Upcoming Car Shows

August 28th, 2011 by Sam Feldman

Well, I write this to the sights and sounds of all the great VW bugs and buses that have been in town all this past weekend. We had a blast watching them from our front porch with some great guests, who collected lots of candy and Mardi Gras beads! It made us start looking forward to the next car show, which is one of my favorites, the Antique Auto Festival – in its 41st year! Coming September 9 & 10th, it’s sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, and event details include hundreds of vintage classics competing for prizes and trophies. Includes a car show with  the parade, which of course – goes right by our front porch! The 1922 Bank Robbery re-enactment follows directly after the antique car parade; re-creating the first time an automobile was used as a getaway vehicle in a bank robbery. That is always loads of fun and no bystanders have ever been shot yet {grin}.

From Bridgeford House B& B Front PorchThe first weekend in October has the Carroll County Cruisers Open Car Show. And by far one of the most exciting is the Annual Corvette weekend, October 6-9, their 21st time in Eureka! Gorgeous ‘vettes will be everywhere, both new and restored. This show is so big they used to run the parade only at night time. Now you just get to see them all over town.

October 20-23 will see all the Mini-Coopers arriving. I love the minis – just the right size for Sophie to drive! Very colorful and of course, easy to drive around Eureka’s skinny and windy streets. Fall color should be hitting just right about that time.

So come enjoy the cars without the car maintenance bills! There’s always something going on in Eureka Springs, AR!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
