NORWICH – The long Memorial Day weekend of course means a time to honor those who have served, but it also ushers in the traditional start of the summer season with barbecues, parades and two annual automobile spectacles set to kick-off Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Thousands of automobile enthusiasts and classic car buffs are expected to turn out to the Chenango County Fairgrounds this weekend as the 48th annual Rolling Antiquers Auto Show and Flea Market takes to the field east of the fairgrounds grandstand. This is a chance for car lovers to show off their pride and joy, or shop for that one-of-a-kind car part needed to transform their vintage jalopy into an artful delicacy on wheels.
The two-day event kicks-off with a modified car and hot rod show on Saturday and continues with the antique and collectable car show on Sunday. Gates are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, with a $5 admission fee per individual; $10 to enter a vehicle. As per Antique Automobile Club regulations, no vehicle built post 1988 will be eligible to register for Sunday’s show. Car buffs can register their vehicle any time during the event both days.
