An Amazing Berkshire County Car Show was a Big Hit (140 photos)
It was a hot night in the Berkshires on August 4 but that didn't stop the Great Barrington Fire Department from hosting their annual Main Street Car Show and what a site it was. Once again, I attended the car show in Great Barrington and there were plenty of classic cruisers lined up and down Main and Railroad Streets including street rods, muscle cars, classics, race cars, antiques, tucks, and more.

The car show started out a little bit on the light side which could have been due to the heat but also the fact that people were still at work. Once it hit about 5:30/6 pm, the crowd grew which made Great Barrington the place to be on Thursday night. One convenient aspect of the Great Barrington Fire Department's Main Street Car Show is the fact that Community Health Program's (CHP) mobile health unit was on site so people could get their boosters if they hadn't done so already. CHP provided this service at last year's Main Street Car Show and they brought it back this year which gets a thumbs up from me.
The Great Barrington Fire Department's Main Street Car Show Wouldn't Be Complete Without the Classic Tunes
Music was another aspect that gave the car show a classic feel as the Olde Yankee Street Rods supplied multiple speakers up and down Main Street, cranking out those feel-good classics from yesteryear. By the way, the Olde Yankee Street Rods have their car show coming up on Sunday, September 4 from 9 am - 3 pm at the Great Barrington VFW with a rain date of Monday, September 5.
The Proceeds from the Great Barrington Fire Department's Main Street Car Show Went to a Very Worthy Cause
Another big plus of offering this car show to the community is the fact that proceeds went toward the Great Barrington Fire Department's Scholarship Fund which benefits local youth in the community. Talk about a win for everybody.
