With many traditional summer events canceled throughout the New Hampshire because of coronavirus concerns, the staff at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire want all to know it will show up on their annual classic car show next month.
The Aviation Museum’s annual Classic Car Show is set to take place on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a rain date of Sunday, July 12.
Automobiles of all makes and eras are welcome. The show is held on the grounds of the Aviation Museum, with close-up views of the action on nearby Runway 17-35 at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.
“It’s a great way to spend a summer day outside, checking out vintage vehicles while seeing old friends and making new ones,” said Jeff Rapsis, executive director of the Aviation Museum.
Trophies will be given out for the People’s Choice Award and the Museum Award. All of the registered entrants will be included in a raffle for precious prizes. A separate 50/50 raffle will be held along with a yard sale, with all proceeds to benefit the nonprofit Aviation Museum.
The event will have several food trucks. The Aviation Museum is set to remain closed to the public prior to its planned reopening on Saturday, July 18, but portable toilets will be available throughout the car show, Rapsis said.
Admission/registration is $10 per automobile entry including occupants. Car owners are asked to reach between 8 and 9:30 a.m. on the grounds of the Aviation Museum, 27 Navigator Road, Londonderry. Admission for the general public is $5 per adult; children 12 and under free. Only cash is accepted for admission fees. Visitors are requested to practice social distancing during the car show and to wear face coverings when interacting with others or viewing the vehicles.
