Enjoy Classic Cars at Raleigh Auto Show
The first Classics at the Capital drew an estimated 25,000 visitors to Fayetteville Street. "We received tremendous feedback from vendors, exhibitors and attendees last year and vowed to make this an annual event," says Greg Cox, one of the event's organizers. "Our goal is to make this a signature family-friendly event for Raleigh that attracts thousands of car enthusiasts from all over the Southeast. By popular demand, this year's Classics at the Capital will feature more import and custom show cars."
The festivities culminate with an awards ceremony Sunday at 2 p.m. on the Fayetteville Street Stage with awards for Top 50, Sweet 16, Best of Show in numerous categories, Longest Distance Traveled and the Sir Walter Raleigh Cup. Judging is by Southern Classic Cars of Wake Forest.
Classics at the Capital partners with the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness. The foundation promotes scientific research aimed at discovering the causes and potential cures for mental illness to develop more effective means of treatment.
All outdoor activities are free to the public. Admission to the Raleigh Convention Center is $5 per person on Friday and $10 per person on Saturday and Sunday. Visit www.classicsatthecapital.com for information about hours and a detailed schedule of events.
