That fall crisp is in the air which means it is almost time for our Car Show! This will be the 7th year that the Beacon Chamber of Commerce and the Dutchess County Cruisers will come together to provide a fabulous car show to you right here on Main Street in Beacon.
Last year, over 300 cars were registered and Main Street saw over 5,000 visitors! The show will be held on Main Street from 12 pm – 4 pm. While the street may be closed from Cross Street (by Hudson Beach Glass) to Rt. 52 (by the Yankee Clipper), many businesses will be open and ready for business! The Chamber is offering a coupon that local businesses can advertise in to be distributed to visitors. To be included in the book is only $50 for Chamber members with a chance to highlight your business or offer a Car Show Day discount.
If you are looking to enter your car, registration is from 8 am -12 pm and will take place on the West End of Main Street (coming in from the 9D side by the Beacon Police Station). Trophies to be awarded at 3:30 pm in multiple categories including Best in Show and Drivers Choice.
We are thankful to have Healy Brothers returning as our premier sponsor again this year. We would also like to thank our additional sponsors: Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency, Freedom Ford, Max’s on Main, Baja 328 Tequila Bar Southwest Grill, Hometown Deli, Leo’s Restaurant, Brother’s Trattoria, Notion’s and Potions, and Libby’s Funeral Home.
There will be lots to do that day as the Beacon Farmer's Market and Beacon Flea will be open (on Veteran's Place and Henry Street by the Post Office) as well as the Sloop Club's Pumpkin Festival taking place at Waterfront Park. Side street and municipal parking will be available. Rain date is 10/22.
