The Newtown Business Association is bringing the Antique & Classic Car Cruise to the people again this year on Saturday afternoon, June 20th in the form of a caravan of classic and antique cars and trucks, model years up through 1996, in Newtown Borough and Township.
This event should be a welcome diversion during this seemingly endless time of limited gathering and social distancing and will allow people to watch the parade of “Cool Cars” from the comfort and safety of their front lawns.
In previous years, the NBA held the Classic & Antique Car Show was typically held on State Street in Newtown Borough.
Vehicles will assemble at a staging area, where a panel of judges will award winners of “Best in Class” in five categories: Pre-1959, 1960-1969, 1970-1979, 1980-1996, Foreign cars up through 1996, and Special Interest through 1996 (as approved by the event chairs.)
After judging is complete, at approximately 2:00pm, participating cars and trucks will “take the show to the people” in downtown Newtown and through a few larger neighborhoods nearby, including Newtown Place, Newtown Crossing and Newtown Grant.
The route will be publicized and available on the website so that people will know when and where to watch for the cruise!
The event will also be live on the NBA Facebook page!
Interested car owners must pre-register online at www.NewtownBA.org; no walk-ins will be admitted the day of the event.
Participants will be limited to the first 100 registered cars and trucks.
Registration per vehicle is a minimum $10 donation, with an option for a $25 or $50 contribution, with all proceeds going to the Wrightstown Food Cupboard, a local food pantry located at Penns Park United Methodist Church.
The deadline to register online is June 11th at www.NewtownBA.org.
