Save the dates. The annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals show is a go. 

The Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the 32nd Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals and registration is still open for this popular lake area event.    In March, the chamber made a tough decision to move the event dates from May to September.  "We are thrilled to announce that we are moving forward with this event. Social distancing is now the norm of 2020; and, with this being an outdoor event, we are confident we can host this year’s event while also adhering to the recommendations from the CDC," according to a press release.    The event will be scaled down from previous years.  The chamber will forgo the Bigfoot Monster Truck car smashing, bounce houses and children activities to ensure they do not have large gatherings in one place.    The chamber is collaborating with the Bagnell Dam Strip Association and will be offering a classic car cruise on Friday evening in conjunction with the Hot Summer Nights event.    For their sixth year in a row, Summer USA is the Presenting Sponsor for the 32nd Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals.    “We are proud to be part of such a significant event which benefits the entire Lake area,” stated Joe Page, owner of Summer USA.  The Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals is also famous for being the only car show in the Midwest that gives away a brand new muscle car every year, thanks to Lake Ozark Daybreak Rotary.  “The Lake Area Chamber is proud to host this annual event and like any other successful event, it takes the support of many sponsors (especially reoccurring Presenting Sponsor Summer USA) and countless community partners to host one of the largest car shows in the Midwest” said Chamber Executive Director K.C. Cloke. "The Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals brings back the vintage era to the Historic Bagnell Dam Strip, with Rat Rods, muscle cars, a variety of classics, mixed in with a flash of new style and something for everyone to enjoy."    The show officially begins on the Strip at noon on Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, as hundreds of show cars begin to arrive for the event.  You can register your car online at www.MagicDragonCarShow.com or by calling the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce at (573)964-1008.
