Flanders, NY - September 17th, 2013 - The Friends of The Big Duck once again welcome the fall season to the East End by holding the fifth annual “Autumn Antique Auto Show at Big Duck Ranch”. Members of the non-profit group are organizing the event, which will be held on Sunday, October 6, from 9 AM - 4 PM. The rain date is Sunday, October 20.
Classic cars and trucks that are 25 years and older will be proudly displayed by their owners on the grounds of the 37½ acre park, which is the home of The Big Duck. The festivities will include raffles with lots of prizes and oldies music by Vinnie V. Each person that attends gets the chance to cast a vote for the People’s Choice Awards, which will be given to the most popular show entries toward the end of the day.
Vehicle owners may enter their car or truck in the show for $20. All vehicles are required to be registered, insured and have fire extinguishers. Spectators pay only $5. The show is free to children under 12 who are accompanied by an adult. All proceeds benefit the Friends of The Big Duck, which raises funds to further improve Big Duck Ranch. The property is also listed on the national register of historic places.
