If you like old-fashioned classics like a 57’ Chevy or a 63’ Corvette, then you’ll love what we have in store for you! The Mayor of Brownsville, Borough Council and the Brownsville Area Revitalization Corporation (BARC) have teamed up to bring you the 2010 Brownsville Car Show, in conjunction with the Brownsville Annual Community Festival. This exciting event will take place on Saturday, August 7th in downtown Brownsville between the Flatiron Building on Market Street and Fiddle’s Diner on Water Street from 10:30AM-4:00PM
During the car show, a variety of proud owners will showcase their shiny rides for those who enjoy these timeless classics. Currently, we are welcoming additional owners to participate in this event. We invite all models and makes and encourage individuality. For those who are interested in entering their wheels into the car show, we also encourage you to partake in our community parade at 10:30AM, which will serve as the grand opening for this all-day festival.
Following the parade, the 2nd Annual Mon Ducky Race will take place at 1:30PM at the Brownsville Riverside Wharf. Once the race has concluded and the winning prizes have been awarded, the 2010 Brownsville Car Show awards will be given at 2:00PM. In addition to these highlighted events, the community festival will also feature an array of activities, booths and entertainment throughout the entire day. Although all good things must come to an end, Brownsville has found a way to close this day with excitement, with a live performance by “Refuge” from 2-4PM.
In its first year, the Brownsville Annual Community Festival is a collaborative effort between the Mayor of Brownsville, Borough Council and BARC. BARC is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to achieve economic development through historic preservation, heritage tourism, outdoor recreation, community stewardship, education, youth advancement and the arts.
If you would like to enter a car in the car show, please contact Charlie Perkins at 724-984-0303. For more information regarding this community event, please contact the BARC office at 724-785-9331.
