HARTFORD — The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower will play host to a classic and custom car show from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29.
Participants can bring their classic, antique or other cars to the tower for the first evening car cruise. Enjoy a soda, hot dog and chips provided by the Friendship General Baptist Youth Group.
The first 50 cars registered will receive a commemorative souvenir and a free tower tour. Admission to the cruise is free. Tower tour admission rates apply.
“It’s always exciting to see the classic cars out and about in the summer,” said Deanna Barnes, special projects manager for the village of Hartford. “You get to see the result of the hard work and dedication that owners put into these cars. A lot of classic cars you see being driven around started as old, broken-down frames of cars way past their prime, but with the care and passion the owners put into them, they become this really beautiful work of art. The same goes for the custom cars. These are car lovers who just want to share and spread their knowledge.”
The tower is open seven days per week. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Tours are $4 for adults, $3 for adults older than 62, veterans and active military, $2 for children and children younger than 2 are free.
