Car Shows: Cruise Over To The Largest Car Show In The State!

Spring: Car enthusiast watch out, the Bonney Eagle Car Show is almost here and now’s the time to make your plans to attend. This is Maine’s biggest car show and offers visitors an array of cars, over 2000 to be exact. From muscle cars, to antique autos, classics, street rods, corvettes to mini trucks you will find it all at this very popular and much anticipated car show. Held on the Cumberland Fairgrounds each May for over 30 years this show is well attended and is the kick off to the “cruise” season. Cruises are very popular amongst car enthusiast. Several car clubs around the state sponsor these events and during the summer months you can find one going on almost each night of the week in different locations around the state. Drive by the Dairy Queen in Rockland on a Tuesday night during the summer months and you will find the parking lot lined with cool old cars and it resembles a scene straight out of the 1950’s. The people that take part in these popular “cruises” share a love for the nostalgic and a passion for old cars and trucks. Many of these autos have been restored to their original condition which many of these owners consider a “labor of love”. So if you have an interest in old cars or are just looking for some fun way to spend a day than “cruise” on over to the Cumberland Fairgrounds in May and check out the Bonny Eagle Car Show!
