Mean machines meet at the "Spring Fever Car Show"
The Niles Merchants Association once more invites the community to show off their best machines at the Niles "Spring Fever Car Show." No car is too old or new! Between 300 to 350 vehicles are expected at the annual event that is a must for car lovers.
The day kicks off with a pancake breakfast at 6 a.m. in front of the Merchants' train car in the parking lot across from J Street. For just $5 early risers can get a good start to their day, courtesy of the Niles Merchants Association and United Neighborhood Outreach. For those interested in dining later in the day hot dogs, polish dogs, drinks, and other treats will be available, or attendees can try out food from the various Niles restaurants.
Live jazz music will be playing in the town plaza beginning at 10 a.m. and running throughout the day. Car-related vendors will be on hand and souvenir T-shirts will be available at the Merchants' booth in front of Fremont Bank on Niles Boulevard. Try your luck at a 50/50 raffle (must be present to win) or stroll through the great Niles stores open for your shopping pleasure.
Awards will be presented in the town plaza by 2:30 p.m. Make sure to stick around for the fun ceremony to see who wins for Best Paint Job, Best Primer, Best White Walls, and Best Chick Magnet.
There is still time to participate; for $30 you can register your vehicle up until the day of the event. Participants must have their vehicles registered by 9 a.m. No early departures, please. Also note that any vehicle parked at the event location without a registration is subject to immediate tow at the vehicle owner's expense. Applications can be found at www.nilesmerchants.com by clicking on Event Reservations.
This is an entertaining day for the whole family with all proceeds going to help fund the annual Niles Christmas Parade. For additional information, call (510)792-8023.
