Chatham-Kent Classic Car Events Return for 2023

They are back and this summer promises to be an exciting year for Classic Car enthusiasts . Even those of us who do not have classic cars or are not directly involved are in for some great entertainment in our area this summer. I believe we have all missed some of the great Chatham-Kent events in the last couple years, the comraderie and the fun associated with these great gatherings. Chatham is the Classic Car Capital of Canada and has its fair share of events celebrating this throughout the summer.
The first event to kick-off this season is Chatham Rims and Ribs which will take place this coming weekend, May 26-28It begins on Friday night from 3-7 P.M. with the Old Gen/New Gen Parking Lot Party Entertainment at the DCC Mall and continues Saturday from 9-5 P.M. King St. will be closed off and the proud owners of the Classic Cars attending will line the street for spectators to enjoy viewing and talking to their owner about their prize possessions. Sample the great food, especially the Ribs. Sunday, starting at 9A.M. there will be a Soap Box Derby on William St. until 2 P.M. and at 6:30 P.M. a Pit Party at the Sons of Kent. This is a ticketed event so get your tickets today. Don't miss the fun. See you there!
