun and shoot a bow and arrow,” McMillan said. “There will be several different musical groups performing throughout the day, lunch will be served, and door prizes will be given away.”
Registration for the event is at 8 am, with festivities kicking off at 9 am. The event ends at 2 pm.
All entries received by April 25 will receive a t-shirt. Late entries will be accepted through the day of the event, though no t-shirt will be given out after the pre-registration deadline.
The cost of the event is 6 dollars and includes lunch.
