Classic Car, Cycle & Truck Show

Kish and I decided to walk to the library this morning, and when we got to Market Street we saw that there was another festival of some kind going on.  (Another weekend, another festival.)  Today it is the Classic Car, Cycle & Truck show.

If you like chrome — and what red-blooded American doesn’t really? — this is a show to see.  All of the parking spots around the library, and on Market Street itself, are filled with tricked-out, candy-colored cars and motorcycles of all kinds.  You can listen to some loud rock music as you walk among the rows of lovingly restored, flame-sided, overpowered, hoods-up tributes to the glory years of Detroit and the American auto industry.  In today’s bright sunshine the glint of chrome is blinding and a bit intoxicating.

Admission to the event is free, but all proceeds of the various concession stands will benefit Flying Horse Farms, a local camp that has opened this year to help kids with serious illnesses.  It’s a good cause.  Today’s event runs until 5 p.m.
