Antique auto show, Judy Collins concert kicks off the summer season
Car enthusiasts can watch over 300 vintage vehicles parade down the Ocean City Parkway at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 26.
The procession will close the 66th Annual Dave Blyler and Herb Godfrey Antique and Classic Automobile Show and Parade.
Prior to the parade, the vintage cars – all aged 25 or older – will be on display on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle at 550 Wesley Avenue from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The show provides a great opportunity for shopping in the city center or taking a break on the beach and on the promenade to check out these classic cars. Visit jerseycape.aaca.com for more information.
Tickets are still available for a June 28 concert featuring Judy Collins with special guest Richard Thompson.
The show is part of the 2021 summer concert series on the Ocean City Music Pier, which opened on Monday with a sold-out performance by the Led Zeppelin tribute group Get the Led Out.
Legendary singer-songwriter Judy Collins has lent her iconic voice to an impressive array of genres over her five-decade career – from her beloved folk work to acclaimed forays into rock and show tunes.
Richard Thompson is the opening act. He first rose to prominence in the late 1960s as the lead guitarist and songwriter of the folk rock band Fairport Convention.
