Classic Car Show Saturday in Fair Haven

The glimmer of freshly waxed chrome and the sheen of candy-colored muscle cars will be on full display next weekend as the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce hosts its car show at the Fair Haven Town Green.

The eighth annual Classic Auto Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 27.

Spectators will have the opportunity to view a variety of cars, trucks and motorcycles spanning 80 years of automotive history. Old race cars, muscle cars, coupes, Jeeps, trucks and Harley-Davidsons are just some of the vehicles that have been on display in the past.

“We’ve had everything from the 30s on up. We always have a good, wide variety,” said Kerry Fowler, president of the chamber. “Basically the show is open to anything on wheels.”

Unlike many car shows that are split into a number of different classes, the Lakes Region event is an open class show, meaning every vehicle competes for awards against every other vehicle in the show. A trophy will be presented for Best in Show and plaques will be given to the top 25 cars, including the People’s Choice.

The number of vehicles that are entered in the show will hinge largely on the weather. Fowler said he sent out 180 registration forms. Past events have featured upward of 130 vehicles.

Besides stylish cars, there will also be a number of vendors serving up their wares and some food to eat. Perhaps the most popular food attraction is the Fair Haven Rotary barbecue, which benefits the organization’s charitable endeavors. The Lions Club plans to serve burgers and hot dogs.

There will also be craft vendors and possibly a few automotive vendors.

A 50/50 raffle and more than 40 door prizes, provided by chamber members, will be given away during the course of the day. Kathy Mongeur, treasurer for the chamber, has also secured 100 free Stewart’s Shops ice cream certificates that will be given away to children in attendance.

Any vehicle owners who are interested in bringing their car to the show can register the day of the event beginning at 9 a.m. The judging of vehicles will begin at 1 p.m., and awards will be presented at 2 p.m.

Admission to the car show is free, and the street on the backside of the park will be blocked off for the automobiles on display.
