Seabrook, TX: May 6th and 7th brought thousands of car and boat enthusiasts to Lakewood Yacht Club for the
Annual Keels & Wheels Concours D' Elegance, the world's largest display of classic automobiles and vintage wooden boats.
Nearly 200 cars and more than 90 boats were on display across the Club's 38-acre grounds. The featured Marques this year were the Stutz Automobile, American Classics and Hot Rods.
Specialty vendors selling a variety of merchandise were intermingled among the cars, boats and 100-year-old oak trees as well as around LYC's beautiful Inner Harbor. This year's event also included a Food Court featuring food and beverages from local restaurants T-Bone Tom's, Tookie's Seafood and Tookie's Hamburgers as well as a Beer & Wine Garden featuring Shiner Beer and wine from Haak Winery. The boat awards ceremony was Saturday, and the car awards ceremony took place on Sunday followed by the car raffle, which had one lucky winner getting to drive home in a brand new Lincoln Continental.
Proceeds from the event benefit Boys and Girls Harbor, a not-for-profit organization celebrating 65 years of providing healthy, comprehensive residential care for children and families in crisis.
Officially hosted by LYC Concours Corp. and Southwest Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society., this year's Title Sponsors included the City of Seabrook, The Lincoln Motor Company and Bay Area Regional Medical Center.
More than 300 LYC member volunteers help make this event so successful each year. Plan to attend next year's Keels & Wheels event scheduled for May 5-6, 2018.
