NORTH HUDSON - The third annual North Hudson Car Show and Drag Strip Memorabilia Day will be held on May 1.
Activities will begin at 9 a.m. and continue through mid-afternoon. Cars will be at the North Hudson fire house and town office parking area, 3034 US Route 9, North Hudson. Memorabilia will be on display in the fire house community room.
The event started in 2008 as a reunion of participants and attendees at the North Hudson Dragway which operated for several years until the late 1960s.
The 2009 event saw even higher attendance and many more cars. Live music was provided and refreshments donated by local food establishments were provided. That format will continue this year.
There will be no entrance fees nor will any trophies be given. Memorabilia is encouraged as people are still interested in the history and lore of the drag strip days.
Anyone who would to participate, volunteer, make a donation of any kind or has an idea for this event can contact Doug Bensen by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call April Bessey at 532-7877.
