Rolling Antiquers, BID Cruise-In usher in Memorial Day Weekend

NORWICH – For many, the long Memorial Day weekend means the official start to summer – barbecues, parades, and of course, the start of auto show season. That tradition continues this weekend as the 50th annual Rolling Antiquers Auto Show and Flea Market rolls into the fairgrounds in Norwich.

Gates will open at 8 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday and will close at 5 p.m. both days. Cost of admission is $5 – a price that’s remained the same for years, according to Rolling Antiquers President Sewain Conklin – and people can expect the same family-fun atmosphere the event is known for.

“I think there’s growing optimism about the weather this weekend. Whenever there’s good weather, we always see a big turnout,” said Conklin. In spite of last year’s unseasonably cold weather, the show still brought more than 6,000 people. Hopes this year are to see that number jump to 10,000, added Conklin. “We get people from all over the northeast and sometimes further. People travel quite a ways for this show.”
