The South Chicago Avenue Business Alliance (SCABA) will hold its 6th-Annual Classic Car Show on Sunday, June 7, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the intersection of 48th Street and Chicago Avenue. The car show will feature a wide variety of classic cars and trucks from the 1940s through the 1980s—and even some cars older than that! Admission is free! Everyone is invited to stop by and “stroll through the past” while dreaming about the cars from yesteryear!
Street Kings Car Club of Minneapolis-St. Paul will again co-host the car show. “Last year’s car show was our best car show ever in terms of the number of cars that participated,” stated Mike Kmiecik, president of SCABA. “We had some cars displayed on Chicago Avenue for the first time, instead of just having cars on 48th Street on the east and west sides of Chicago Avenue. We like being able to spread out the car show, if we can. Hopefully, this year we’ll be able to spread it out even more.”
The car show is open to anyone who wants to exhibit their classic cars or trucks. The show will also feature a “bounce house” for kids as well as a D.J. who will be spinning classic ’50s–’80s tunes, plus a beer garden operated by Adrian’s Tavern. The “paint car” will be available again this year for the kids to turn into a “work of art” – for free! Of course, all of that will be in addition to the great restaurants and other businesses around the 48th and Chicago intersection that
will be open that day.
There is a small registration fee for each vehicle participating in the show: $10 for pre-registered vehicles; $20 for day-of-show registrations. Anyone interested in entering the car show should check out SCABA’s website at www.48chicago.org for more information.
