Quakertown Cruisin' Alive Classic Car Show
Autumn Alive returned to Quakertown, Pennsylvania on October 6th and a new feature this year was the Cruisin' Alive Classic Car Show-- in association with the First Pennsylvania Mustang Club-- and a not-to-be-missed line-up of musical performers. Over 200 vehicles manufactured in 1982 or before will line Front and Broad Streets from Hellertown to Fourth Avenue. Ten People's Choice and Specialty Awards were presented to cars at the end of the show.
We had the honor of sponsoring the Bux-Mont Awards Sponsors Choice Award at the First Annual Quakertown Alive Car Show. The photo below is the winner. This 1960 BelAir was in pristine condition inside and out. Among the cars that were at the show, we thought this one deserved the trophy the most. The car looks like it hasn't been driven since 1960, I mean the thing was literally in immaculate shape.
The weather was gorgeous on Saturday, with early morning fog clearing, and many car enthusiasts took the opportunity to visit downtown Quakertown; enjoying a fun filled, warm October day. There were a variety of booths set up and all kinds of activities from free massage to face painting. The Quakertown Police Department was even there fingerprinting children as a safety precaution in case they were to ever get kidnapped. Rounding out the event were planned activities ranging from a local authors booksigning to an improv groups performance along Main St.
This event was one to be truly enjoyed by all, and it is just one of great events put on by the Quakertown Alive Organization. Quakertown Alive was founded in 1998 to create strong broad-based partnerships that provide the leadership and resources necessary for a successful revitalization effort in downtown Quakertown, PA, resulting in an enhanced quality of life for all in and around the Borough.
