In addition to cars and trucks, there will be food and merchandise vendors, a kid’s zone with a bounce house and activities, live music and a trophy presentation at the end of the day.
“We are really excited for this year’s show,” said Dan Barner, car show committee chairperson. “It’s always a great event that brings people downtown to support our businesses and it is an important fundraiser to support the excellent work that the Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association does. We’re doing our very best to make it extra special this year in celebration of the show’s 20th anniversary.”

Stewart’s Shops announces its milk has been named the best in New York state by the Cornell University Department of Food Science.
The award was presented on Dairy Day, Sept. 1, at the New York State Fair in Syracuse. The recognition is part of Cornell’s New York State Milk Quality Improvement Program.
Cornell University collected samples from New York state plants in October and May. The samples of whole milk, 2 percent, 1 percent, and fat free milk were scored on various criteria, including best flavor. Milk samples are judged on microbial analyses, fat determination, freezing point and flavor.
Stewart’s works with 20 local dairy farms to source raw milk. They pick up the milk daily, process and bottle it themselves at a manufacturing plant in Greenfield.
