The Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association (BSBPA) announced plans for the 19th annual “The Way We Were” car show to be held Sunday, Oct. 10, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Front Street in Ballston Spa.
The rain date will be Oct. 17.
The event is free to spectators.
“We are delighted to be back together again in downtown Ballston Spa after having to go virtual last year due to COVID,” said Donna Dardaris of the BSBPA who serves on the car show’s leadership team. “We invite the public to come stroll our historic village, check out the hundreds of cars and trucks on display, and enjoy the live music, vendors and downtown businesses. It’s a great day for the whole family.”
Front Street will be blocked off from Milton Avenue past the Old Iron Springs to accommodate car exhibits and vendors. In addition to food and merchandise vendors, the show will again feature a Kids Zone, located by the Old Iron Springs, which will feature free children’s activities.
The car show is a judged event and several trophies will be awarded, including Best of Show, Mayor’s Choice, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Stock, Oldest Vehicle plus the top three in specified categories.
Judging begins at 9 a.m. with trophies awarded at 3:30 p.m.
Exhibitors can pre-register by Sept. 30 for $15 per car or $20 the day of show.
All proceeds will benefit BSBPA community activities.
Dash plaques will be given to the first 400 cars registered and the first 200 cars registered will receive car show goodie bags.
