The annual Rollin’ on the River charity car show will once again roll into town.
The event will be from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, July 23, at Fernbank Park, 50 Thornton Ave. in Sayler Park.
The event is one of the oldest charity car shows, said founder and co-chairman Al Duebber, adding that a primary reason for its popularity is the wide selection of vehicles on display.
Antique, classic, sport and muscle cars will be featured. Anything from “brass era” collectibles to modern era vehicles is on display, Duebber said. “People will see cars they have never seen before.”
The show is also known for its Corvettes and Mustangs, he said.
Among the attractions this year will be a 1913 Model T Ford.
From 400 to 500 cars may be featured during a given year with attendance ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 people.
Duebber said a focus of the car show remains the schools the proceeds are given to. The proceeds go to area schools including those in the Oak Hills Local School District, St. Dominic School, Sayler Park School, Our Lady of Victory School and a number of others.
“Youth is our priority,” Duebber said.
Since the car show began 28 years ago, nearly $ 500,000 has been raised.
A selection of food booths will be set up, and raffles will also take place.
Admission to the event is free.
Anyone who would like to feature their car can register online at www.rollinontherivercarshow.com. Registration cost is $ 20, and registration can be done in advance or on the day of the show.
