The Final Salute to the Apache Drive-In is just around the corner, and we have a lineup of prizes and fun in store for you!
Check out all the categories, and remember you can enter more than one!
Take a look and plan which one you’ll want to enter. Entry is FREE. You can enter more than one category, and registration forms will be handed to you as you arrive that night inside your welcome packet. Just fill them out and bring them to the stage, or hand them to one of our runners that evening. Then listen for your category to be called and be near the stage as we ask contestants to walk across it in front of our panel of judges.
