The 3rd Annual Antique Vehicle Show at the Hanover Harvest Festival was a tremendous success for exhibitors and patrons alike!
As part of the Hanover Harvest Festival, the Hanover Historical Society sponsors the Car Show for this wonderful yearly community event.
For 2013, we moved the event to the corner of 5th St. and C.R. 19 - just North of the Fire Station.
We changed it around a little too - opening the event up to ANY TYPE of antique or classic vehicle or engine, and gave away trophies.
We would like to thank:
O'Reilly Auto Parts - St. Michael branch and store manager Ryan Suckow supplied all the trophies!
Di-Mon Graphics - Diane Ingalls helped us out big-time by supplying screen printing services for the event t-shirts!
Local Boy Scout Troop 563 - they supplied great food and refreshments the day of the event!
Here's some photos from this fun event over the years:
