For the next month, car enthusiasts can head to Bay Terrace for a night of classic cars, live music, and raffles.
The free weekly event is hosted by the Cord Meyer Development Company at The Bay Terrace Shopping Center and features vehicles from the Queens Classic Car Club, an organization founded in 2013. Car fans enjoyed the first show on July 13th and can return any Tuesday through August. 31.
According to Cord Meyer, the event is part of their mission to be the “heart of the community” by hosting arts and cultural events for the residents of the neighborhood.
“We’d like to thank the auto clubs and everyone who made our first auto show this summer such a success,” said Matthew Whalen, CEO of Cord Meyer. “Today’s Bay Terrace is much more than a mall. We are a community destination that offers entertaining events such as the auto show in addition to important human services such as blood donations, job fairs and dress-for-success initiatives. We look forward to hosting a growing number of family-friendly events over the coming months while serving the needs of our neighbors in Bay Terrace and beyond. “
Organizers said the show was a “huge hit” last Tuesday, featuring 80 cars and a 50/50 raffle for Saint Mary’s Hospital for Children, sponsored by Jackie DeLuca and the Queens Classic Car Club.
The following shows will take place in the Bay Terrace parking lot on July 20th, August 3rd, August 17th and August 31st from 5pm to 9pm and feature live music from cover bands such as Contraband, Chickenhead Rocks and Bootleg Five.
