A New Car Show Comes to the Champlain Islands!
Vermont Auto Enthusiasts, the organization that presents the Stowe Car Show each year, will hold the first annual Automobiles at the Islands Center at Knight Point State Park in North Hero on Saturday, July 7th. All vehicles are welcome, including historic autos, trucks, motorcycles and more. Featured events this year are spectator judging, games, cars, food, and vendors with everything from food and crafts to “those things you have stored in your garage for old cars”.
The automobiles will be on display from 9:30 to 3:30 p.m. Spectator judging ends at 2, after which prizes will be awarded. Car games will be in the Show Field. Watch classic cars compete in balloon breaking, slow racing, and blind driver! Food and beverages will be for sale. The VFW is cooking up burgers, hot dogs and ribs, along with fine food prepared by the Champlain Islands Farmers Market. Hall Home Place will offer tastings of their Ice Cider. More vendors are welcome. Vendor space for car-related items is also available. Vendor space is $10, $15 after July 1. Bring your own tables and tents.
