Seasonal Special Happenings

Car Show at Stan Hywet

When: Sun., June 19 2011

Whether your dad is a classic or an antique, a visit to Stan Hywet's annual Classic, Antique & Collector Car Show could be the perfect Father's Day gift. With more than 350 cars to gaze upon and admire, the show — at 54, one of the oldest in America — delivers a reminder of what we used to drive before Priuses and Escalades. Judges will be awarding prizes to the shiniest and best-looking autos from 1896 to 1978 in 25 separate classes, and the exclusive "Inner Circle" display will feature Chrysler's classic Town & Country wagons, sedans, and convertibles from the 1940s. Meantime, refreshments will be available from the Winking Lizard, and small fry can chill out with special children's activities. General admission is $12, less for children and members. It all happens from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, 714 North Portage Path in Akron; for more info, call 330-836-5533 or visit stanhywet.org. — Kerrigan
