04-17-10 Main Street Holds Annual Car Show
On Saturday, April 17th, over 50 cars were lined up before noon in the parking lot behind the Judicial Building located on John Frank Ward Boulevard. The Main Street McDonough Program’s annual Classic and Open Car Show was gearing up for a noon start. The sun was warm, and the vehicles were glistening with hoods and trucks propped open inviting car enthusiasts to linger in admiration at each one.
The crowd was consistent throughout the afternoon, and owners could not wait to discuss their prized possessions with anyone who showed an interest in their obvious labors of love.
“This is a perfect day in McDonough for a car show,” said Main Street Director Linda Schenk. “We have so many unique and interesting cars in the show this year. I’ve seen a lot of smiling faces as they walk from car to car.”
