The 26th Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals directed thousands of first-timers and seasoned veterans to Lake Ozark’s Bagnell Dam Strip for one of the Lake of the Ozarks area’s largest car shows this weekend.

Many unique and classic cars, like this old Ford, were on display at the Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals.

“This is our favorite show,” said Mary Shoemake of Patton, Missouri, who with her husband, Rich, brought their 1973 Chevrolet Z-28 Camaro to the car show for the fifth year in a row.

“It’s the whole setting,” Rich Shoemake said. “There are cars all up and down the strip. You could park them all in a parking lot somewhere, but this is so much better.”

The Magic Dragon Street Meet featured cars of various makes, models and years, which could be entered in 23 different categories, plus the grand champion’s Best of Show, awarded to the vehicle with the highest overall score across all categories. Four motorcycle categories were also open to competitors.

The event, which began Friday afternoon and wraps up this afternoon, also included the Aces High Poker Run, a Kids’ Zone for young attendees’ entertainment and the Lake Ozark Daybreak Rotary’s car giveaway. The show opens at 8 a.m. this morning with judging from 9 to 11 a.m., and awards will be presented at 1 p.m.
