Annual Classic Car Show Revs Up Park Street
October 11, 2014
The 21st Annual Park Street Classic Car Show takes place this year on Saturday, October 11. More than 400 classic vehicles will be on display in Alameda’s historic downtown district. Classic cars of every description will line up along Park Street between Encinal Ave and Buena Vista Ave – antique roadsters, coupes, hot rods, muscle cars, and much more. Most of the cars come from the magical decades of the '50s and the '60s, but there will also be plenty of muscle cars from the '70s along with classic beauties from the '20s, '30s, and '40s.
The free event runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is fun for the whole family. Entertainment and prizes will be available and DJs will be spinning oldies from the '50s and the '60s.
In addition to the cars and entertainment, many of the businesses in the Park Street Business District will be open. Spectators are encouraged to “Shop Park Street” and explore the unique collections of our stores and enjoy the tasty fare of our fabulous restaurants. (click here to receive exclusive discounts)
The Park Street Classic Car Show is hosted by the Crankers Car Club and is sponsored in part by PSBA member Lee Auto Supply. We thank them for their incredible dedication to the show. Without their help, this annual event would never get off the ground. As a reflection of their organizing skills, a national representative of the Mustang Club of America declared Park Street’s Classic Car Show to be “the best that he has ever seen.”
Coinciding with the Park Street Classic Car Show, Alameda Bicycle (1522 Park Street) is hosting a Classic Bike Show -- show off your low rider cruiser, vintage road bike, or any other bike you deem a classic.
The Park Street Classic Car Show has a lot to offer! So come on down to Park Street and enjoy the Classic Car Show plus a whole lot more… get in some shopping at stores you won’t find in any mall, eat your way through our 50+ restaurants, check out the display of classic bicycles, and browse an art exhibit or two while you’re at it. Free secure bike valet will be provided.
Look for the special Park Street Classic Car Show Pullout tab in the October 9 edition of the Alameda Sun.
