ALAMEDA -- This marks the 20th year for the Park Street Classic Car Show in Alameda, and organizers say that the free event will include more than 400 vintage vehicles -- antique roadsters, coupes, hot rods and muscle cars -- and plenty of fun.
A large number of the classic cars set to be on display during Saturday's event are from the 1950s and 1960s, and muscle cars from the 1970s along with fun four-wheelers from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s will also be shown. The event also features entertainment such as DJs spinning oldies and prizes.
For those looking to enjoy some two-wheeled fun, Alameda Bicycle is hosting a classic bike show. Community members are invited to show off their lowrider cruisers, vintage road bikes and other classics in the area by the shop at 1522 Park St.
In addition, Gary Francis Fine Art Gallery, which just opened its doors, will share the exhibit "Transported," which creatively celebrates cars, trains, motorcycles, bikes and other modes of movement. The art show opens from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at 1419 Park St.
The Park Street Classic Car Show is hosted by the Crankers Car Club and sponsored by Lee Auto Supply/NAPA Auto Parts, Alameda Collision Repair and the Park Street Business Association. Duane Watson, of Lee Auto Supply, is chairing the event. Pets in need of water during the event can drop by Dog Bone Alley, the official watering station for four-legged visitors during the event.
Alameda residents who would like one of their vehicles to appear in the car show can go on a waiting list for the event. Contact the Park Street Business Association at 510-523-1392 and be sure to show up at 7 a.m. Saturday.
