Editor's note: The following press release was sent by the Nyack Chamber of Commerce. The Nyack Chamber's car night is July 10th, and July 11th is "Collector Car Appreciation Day."

Nyack, NY ―The Nyack Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce that classic cars will once again roll into the center of Nyack and park on Main Street for the third annual Classic Car Night on Thursday, July 10 from 5:00 pm until dusk. A rain date is set for the following Thursday, July 17.

This year’s line-up of vehicular perfection will include a wide array of classics, antiques, specialty models and muscle cars. Admission is free — and registration for display cars is also free.

Promising a summer evening full of fun for automotive aficionados, families and friends alike, entertainment will include classic music favorites spun up by our DJ, and face painting for the kids. The event is sponsored by Motorcar Manor and Rockland Rodders; fundraising proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Visitors coming to Nyack to show their cars and admire those on display can stroll down the center of Main Street and take advantage of the wide variety of fine and casual dining choices, and an eclectic array of specialty shops available throughout the Village. Local merchants will be offering specials to add further temptations to the evening’s mix.

"This community-centered event promises to once again attract a strong showing of car enthusiasts — people who take pride in owning and maintaining special vehicles as well as people who appreciate them,” said Scott Baird, Chamber President. “It’s also a great opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy the Village’s unique restaurants, boutiques and service businesses."

"Visitors can expect not only to see beautifully-maintained vintage and specialty cars, but also to enjoy a fun night out with friends and family,” said Roger S. Cohen, Chamber Vice President. "Our exhibitors, entertainers and sponsors are planning a great show, so everyone will have a memorable night in Nyack.”

“We’re also proud to support the Wounded Warrior Project,” added Mark Mangan, project organizer. "It’s a great cause that gives back to our family members, friends and neighbors who have put themselves in harm’s way to protect us all.”

Classic Car Night piggy-backs on another community initiative spearheaded by the Chamber — Nyack’s Thursday Farmers’ Market — which will be held earlier in the day (8:00 am to 2:00 pm) in the heart of Nyack’s downtown. When all the fruits, vegetables and other delicacies have been sold, the cars will be cruising onto Main Street to begin the evening’s festivities.

Just curious: it's not clear from the article how this event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Anyone know?

A representative from the Chamber said there will be a 50/50 raffle and that funds from that will go to Wounded Warriors.
