A treat is in store for car buffs when collectors of classic automobiles showcase their vehicles on Saturday June 23, 2018 from 3-7 pm as part of Lake Bluff History Museum’s sixth annual Auto Show. Approximately 150 vehicles are expected to fill east Scranton and Center Avenues adjacent to Lake Bluff’s Village Green. These streets will be closed during the event to accommodate the incredible cars and the people admiring them. There is no charge to attend this popular, family-friendly event.
“It’s a gem of a car show. I saw cars I’ve never seen at other shows,” raved a past attendee. “The event continues to grow and we expect well over 100 cars this year,” said event chair Mark Dewart. The event’s appeal is evidenced by the size of the crowds which continue to grow, and by the number and variety of vehicles exhibited. Many car owners return year after year, as does the museum’s 1931 Lake Bluff Ice Truck. It will be prominently displayed along with dozens of classic cars – a variety of makes and models – dating from 40, 50 … 80 years ago.
Collectors of cars dating pre-1985 are invited to participate in the show and can register their vehicles online at lakebluffhistory.org.
