New venue successful for Great Adirondack Car Show

PLATTSBURGH - The parking lot of the Crete Memorial Civic Center was packed as the Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce held its 11th annual Great Adirondack Car Show, Craft Fair and Giant Garage Sale June 20.

Jody A. Parks, executive vice president of the chamber of commerce, said the event drew more than 2,000 attendees, making it "a huge success."

"People loved the car show, craft fair, garage sale, pony rides and petting zoo, and the kids couldn't wait to try the gigantic inflatable obstacle course provided by Good Guy Productions/Sound & Sights Entertainment," said Parks.

This year, having the event at the new venue worked out well, said Parks.

"The layout was perfect, the visibility from the road brought in a lot of traffic, and everyone loved the new location," said Parks.

Teaming up with WOKO 98.9 to host the Giant Garage Sale was also a benefit for the event, said Parks.

"We had more than 50 crafter/garage sale vendors this year, which made it a lot of fun," she said. "We expect this to grow even more next year."
