Now that the annual Fourth of July celebration and Taste of Edmonds are in the books for 2010, the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce is turning its attention to the next major tradition: the 10th Annual Edmonds Classic Car Show, set for Sunday, Sept. 12.
“We’re looking forward to a terrific day of sunshine, warmth, great cars, good music and a fun time for everyone,” said Chris Fleck, show chairman.
Anyone with a classic car — defined as a 1970 model or older — is invited to exhibit at the event, which runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and draws between 300-400 vehicles each year that are displayed in downtown Edmonds. The entry fee is $15 if you register by Aug. 31 and $20 the day of the show. Awards will be given in various categories, including Best of Show, which features a leather jacket with the car show logo.
In addition, attendees can visit a Now and Then Display, with classic cars side-by-side with 2010 models (think Volkswagen Beetle or Ford Mustang).
New this year is a treat sure to delight the young and young at heart: Free cartoons will be shown at the Edmonds Theater from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
For those who come to the show with an appetite, the North Sound Community Church at 404 Bell St. is offering a free pancake breakfast from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and several restaurants will feature outdoor dining throughout the day.
