It all started the second weekend of June in 1970, and Sisseton proudly celebrated a long-running tradition with the 48th Annual Car Show June 2, 2018. It began when Harold Torness, Orren Pederson and Kenny Erdahl were throwing around some ideas to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of the Roberts County National Bank, and they decided it would be nice to begin a car show as Emery Ford had begun producing Fords that same year..
