Cross Brand Car and Bike Show in Tyler brings the community together | New

More than 100 vehicles – from old and new cars to motorcycles and Jeeps – were on display Saturday at the second annual Cross Brand Car and Bike Show at the Cross Brand Cowboy Church.

The goal of the event is to unite the community, said Brack Bivens, arena manager for the church.

“We have been so thrilled and overwhelmed with the turnout and support and how good it has been for people in general,” he said. we call community.”

Bivens said the event grew out of the community’s love for vehicles of all types.

“A lot of us, especially my dad and I, have vintage cars, show cars and (there are) a lot of car enthusiasts here at the church, so we looked for a different approach to the people and we found out in our community, we have a lot of people with the same interest,” he said. “We try to have events where people can come together. We truly believe we weren’t meant to live alone.

“We try to have events where we can visit each other and have community with each other without preaching to someone, just reaching out to them and being able to love them and be in community with them.”

The church also hosts rodeos with barrel racing and more which also have a mission to reach people through a fun time and allow them to be with each other.

Bivens said the vehicles that were showcased in the friendly competition on Saturday were everything from antiques to new cars.

“They had several different categories as well as the bikes. We separated them by model year as well as cars, trucks, jeeps and we separated them like that,” he said.

During the show, three judges walked around and rated the vehicles against certain requirements.
