The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association's 19th Annual "The Way We Were" Car Show takes place Sunday, October 10, 2021 from 9 am to 4 pm on Front Street in downtown Ballston Spa.  The rain date is October 17, 2021.

After having to go "virtual" last year because of COVID, we are excited to be back "Together Again".  Front Street will be blocked off from Milton Avenue past the Old Iron Spring to accomodate cars and vendors.  In addition to live music, food and merchandise vendors, the show will feature a Kids' Zone located in Iron Spring Park.

The car show is a judged show and several trophies will be awarded, including Best in Show, Mayor's Choice, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Stock, Oldest Vehicle plus top 3 in specified categories.  Judging begins at 9 am with trophies awarded at 3:30 pm. 

The event is free to spectators.  Vehicle entrants can pre-register by September 30 for $15, or pay $20 day of show.  Proceeds benefit BSBPA community efforts and activities.

Car show cling decals are given to the first 400 cars registered and the first 200 registered receive goody bags.  Car entry information and pre-registration can be found online at ballston.org.  A printable registration form is also available on the website.
