Antique car show in Decatur
Decatur, Ala. – Hundreds of vintage beauties will make their way to the River City July 13 for a day of festival fun in the heart of Point Mallard Park.
The annual Greater Tennessee Valley Antique Car Show has grown to be one of the largest car shows in the region attracting collectors, fans, and spectators from across the southeastern United States and beyond. Along with antique vehicles, the event features a huge Swap Meet, live entertainment, arts and crafts, and an assortment of food vendors.
For the past 25 years, hundreds of antique cars and trucks from as far away as New Hampshire have made their way to Point Mallard Park for the Car Show. As spectators admire the antique cars and trucks and mingle with the owners, live music and an arts and crafts show are slated from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Set to perform throughout the day on Saturday are the Fairlanes and Alaina Wiley. Featuring old parts and memorabilia, the Swap Meet is popular with collectors and classic automotive enthusiasts and will be open throughout the day on Saturday.
Registration is $25 per vehicle and the first 500 entries will receive a dash plague. This year’s prizes for exhibitors include $8,000 cash, a Chevrolet 350 engine, four sets of Chrome Wheels, free and discounted oil changes, and $50 gift certificates toward tires or wheels.
Admission is free for spectators. Sponsors are Lynn Layton Chevrolet, Family Security Credit Union, and Minor Tire and Wheel, and event organizers extend a special thank you to Decatur Parks and Recreation for allowing the Car Show to be held at Point Mallard Park.
