Participant Information

As in years past, we accept on-site registration along with online pre-registration. On-site registration can be completed the morning of the show. We highly encourage anyone interested in attending the show to register in advance. Online registration closes Friday, September 21 at noon. On-site registration can be completed the morning of the show. Registration prior to Friday, September 21 at noon is $40. Registration after that time is $50.

Please note that the information on this page may also apply to those individuals riding as passengers of a vehicle that is registered and/or is planned on being registered for the show.

Vehicles that have pre-registered, as well as those planned on being registered on the morning of the show, should arrive between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. at City Island, 245 Championship Way, Harrisburg, PA 17101.

On the morning of the show, once participants arrive at City Island for check-in/registration, they will be parked temporarily to allow the drivers to detail their vehicles, use the restroom and eat a light breakfast.

From here, cars will be sent to downtown Harrisburg in groups of 20–30, in no particular order. The drive is 1.1 miles and will take just under 10 minutes, with only one turn (a left onto 2nd Street).

The route is shown here:

The show itself is held on State Street, Front Street, and 3rd Street, in front of the Capitol Building. The event will be open to spectators, 12 p.m.–5 p.m., and awards will be presented at 3:30 p.m.
