9 am to 4 pm
Mark your calendar Labor Day weekend Saturday August 31, 2013 for the 48th annual Duryea Day antique and classic car show and flea market in the scenic Boyertown Community Park. Duryea Day’s prime sponsor is National Penn Investors Trust Company. National Penn Investors Trust Company has been generously helping to back this popular community event for a number of years.
Exciting sights and sounds will fill Boyertown Community Park on Saturday. Here you will find a wonderful array of antique and classic vehicles. Names like Franklin, Oldsmobile, Peerless, Winton and Model “T” Ford are recalled in gleaming brass that shines from early antique autos. And the tall sparkling grilles between the sweeping fenders of the pre-war beauties are bound to catch your eye. Perhaps you will spot your favorite classic car from the ’50s, ’60s or ’70s. Whether you favor elegant sedans, post-war convertibles or colorful muscle cars you are bound to see them here. Some are heard before they are seen as the throbbing engines of dazzling street rods rumble through the park.
But don’t think that Duryea Day is only about cars, trucks and motorcycles! A variety of tasty food choices will be served by various vendors in the park. You can also sit back and enjoy the free music provided by live bands performing during the day.
Shoppers will enjoy a flea market filled with merchandise as varied as auto parts and literature, handcrafts, antiques and household treasures to capture the heart of the bargain hunter. And the Car Corral provides a marketplace for buying and selling collector vehicles of every description.
Museum’s Choice Awards will be given for: Pre-War Antique Car, Post-War Antique, Car, Antique Truck, Antique Modified, Antique Motorcycle and Antique Sports Car.
Admission to Boyertown Park for Duryea Day will be $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 6-12. Remember the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles will have free admission to Pennsylvania’s transportation history museum.
