Sanford Sound Drew Over 400 to the 24th Show ’N Shine

SANFORD, ME (07.27.2020) – On Sunday, July 26th, Sanford Sound hosted the company’s 24th Annual Show ’N Shine. Owner Jack Bogard related “We had an absolutely terrific event. Best estimate is over 400 people attended the event. Registration for the Show ’N Shine spiked and we had 110 vehicles registered, and on the property around the store, when the event kicked off.”

This image early Sunday morning shows everything getting underway.

Continuing, Bogard related “Everyone who came was so happy to get out and attend an event. The weather was terrific with lots of sun and temperature in the mid 80’s. Some attendees wore masks but everything ran smoothly with social distancing. We actually had a couple officers from the Sanford Police Department and they enjoyed seeing all the cool rides. Everyone also enjoyed the hot dog cart. Miss Sanford Sound Lily Marie was at the event and had big smile for all. Bill, our JL Audio rep, and Chad, our Memphis Audio rep, were onsite and handed out swag to members of the crowd.”

Team members are under the tent working to get people registered early Sunday morning.

There were 4 clubs on site including Dragon, Infamous, Unknown and Revolution. Dragon was represented by 14 members with vehicles and Unknown with 8 members with vehicles. A ’69 Camaro was named Best of Show and its team earned The Best Crew Award. A Lambo, parked in front of the store, certainly grabbed eyeballs.

Well before noon there was a good crowd on hand with lots of cool rides.

The awards and plaques are always unique. This year awards were limited to First Place.The slogan was ‘If you are not 1st… you’re last’. The awards, created by Decade Awards, are standouts with pistons positioned on the top. Over 20 awards were presented including Best Jeep, Best Nissan, Best Mitsubishi, Best Subaru, Best Honda, Best European, Best VW, Best Truck, Best Old School and more. The Show ’N Shine was “show” only with no audio competition. A Sanford Sound event later in the summer will feature audio competitions.

The unique trophies from Decade Awards placed on a table for presentation later in the afternoon.

The Sanford Sound Team on site at the event included Bogard, Lily Marie, Andrew, Kevin, Billy, Donald, Zachery April and Nakia. Dan was on site snapping great images.

Bogard has 12volt in his DNA. Over the years he has established Sanford Sound as a cool place for car audio gear in and round Sanford, ME.

This flier, featuring Miss Sanford Sound Lily Marie, was utilized on social media to attract attention for the event. Looks like it worked!

Bogard concluded “We were kind of on the fence about our Show ’N Shine event this year. We decided to scale it back a bit and move forward with the event which is outside the store. Everything worked out super. A big thanks to all who attended and to our dedicated Team.”
