OROFINO, Idaho – Parking spaces may be hard to come by on Friday evening at Dworshak Dam’s Visitor Center, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ recreation officials there.
Visitors will likely experience increased traffic on the road leading to the top of the dam from 6-7:30 p.m. as car owners participating in Saturday’s Orofino “Show and Shine” event make a pit-stop at the dam during a pre-event cruise about town. Visitors can get a sneak-peek of the classic, antique and collector-quality cars during their cruise by the dam. Photo identification will be required for visitors to access the top of the dam where the show cars will be temporarily parked.
Visitors should remain alert to congested traffic in the parking area. Park rangers ask that drivers be patient and courteous to avoid any fender-benders as cars come and go.
For more information about the Orofino Show-and-Shine event, contact Bill Burge at 208-476-5533.
