Sunday a day to celebrate cars

Annual auto show Aug. 26

For area car buffs, the big day is Sunday, Sept. 26, as the 24th annual Autumn Leaves Car Show returns to Granville.
Admission is $3 per person with children under 15 free. Show car entries are $15 each and include two admissions to the show. Registration for vehicles begins at 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.


The show will run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The rain date will be Sunday, Oct. 3, with the same hours and details.
The first 200 entries will receive a dash plaque and goodie bags.
Each paid admission wins the chance at a 32-inch Samsung HD LCD television — a door prize first for the show.
“Everybody has a chance – we’re going to give that TV to somebody,” Davies said.
Former Granville Area Chamber of Commerce President Harry Haldt will emcee the event this year.
Cars, trucks and many other vehicles in every color of the rainbow and then some all shined up like rolling mirrors will fill up the grounds of the Granville Elementary School at 61 Quaker St.
“We’re hoping to see a bigger turnout than normal,” committee chairwoman Denise Davies said. Davies said Granville Area Chamber of Commerce members have been burning up the Internet with e-mails attempting to get more vehicles into the show this year. Several regional car clubs are aware of the show, she said, and now all that remains is hoping for blue skies and warm sunshine.
“All we need is good weather; everything else is there” Davies said. “That’s what’s key. You have to get the cars there so we have a rain date, but hopefully we won’t need it.”
There will be music at the event.
Davies said patrons and entrants alike enjoyed playing the Auto Trivia game again last year so it is coming back. Organizers received positive feedback on the game where people won prizes for answering questions relating to cars,.
Granville American Legion Post 323 will be selling barbecued chicken and the Boy Scouts will be selling hot dogs and snacks during the entire show.
Every patron and entrant gets a ballot to vote for the People’s Choice award winner.
Autumn Leaves is an event chamber members hope will get a sleepy fall Sunday jumping with excitement. 
“It really is a good day and it’s always a fun time,” Davies said.
