LONDONDERRY — It's on! Get your gleaming roadster, awesome muscle car, or partially restored jalopy over to the Aviation Museum of N.H., where once a year the spotlight shines on vehicles that don't leave the ground—usually!
The Aviation Museum's annual Classic Car Show takes place on Sat., July 11 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. (Rain date is Sun., July 12.)
Vehicles of all makes and eras are welcome, including odd or unusual vehicles. It's a great chance for proud owners to show off their completed projects or works in progress, and for the public to check out some amazing rides from all over the region.
The show is held on the grounds of the Aviation Museum, with close-up views of the action on nearby Runway 17-35 at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.
"It's a great way to spend a summer day outside, checking out vintage vehicles while seeing old friends and making new ones," said Jeff Rapsis, executive director of the Aviation Museum.
Trophies will be given out for the People's Choice Award and the Museum Award. All registered entrants will be included in a raffle for valuable prizes. A separate 50/50 raffle will be held as well as a yard sale, with all proceeds to benefit the non-profit Aviation Museum.
The event will have several food trucks. The Aviation Museum will remain closed to the public prior to its planned re-opening on Saturday, July 18, but portable toilets will be available during the Car Show.
Admission/registration is $10 per vehicle entry plus occupants. To facilitate orderly set-up, owners are asked to arrive between 8 and 9:30 a.m. at the grounds of the Aviation Museum, 27 Navigator Road, Londonderry, N.H. Admission for the general public is $5 per adult; children 12 and under free. Admission is cash only.
Visitors are requested to practice social distancing during the Car Show, and to wear face-covering when mingling with others or viewing the vehicles.
