It is always so nice to see people turn out in such great numbers for this special Annual Classic Car Event and the first of many in Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas for 2024. King St. is closed and if you have never attended, you will love the buzz of the crowds and all the sights to take in. Visitors are able to get a close up look at these special cars dating back to 1990 and earlier and talk to the proud owners who are more than willing to share the history of their prize possessions. Make plans to attend and invite your out of town friends and family. They will love it!
