Any car shows/get togethers?

I'm still rather new to MA. My wife and I moved up here in the beginning of March, so I'm not sure what type of festivities usually go on during the summer months.

Does anyone know of any good car shows, cruise nights, or get togethers that routinely happen during the summer months? I'm close to the NH border, and I'm willin to drive 30-45 minutes to see some nice hotrods. Please let me know.

Thumbs up CAR SHOWS IN MA!!

I see you're close to the NH border and are up north.
There are 3 shows that I can think of the top of my head.
1) There is a car show in Dedham, MA @ the Dedham Estates. They have it every year with a good crowd and prizes are given to different classes for the cars.
2) There is a decent car show in Marlboro, MA on the first week of August. I forget the dates exactly, but I think it's the very first week. I went last year, but it started to POUR out, so I called it a day and cars were leaving anyways. Actually a friend of mine runs it.
3) Probably the BEST & BIGGEST car show in MA is the SUMMER NATIONALS in Worcester, MA. Around 3-5 thousand cars there. (YES, you read correctly!!) My all time favorite show around here. I've gone the last 5 years in a row now. Tons of people & cars! That show runs from July 2-5. I'll probably be there for 2 complete days of that weekend.
Hope this helps.

Every Wednesday night behind the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers is a pretty good show if the weather is good. The price is right too = $0

Day late, Just went to a shine n show at union leader in Manchester.
great turnout, except not one camaro....!
If only I had my new 2010, I could have won a trophy for the 2010 decade instantly...
But im sure they would tell me it is tech a 2009...
and i would grab a trophy and jump in my camaro and speed away laughing my fool head off.
Or maybe not..

Phil,

I didn't know about the shine & show Sunday.
I could have won!
BTW, the stripes are being put on right now, pics will be in my album tonight!

For the last 5 years we have been going to the Kiwanis Car show at the NHTI campus in Concord with our Brickyard.

This year it is in September.

Yup, I had forgot all about this union leader shine and show and my wife reminded me that day.
And Yes, you would have stole it for sure in your own division....
we should keep this thread up to date so we can hit the most car shows.
dont we have a calender for this section we can update..

So anyways, Hows that bad ass camaro going so far.
If you happen to see a truck driver gawking at you and waving....
it prob be me...
we should get a huge caravan of 2010 camaro's and drive down 93 and keep making it longer.
and all the time pretending it was all unplanned

Home at last..again

Got my baby back again.
The garage looked funny without it. :(
Raining last night; took these tonight.
Bank's will put the plate bracket in the trunk. They let the owner put it on. I'm not drilling any holes!
Bank's Collision Center also did the clear mask for $599.

I LOVE the first shot.
Notice my new T-shirt in the next. BTW smile has been there since last Wednesday.
My girls are can't decide which one is more fun; Tabitha (left) likes "Bumblebee", Virginia likes standing up in the convertible.

How does it look going over the stripes?

LadiesMan217, are you going this Thursday?
If it is raining, is it called off? I would like to check it out. I think a lot of Dodge truck guys meet up there as well on Thursdays. I belong to dodgetalk.com and read something about that. I have a Dodge Ram Daytona which I will bring with me.
The Camaro NEVER goes anywhere. lol
Thanks for the info.

If the rain holds off I'll be there...if it's raining hard though, no way.
I've never been to one, I just heard about myself this week.

Here are some upcoming events from fliers I got when I went to Cruise Night at Arnie's in Concord last night; which is every Tuesday night from 5 to 8ish. I had DOZENS of people asking tons of questions. I cannot believe how many people told me this is the first one they have seen in person.
Anyway...

June 20, Relay for Life at NHTI Concord campus from 6-8pm (Lone Wolf Cruisers)

June 21, Better Than a Tie, Harris Hill Center, 20 Maitland St, Concord, NH from 11am-1pm

July 18, South Mtn. Showdown, Lincoln Village Shops, Rt112, Lincoln, NH 8am-3pm (East Coast Camaro Club)

August 23, 28 Annual All Vehicle Show, MacMulkin Chevrolet (East Coast Camaro Club)

Sept 26, Cruise Into Fall, Join the East Coast Camaro Club with the Town of Merrimack at the Town Hall parking lot, 10-2

Hopefully, the sponsors of these events do not mind me posting these here. If I failed to mention anything, sorry, this is the info I got from the fliers.

I hope to have my Camaro5 stickers soon for these events.

For people a littler further south, there is a car show in the Walmart parking lot on Route 6 in Seekonk, MA every Sunday. Starts about 4:30/5. Usually a good turnout with a nice variety of cars.
