Shrimp and Grits Car Show

There will be a car show on the island during Shrimp and Grits Festival. The Jekyll Island Authority is taking the lead for the event but they would like the Jekyll Island Car Club to help with the organizing and the daily activities. The JIA will also be in charge of trophies and judging. Friday, September 14th through Sunday, September 16th are the dates for the event. This sounds like a really great time for the Jekyll Island Car Club and a first for the Shrimp and Grits Festival.
