One of the last car shows for the season in the Capital Region is right here in Mariaville. This year it is Saturday, October 1st, 9am-2pm and is not to be missed! You don’t have to be a car enthusiast, or know a lot about cars to enjoy this event. It’s fun just to see the variety, all the colors and designs, and especially, for me anyway, the vintage cars. I particularly enjoying peering into them, imagining what sort of person drove it, where they went, what they wore, how they felt. That is one of my favorite things about antiques, creating a past for them in my mind. Also, I listen to CarTalk on the NPR app every week, so, actually, I do know an awful lot about cars (of course)!
This event is free (score!) and besides exhibiting classic cars, will also have food and music. Last year we had about 50 cars from many different eras. A lot of towns have car shows, some places even have weekly ones during the summer. What makes this car show different? I’ll tell you what makes it different. It is in Mariaville! One of the most serene, magical lakeside villages around. While you are entertained with music, cars and shoving your face with food, you can gaze out on the lake. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day and welcome autumn!
