Bring Your Vehicle to the Lincoln Hwy 100th Birthday Bash Car Show


vanbuerplazaAll kinds of vehicles (maybe even a bicycle or two!) are welcome to participate on Saturday, May 18th beginning at 6:00 p.m. for an evening car show in the Frank Van Buer Plaza on the corner of Locust and N. 2nd Street in DeKalb. This Lincoln Highway 100th Birthday Bash Car Show will be unusual. There is no entry fee and winners will be chosen by popular choice by the audience of the special music concert at the Egyptian Theatre beginning at 7:30 pm. Trophies will be handed out on stage at the Egyptian immediately following the concert by the Irish-American Band, Switchback.

The evening car show is timed so that participants in the Second Annual Lincoln Highway Car Show in Franklin Grove earlier in the day can travel and attend both car shows!
