Autumn Leaves next weekend

A s the trees begin to turn a variety of fall colors, one of the village’s most popular events is just around the corner.

The 27th annual Autumn Leaves Car Show returns to Granville next Sunday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event, which takes place at the elementary school, features auto trivia, a chicken barbeque, hot dogs, ice cream, live music and of course, cars.

An average attendance of 200 cars has filled up the show in recent years, and this year features a whole range of categories from 1939 and earlier to a custom PT Cruiser. There will be a number of prizes and awards, from an iPad to a large flat-screen LCD TV.

Car show entries will receive a dash plaque, a commemorative t-shirt and goodie bags, and 15 special awards and 13 major sponsor awards will be handed out as well.

Admission to the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event is $3 for adults and free for those 15 and younger. The entry fee, which includes a t-shirt, $50 gas card raffle ticket and two door prize raffle tickets, is $20.

Entry registration is from 8 to 11 a.m. For more information call Chamber of Commerce President Steve Saltis at 642-1010 or visit granvillechamber.com.
