Classic Car Show offers music, rock wall, more

The United States Army’s 30-foot rockclimbing wall is a big hit with youngsters. It is among the many fun things to do at the Classic Car Show held at the American Legion Rockford Post Saturday, June 4.

PREPARE TO BE IMPRESSED—Classic Cars will be on display and military veterans will present awards at 3:30 p.m.

For the folks who love to admire or show off their classic cars, the Rockford American Legion Post will be the place to be Saturday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For the people who aren’t so keen on cars? Be there anyway.

With music all day, two fire trucks flying giant American flags, the United States Army’s 30-foot rock-climbing wall, a chili cook-off, Minute To Win It games for kids, a Chinese auction, Bear Claw Jack demonstrating wood carving, fantastic food specials and a blood drive, there isn’t likely to be anyone who can’t find something fun to do. The show is also an opportunity to admire the American Legion’s facility at 330 Rockford Park Drive (off Northland Drive).

If you have a hot vehicle like this, you may want to display it at the show. Registration opens at 9 a.m. For more informatioin, visit

“This should be a great day for the whole family to come out and not spend a lot of money,” said organizer Lori Vorpi. “We want to show off the new legion and perhaps garner some new members.”
