CAR SHOWS REV UP FOR FALL SEASON
Here are three local car shows around the Tri-Cities this fall
Now, grab your sweater, throw on some comfy shoes and get ready for fun this fall! You won’t be disappointed when you head out to a Virginia car show.
That’s right, it’s that time of year when we can start making plans to attend a local car show or two this fall and best of all, car shows are kid friendly and fun for the entire family.
What better way to see your favorite classic cars, hotrods, street rods or muscle cars while being able to hear some great live music, compete in games, win a raffle or maybe even find that car of your dreams and see that it has a price tag you can afford attached to it! Whether you love car shows or you’ve never been to one in your entire life, this October is the time to make plans to get to one of the fun shows in our area.
Not sure which shows to check out? Let’s make it easy for you by showing you three of the biggest shows coming up.
On October 7 from 9AM until 2PM, you can catch the excitement of the 4th Annual Colonial Heights Special Olympics Car, Truck and Bike Show. This is a show geared directly towards families and people of all ages from children to adults. You will see classic cars and vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles as well as muscle cars and much more. There will be face painting, a 50/50 raffle, a dunk tank, food, a live DJ and plenty of excitement for all! They are currently accepting vehicle entry for only $20 per car. This show will be held at the Keystone Tractor and Truck Museum and if you have a show quality car, make plans now to have it delivered so you can show everyone what a great ride you own.
