Ticonderoga Ticonderoga will host a weekend of hot rods and classic cars Aug. 3 and 4.
That’s when the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its 21st annual car show.
“We hope people will join the chamber, the Ticonderoga area and the many visitors at the car show events throughout the weekend,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director.
A Community Cruise In will kick off the weekend at 11 a.m. Saturday starting at the Best Western Plus Ticonderoga Inn & Suites. There will be a Downtown Cruise In along Ti’s Montcalm Street 2 to 4 p.m. The street will be closed to traffic and there will be music outside the chamber office. Awards will be presented.
“The Downtown Cruise In is open to the public with an opportunity to view cars parked in downtown, listen to music and visit local businesses,” Courtright said. “The chamber is working with area businesses to offer specials and promotions for the car show weekend, which will be available to everyone. A flyer with these promotions will be available at the chamber office, online, on Facebook and throughout the area.
“The Downtown Cruise In is a great opportunity to not only see many cars up close, but to support many local businesses,” he said. “We hope to see people there and at the car show on Sunday.”
The 21st Annual Ticonderoga Area Car Show will be held Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Bicentennial Park. There will be 28 classes with awards in each class. The event is a judged show and a SuperWheels Showdown qualifier.
The first 150 people registered will receive a goody bag and dash plaque. During the car show there will be food, vendors, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction raffle tent, car show raffle and music by Jerry’s Juke Box. There will also be a piston toss, muffler wrap and a hoola hoop contest.
