Jump behind the steering wheel and set your course for Ticonderoga, because you’re not going to want to miss the 25th Annual Ticonderoga Area Car Show on Sunday, August 6! Held in Ticonderoga’s Bicentennial Park from 9 am – 4 pm, you can peruse antique vehicles to your heart’s content and participate in this classic Ticonderoga event that’s been around for a quarter of a century.
Car Show Competition
Do you own an antique beauty, a tricked out ride, or a restored project you want to show off to the community? Pre-register as a car show participant before Saturday, August 5 to be entered to win a variety of giveaways and to pay only a $15 entry fee. Day of registration is $20, but no matter when you enter, be sure to be parked and ready to go for judging at 11 am.
Participating cars can win custom designed awards and plaques in the categories of Fabulous 50, Top 25, Best of Show Car, Best of Show Truck, Best of Show Motorcycle, Best of Show Display, Chambers Choice, Fans Choice, Most Radical Engine, Best Color Scheme, Favorite Antique, and Best Work In Progress. In addition to these awards, the show is a “SuperWheels Showdown” Qualifier in which the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will choose one vehicle to compete in the “SuperWheels Showdown” in Boston, MA in October.
More for Spectators
You don’t have to own a classic car to have a great time at the Ticonderoga Area Car Show. Admission for spectators at all car show events is free, and there are plenty of events to enjoy! During the Car Show there will be food, vendors, music, and t-shirts for sale. Bring the whole family, because there will be a kid zone with air brushed tattoos, a bouncy house, and a playground. Stick around for chances to win a 50/50 Raffle, the Kiwanis Duck Race, a Piston Toss, and a Muffler Wrap!
New this year is the Car Show Raffle; tickets are available for a donation of $10 through Sunday, August 6 or until sold out. Enter for the opportunity to win a first prize of $2,500 or a second prize of $1,500, and if you need to drive away before the drawing, don’t sweat it – you don’t need to be present to win. You’ll want to snatch the tickets up at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office and some local businesses, because only 1,000 of them will be sold!
