With a new name ushers in a new era for the annual car show. The car show was formerly known as Mitchell Ostry Memorial Show N Shine and although we have changed the name we will still honor Mitch's spirt. We will present the Best Tri-Five award in his honor. The proceeds from the car show will still go towards the Mitchell Ostry Memorial Scholarship. The annual Car Show brings out the coolest entries. So, fire up your car or truck, bring your friends to enjoy the sights and sounds of main street Prague, Nebraska!
