Upcoming Central Ohio Car Events for October 5 – 11

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.

      Sorry, I didn't make it Colo's Classic this year. If you're looking for photos from the show, there are several posts on the Ohio Car Shows and Cruise-Ins Facebook group. You've got to be a member of the group to access the photos, however. As far as winners, I have not been able to find that info posted anywhere.

    Just got back from the Grace Point Car Show (this was our church when we lived in Powell). This was their first year, and they registered 102 cars. It was a pretty good show - especially good for the first year doing it. Lots of high-quality cars, all years/makes models were on display.

    They also have room to grow,should they choose to use the grassy areas around the parking lot (The Church has about 10 acres). They gave away a Best in Show, Pastors Choice and Top 20. Hopefully Terry and company continue it next year.

      Hi Jim, Thanks for the report on the Grace Point show. If you don't mind, I will include it in this week's upcoming events post.
