A large area of green grass will be filled with colour when vintage, classic, custom, and modified cars, roll into the Orangeville Fall Fair for the Cruisin’ on the Midway Classic Car Show.
The annual event will take place on the Saturday of the popular Fall Fair.
Each year auto enthusiasts from around the region and even farther places in Ontario come to Orangeville to put their cars and trucks on display and talk to the visitors who stroll along the lines of vehicles near the midway.
This car show has a real element of extra excitement as you are surrounded by the sounds of people having fun and the music on the carnival rides. What better way to spend a day than to enjoy a full festival atmosphere and get to see a lot of great cars and trucks.
Organizer David Murphy of MacMaster Buick GMC said he expecting between 150 and 200 vehicles to arrive for the event.
“It’s a good size show,” Mr. Murphy said. “We have quite a few awards for the vehicles. We welcome classic cars, custom cars, trucks, we even had some 70’s vans last year. We had the Smokey and the Bandit Police replica last year and the Smokey and the Bandit Trans-am. They all dress for the part like in the movie. We encourage all classic cars to come.”
Drivers can arrive and are asked to register their cars and trucks for the show so they can be part of the judging.
There is a community choice award, a Fair Board award, a police award, and a town council award.
The community choice award allows members of the public to vote on their favourite vehicle in the show.
For the kids there is the Hagerty Insurance kid’s choice award. Kids get a special package and they can go around to the different vehicles, talk to the owners, and make their decision on their favourite car or truck.
The Orangeville Fall Fair will take place the Agricultural Centre on the Labour Day long weekend, Friday, August 30, to Sunday, September 1.
The Cruisin’ on the Midway Classic Car show will take place on Saturday, August 31, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
