Let’s go to the Car Show! Please join me for the 5th annual Cruisin’ the 50’s event on Thursday, August 17th from 5 – 8 PM in downtown Newburyport. Most of the cars will be on State, Pleasant, Unicorn, and Inn Streets but other streets will also have show-cars.
I have always loved hot rods, rat rods and muscle cars. Works of art on wheels! The wheels are beautiful too! This is a great opportunity to take photographs and capture images of rare cars.
You won’t want to miss this event: it’s possibly the last car show in Newburyport since the sponsor of the car show was WNBP and the radio station recently was sold. (Of course, the Carriagetown Car Show in Amesbury will continue to be run by Wes Pettengill who also has been at the helm of the NBPT event.)
This event gets crowded! Wear comfortable shoes and remember that the main downtown area streets are closed to non-show cars starting at about 2pm so plan on parking and walking a bit.
Local favorites “The Transistors” will return this year to play a free outdoor concert in Market Square from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Cruisin’ the 50’s is a free event open to all. Enjoy beautiful classic cars in the picturesque historic downtown of Newburyport, MA. State Street, Pleasant Street and Inn Street will be open to pedestrians only and classic cars will also be parked on other surrounding streets as well. If necessary, the rain date for this event is Tuesday, August 29th.
