MAHOMET -- Part of town was filled with people showing off their rides. This is the third year for the city's car show. Cars from around the state were showcased at the event. More than 130 cars were on display.

Prizes were given for best car among other categories. The organizer says the show is a great to bring people to the town.

"The chamber is trying to expand the business district for our town. This is one of those events where maybe people haven't been to Mahomet before and get to see downtown and the businesses here," said organizer Nick Taylor. "So it's a good event to expose people from the area."

Taylor says the city will do it again next year.
