2nd Annual Classic Car Show Returns to the “OId Neighborhood” in Newark’s North Ward
Mt. Prospect Partnership (MPP) invites you to attend the 2nd Annual Hot Rod & Classic Car Show on Mt. Prospect Avenue in Newark’s Historic Forest Hill Neighborhood on Sunday, September 7th from 11:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m. The event is being sponsored by community partners Investors Bank, Wells Fargo and the North Ward Center. Mt. Prospect Partnership has also partnered with the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the event to help raise awareness and financial support for the fight against breast cancer. Admission is free for the general public. The rain date is September 14th.
Over $1100 in cash will be awarded. Event highlights will include a special visit by Lou “Batman” Magnifico and his amazing 1960’s replica Batmobile, a performance by singer Bobby Valli (younger brother of Frankie Valli), music provided by the Marty Hoff/Kevin Hagen Big Band orchestra plus a DJ, a variety of food and ice cream vendors plus children’s entertainment like face painters, stilt walkers, balloon artists and more.
“The Partnership has received calls from classic car owners who once lived in the area and want to be part of the event in the ‘old neighborhood,’ and we are excited to welcome them and showcase how the Partnership has helped improve the area,” noted MPP Executive Director Frank Petolino. “Last year’s event was attended by more than 2000 people from Newark and surrounding communities.”
“We look forward to welcoming community members and visitors again this year to the car show which will take place on Mt. Prospect Avenue between Delavan Avenue and Heller Parkway,” stated Michael Sheehan, President of Mt. Prospect Partnership. “For classic car owners, it’s a minimal amount ($15 pre-show/$20 day of show) for such a great event, such great prizes and for such a worthy cause.”
Petolino said the street will be closed to vehicular traffic during the event with more than 100 cars expected to participate. Absolutely no bicycles or skateboards will be allowed in the display area.
Staging of the vehicles will start on the day of the event between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Those that register early to secure specific locations must be in their assigned spots by 9:30 a.m. or they may lose those specific locations.
