Vettes On The River
The 2017 edition of Vettes On The River is tentatively scheduled for August 26, 2017. Please check back often as we will post updates here as soon as we have more information to share with you. We expect to fill the Le Claire levee once again with Corvettes and we would love to have you join us. For those of you not familiar with this event, Vettes on the River is an all-Corvette Show & Shine Car Show held in LeClaire, Iowa.
If you have a Corvette, you don’t want to miss this one. We’re shooting for a record turnout so we need all the Corvettes we can get! Don’t have a Corvette? That doesn’t matter one bit. Spectators are a very important part of Vettes On The River and who knows, you might just catch Corvette Fever yourself. If you’re a Veteran, first of all – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE – please plan to attend and observe the Color Guard Flag ceremony. This event is all about honoring you and your service and sacrifice for our country. This is a great event on so many levels so make sure you include it in your Summer plans.
