Larry-O Car Show returns to Union City
Submitted By Union City Community & Recreation
A colorful cavalcade of custom and vintage cars, trucks and hot rods from the 1920s through the 1970s will soon be rolling into Union City at the Fifth Annual Larry-O Car Show.
The family-friendly event is named in honor of longtime Union City resident and Recreation Department supervisor Larry Orozco who was instrumental in bringing a car show to the city. Special guest at this yearÕs show will be Union City Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci.
Cars will be on display from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12 at the Ruggieri Senior Center, 33997 Alvarado Niles Road. Traditional favorites at previous shows will be back including restored Model A and Model T classics and custom motorcycles. Although the emphasis is on vintage and classic cars, some newer vehicles also will be on display. All cars in the show belong to local residents who registered to show off their classic vehicles.
Also on tap throughout the day will be a model car display, custom bicycle show and a fund-raising barbecue. Entertainment will include oldies music and a rockabilly performance by Billy London & the Lucky Dice. For children, there will be a bounce house and face painting activities. Admission is free to all events.
ItÕs not too late to add new cars into the mix. Registrations are still being accepted from anyone who would like to enter their new or classic cars into the show. Pre-registration cost is $25 per vehicle, or $30 the day of the event. Call (510) 675-5495 for details.
