Another big week of events. Unfortunately, the weather forecast doesn't look good towards the end of the week.
The Arthritis Foundation has announced the dates for next year's Classic Auto Show in Dublin, Ohio. The show has been moved up a week to June 27, 28, and 29, 2019. Good Guys and the Arthritis will now be on separate weekends and won't be competing against each other. I think this is good news for car show enthusiasts.
Another jam packed week of events, especially on Saturday.
A new feature has been added to the Upcoming Events posts. A 5-day weather forecast for Central Ohio is now available at the end of the list of events. The weather display will automatically update in realtime. This feature provides a quick glance at the forecast for any events you're interesting in attending.
Several shows that were rescheduled due to last weekend's bad weather are adding to an already full slate of events in Central Ohio this week.
Several weeks back I received questions as to why I did not include the Exotics on Scioto Mile in the list of Upcoming Events. I responded that the show required pre-registration and therefore no one could drive up on the day of the show and register to participate. Well, I received feedback that this list is not only used by car show participants, but also by car show spectators. Therefore, I've included Rally for the Ranch on the list this week for those who want to go as a spectator even though registration is currently closed.
Looks to be a good week of shows and cruise-ins in Central Ohio. The biggest event of the week will be the 2nd Annual Performance Classic Car Show (formerly Blast from the Past) in Delaware, Ohio. Last year the show registered 450 vehicles. I anticipate attendance will be around the same or better this year.
We have a rare occurrence on Friday evening where two Chevrolet dealers will host competing events. Jack Maxton Chevrolet will hold their July Friday Night Cruisin'. At the same time Chesrown Chevrolet, Buick, GMC will hold it's 3rd annual Friday Night Cruise prior to the downtown Delaware show. I haven't made up my mind which event I'll attend. Check in next week to find out which one I pick.
A reader sent me an email that Chesrown will not be holding the Friday Night Cruise this year prior to the downtown Delaware show. I contacted the dealership and they confirmed that this year's event is cancelled and will hopefully resume next year.
Thunderstorms are preventing electrical hook-up at Jack Maxton. Friday's cruise-in has been postponed until next Friday (7-27-18)
With a mid-week 4th of July celebration, the 36th Annual Arthritis Classic Car Show, and the 21st Goodguys PPG Nationals on the schedule for the weekend, there's no question this is biggest week of the season for Central Ohio car shows. Every car enthusiast should be able to find something to attend this weekend. Here's hoping the weather cooperates.
The first Jack Maxton All Chevy show of the season will be This Friday. Saturday has another good selection of shows to choose from. The only event in the area I could find on Sunday (Father's Day) is the rescheduled On The Rocks Spring Show.
