JUNE 14, 2008 Flag Day Classic Car Show
Remember the following event if you are making plans for that weekend. We have several events ongoing on the
Courthouse Square here in Huntsville that Saturday. For starters we have a parade beginning on 15th Street and continuing down University toward the Square.
The lead will be taken by the Boy Scout Honor Guard marching with the flags followed by the 1949 Firetruck and the Mayor J.Turner. Then our Grand Marshall will be Harold Hutcherson, the Main Street Manager without whom we would not be venturing out to sponsor an event of any kind on the Square where we all do business. Business has been so bad this year so far we are hoping to increase the awareness of what is available here in downtown to the public with these events.
Following Hutch will be the various car clubs with their old classic cars.
After the parade has ended on the Square the classic cars will be moved into their place for the show which will last from 10 am to 3:30pm when the awarding of trophies will take place.
Most activities are set around the gazebo.
At 11 am there will be the 1950's Style show with authenic 50's attire. I will do the narrating with clothing from my antique vintage clothing boutique adjoining my store. Models are greatly needed at this time as most of the college students are already out for the summer. I plan to have approximately 20 models with business attire, leisure attire, prom dresses and dinner jacketed boys, poodle skirts and boys in daily attire clothing, plus a bride and groom in 50's wedding dress, and ending with a Marilyn Monroe lookalike and Elvis lookalike.
There will be hot dogs and cokes and hoola hoop, dance and costume contests for the public.
We will have a DJ playing 50's music from 10 am to 4pm. Lots of activities on the downtown square available.
The Gibbs Powell Museum house a block away from the Square will be serving a 50's menu meal at noontime for $ 5.00 including dessert. Included in that price will be a tour of the 1850's house. The meal will be served in the antebellum dining room or to go. The last event when they did this they served so many they ran out of food after serving about 150 guests.
This is a chance to live like the ancestors you wished you had had or pretend to be Scarlett.
There are many historical houses in Huntsville.
