EQUINUNK – The Equinunk Historical Society will be holding its 15th Annual Car Show on June 21 on Pine Mill Road.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free to the public. The car show will also feature a DJ, craft and flea market vendors, a bake sale, historical book sale, door prizes, dash plaques, food and refreshments and a limited number of goody bags.
“We are still looking for vendors,” said Carol Ann MacMaster, a member of the Car Show Committee. “The cost is $10 for a 10x10 space.”
If you're interested in becoming a vendor contact Nicole Warmuth at (607) 644-3245 or the Equinunk Historical Society at (570) 224-6722.
The car show was started by the late Bob Gossman, Bob Kramer and Don Kaszner.
“They are the three founders who built it up to what it is today,” said Charlie Bennett, a member of the Car Show Committee.
He has been on the committee for over 10 years.
MacMaster said there are no fees of any kind to have vehicles in the show.
“There are no classes, no examinations and no fees,” she stated. “Whoever wants to come with a car can do so.
“The event is for car and show enthusiasts who want to have a good time.”
Last year's show saw 172 vehicles.
“It gets bigger every year,” said Bennett. “We are open to have a mix of makes, models and years [with cars].”
He added they are starting to get cramped in the space they have with the amount of cars.
“We have to start thinking about finding another venue,” Bennett said. “Every year it grows.”
MacMaster said people can come any time with their vehicles, but are asked to be there by noon if they can.
“We'll start looking at the vehicles around that time for awards,” she explained.
There will be voting for a People’s Choice Award and two Special Recognition Awards will be given out.
Bennett said people really enjoy the event.
“Our focus is providing an event that's affordable and family-friendly,” he said. “There's no admission or entrance fee. If people want to give a donation they can do so, but it's a completely free event.”
He added people can expect all kinds of cars and a friendly atmosphere that's stress free.
