Annual Classic Car Show Revs Up Park Street
More than 400 classic vehicles will be on display in Alameda’s historic downtown district -- Vintage Show Cars, Roadsters, Coupes, Hot Rods, Antique Muscle Cars, and more. The free event takes place on October 8, 10am-4pm.
Classic cars of every description will line Park Street in Alameda’s historic downtown district between Encinal Ave and Buena Vista Ave. Most of the cars come from those magical decades -- the '50s and the '60s. But there will also be plenty of classic roadsters and coupes from the '20s, '30s, and '40s along with muscle cars from the '70s.
Last year, 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.” The Park Street Classic Car Show is hosted by the Crankers Car Club and is sponsored in part by Lee Auto Supply and the Park Street Business Association.
In addition to the cars, many of the businesses in the Park Street Business District will be open during the show. Festival-goers are encouraged to “Shop Park Street” and peruse the unique collections of our fine stores and enjoy the tasty fare of our fabulous restaurants. New this year, the Alameda Marketplace will be hosting plenty of food, fun, and entertainment in their nearby parking lot.
So come on down to Park Street in Alameda to see the show, get in some shopping at stores you won’t find in any mall, eat your way through our 50+ restaurants, and catch a movie while you’re at it. Enjoy the 2011 Park Street Classic Car Show and a whole lot more on Saturday, October 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
