Essex Day Festival Car Show

We are excited to announce the Essex Day Festival Car Show! We will have trophies for the following categories:

*Best Truck
*Best Jeep
*Best Bike
*Best Car
*Most Modified Vehicle
*Most Original Vehicle
*1st Place Overall
*2nd Place Overall
*Best Interior
*Best Engine Bay

Car entry is $15. Cars, Trucks, Jeeps and motorcycles are all welcome!!! Vehicles can begin to arrive as early as 9:30 am on Essex Day, 9/21. We will start registering cars at 10:00 am. There will be dash plaques for the first 75 participating vehicles.

Judging for this event will be done by having spectators pick up a judging sheet at the registration table on their way into the car show area, each person fills out their name on top of the sheet and can only vote once! On the sheet you will find the categories listed above, please write the vehicle number you have selected for each category as your favorite choice.

We are doing crowd choice judging for this show instead of randomly selected judges to allow the people of Essex and surrounding areas to become a part of the event. We are expecting huge turnouts of spectators so this should make for some very interesting, exciting judging!

The car show will be held next to the Mace / Eastern intersection.

Any questions please feel free to give Scott Smith a call at 410-978-3529!
