The Port Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 20th Annual Classic Car Show on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown historic Port Clinton. The event has been renamed the Jerry Lippus Memorial Car Show in honor of Jerry Lippus (Mr. Downtown), who organized the event in previous years before passing away in November 2007 from cancer.
Cars, trucks and bikes from virtually every era and every make will be on display on Madison Street. Proud owners will be polishing their vehicles and waxing eloquently about the history and renovations of their unique vehicles. A DJ will be playing tunes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a 50/50 drawing every hour beginning at 11 a.m. and door prizes will be awarded every hour beginning at 11:30 a.m.
In recent years, the shows have hosted an average of over 150 cars and trucks. Vehicle registration is $10 with a portion of the registration fees being donated to the Port Clinton 4th of July Fireworks and Main Street Port Clinton in honor of Jerry Lippus. Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 cars at check-in. For those who register and pay before June 30, there will be a free t-shirt.
