The 21st Annual Park Street Classic Car Show takes place on Saturday, October 11. More than 400 classic vehicles of every description will be on display in Alameda’s historic downtown district from 10:00am to 4:00pm – antique roadsters, vintage coupes, hot rods, muscle cars, and so much more.
Most of the cars come from the magical decades of the ’50s and the ’60s, but there will also be plenty of muscle cars from the ’70s and a number of rare beauties from the ’30s and ’40s.
Park Street Classic Car Show has a lot to offer! This free event is fun for the whole family and is not to be missed. Entertainment and prizes will be available and DJs will be spinning oldies from the ’50s and the ’60s. A national representative of the Mustang Club of America even declared Park Street’s annual Classic Car Show to be “the best that he has ever seen.”
Alongside the Classic Car Show, Alameda Bicycle (1522 Park Street) will be hosting a Classic Bike Show — show off your low rider cruiser, vintage road bike, or any other bike you deem a classic.
In addition, many of the Downtown Alameda shops and restaurants will be open for business. Spectators are invited to explore the unique collection of stores and enjoy the tasty fare of the fabulous eateries. You can even test your gaming skills at Subpar Miniature Golf and High Scores Arcade Museum, catch a movie at the historic restored Alameda Theatre & Cineplex, or enjoy a live Rockabilly show reminiscent of the 50’s at Capone’s Speakeasy.
The Park Street Classic Car Show is hosted by the Crankers Car Club and is sponsored in part by PSBA members Lee Auto Supply / NAPA Auto Parts (1525 Park Street), Alameda Collision Repair (1911 Park Street), and Ole’s Waffle Shop (1507 Park Street). Without their incredible dedication to the show, this annual event would never get off the ground.
So make plans to find your way to Downtown Alameda this Saturday and enjoy the annual Park Street Classic Car Show, plus a whole lot more!
