Best Western Palestine Inn has had an interior makeover and will be showing it off to the public during a Car and Bike Show event Saturday.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the motel parking lot, located at 1601 W. Palestine Ave. on U.S. 79.
“We wanted to have an open house where the public can see the remodeling that has been done. We have new carpet, new furniture and flat-screen TVs,” said Sterling Sherrill, who handles public relations, sales and marketing for Best Western. “We are proud of the renovations and want to let people know about the interior makeover.
“What better way than with a Car and Bike Show where people can come out and enjoy the day? It’s supposed to be good weather on Saturday and it should be a lot of fun.”
The show will feature sports cars, sports bikes and Harley Davidsons. Area car and motorcycle clubs were invited to participate.
“We will have some Italian sports cars. Bacon Autoplex will be bringing out a Corvette and Camaro. MJ’s Custom Cycle will be bringing a bunch of their bikes too,” Sherrill said.
Sponsors of the event include: Mattern’s, Bacon Autoplex, MJ’s Custom Cycle, Denny’s, O’Reilly Auto Parts, H & W Honda, CellularOne, Killion’s Collision and Best Western Palestine Inn.
Taqueria Adamaris will be selling Mexican food and hamburgers and Uncle Ray’s Cajun Chicken will be available too.
“We know there has been a lot of new construction on the Loop, but we want to let people know that there are still things going on this side of town and we have a nice place and rooms for a great rate,” Sherrill said. “We hope everybody will come out and enjoy the festivities.”
