On The Rocks Bar and Grill in Dublin, Ohio held its annual fall car show on Sunday.
In past years, the fall show has been held on the second Sunday in September. However, this year the date was changed to the first Sunday of the month.
I found out about the date change through a regular visitor to this website who sent me a message on Wednesday that the show was scheduled for Labor Day weekend. I couldn't find any announcement on oldride.com, the bar's website or it's Facebook page. Matt Herman was kind enough to send me a link to the show's flyer. I'm still waiting to hear where Matt found it.
Unfortunately, the combination of the date change and lack of promotion lead to less than 80 registered vehicles. Normally the spring and fall shows attract well over 100 vehicles.
There were still some very nice vehicles on display despite the lower than usual turn out. And as always, the money raised from the show goes to support the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.
A family wedding on Saturday left Sunday as my only day this weekend to attend a car show. A friend and I decided to stay close to home and participate in the On the Rocks Fall Car Show at Karric Square in Dublin, Ohio.
On the Rocks Bar & Grill has been holding two car shows a year, one in the spring and one in the fall, for as long as I can remember. I participated in my first On The Rocks show in September of 2012. This year marked the 9th annual Fall event. All proceeds from the spring and fall shows go to support the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
Despite perfect weather, attendance yesterday was down slightly from the spring event. The show registered 108 vehicles in comparison to 131 for the spring show.
Once again there was strong participation from several local Corvette clubs.
The central Ohio car show season kicked into high gear this weekend. There were shows in no less than seven area cities. These cities included Bellefontaine, Bucyrus, Columbus, Dublin, Marysville, Newark and Reynoldsburg. I have reports from three of the shows.
