Here are this week's Central Ohio Car events. This will be the last big Saturday of events for this season.
News and Notes:
The Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show in Marysville on Friday evening registered 38 cars and raised $240 for local charities. October award winners were Jimmy Carmean with a 1950 Ford Tudor, Gilbert Meyers with a 1958 Hotrod Short Bus, and Chris Fannin with a 1957 Chevy Pickup.
The Empty Pockets Cruisers hosted their annual Trunk or Treat Car Show at the Hilliard Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon. The show registered 154 cars. Once again there was a great turnout of kids for the trunk or treat part of the show. The only disappointment was the absence of the Ohio Zombie Guard due to the health issues of one of its members.
The special award winners Saturday were:

Jim Cooper reports that the Grace Point Church Car Show in Lewis Center had an excellent turnout for a first-time show. The church registered 102 cars. The church presented Best of Show, Pastor's Choice, and Top 20 awards. Jim says there's plenty of room for the show to grow if the church decides to host it again next year.
I was a little surprised to see several more events announced last week. Check out the Save the Dates for 2020 page for a list of shows and cruise-ins through the end of the year.
A much lighter schedule this week as the 2020 season starts to wind down.
Looking forward, next Saturday (October 17) has 10 events so far on the schedule. After that, things start to taper off dramatically as the season comes to a close.
News and Notes:
I received an email this week from a reader that there will be a Powell Cruise-In and Pig Out this year. It won't be a downtown show as in past years. It will be held in the empty field just west of Auto Assets. The show is scheduled for Sunday, October 25, and is limited to 100 vehicles so you must register ahead of time. This link will take you to the registration form.
Colo's Classic Car Show on Saturday at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium was 100 short of my prediction of 1000 registered cars. Despite missing the thousand mark, it still ends up being the largest car event in central Ohio this year.
Saturday's show also marked the 600th event for the Pepsi Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride series. Congratulations to Boots and his team for achieving this big milestone!
The Hot Rods and Handlebars show Saturday evening at AD Farrows in Sunbury, Ohio got some glowing reviews. Someone posted on Facebook that it was one of the best shows they had been to all year.
A few trunk or treat events popped up this week. Check out the Save the Dates for 2020 page for a list of shows and cruise-ins through the end of the year.
