A weekend event targeting families and car buffs will support the programs and services of the Salvation Army of Livingston County.

The Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show will be held at the Livingston County Spencer J. Hardy Airport this Saturday. The event features hundreds of classic cars as well as other vintage vehicles and motorcycles. The show is a competition with trophies awarded and is open to all makes, models and years of vehicles. Registration can be done prior or on the day or the event. All proceeds directly benefit the Salvation Army of Livingston County and help the local corps provide a wide range of programs and services year round to those in need. Major Prezza Morrison tells WHMI there will be close to 500 cars at the location and funds raised will support the Salvation Army and all of the work it does in the community. She says it’s a great event to check out classic cars, bring the family and walk around – adding they’re hoping for nice weather and so far the forecast is cooperating.

Since not everyone is a car buff, the Salvation Army will also have a shuttle service running between three different locations for those who might not want to hang out all day at the car show. The car show runs from 10am to 3pm Saturday and Morrison says a Salvation Army shuttle van will run continuously between the car show, the Tanger Outlet Mall and the nearby Antique Outlet so people can park in any of those locations and be transported to another.
