The buzz is all over town. On Sunday, September 7, 2014, The Second Annual Antique Car Show and Family Picnic was a smashing success. Organizers could not have been more delighted with the turn out, the events and music planned, the food offered, volunteers and, of course, our generous sponsors.
Dorchester Park, The Lower MIlls Merchants, organizers and planners wish to thank our generous sponsors who made this event possible.
Plan on enjoying an exciting Sunday in Dorchester Park. The Second Annual Antique & Exotic Car Show and Family Fun Day will be held in just a few days on Sept. 7. The best access to most of the activities is via the Adams Street entrance. This will enter directly into the car show which goes from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Continue up the path from the cars through the Food Court and share in all of the Family Fun Day activities that will be offered from Noon to 4:00 PM. Either of the 2 major paths going to the back of the park from the Dot Ave. entrance will also lead to the day’s events. Clydesdales will be giving carriage rides along these paths.
Admission to the event is free.
Various food vendors will be in the Food Court, but you can also bring your own picnic lunch.
There is no need to preregister cars for the car show. Car registration is free and is arranged on site when you arrive. The gates to the car show open at 8:00 AM. Greeters will be at the entrance to direct car show participants to parking sites. Car Show awards will be announced around 2:00 PM.
Everything is ready for the Second Annual Classic Car Show and Family Fun Day to be held on Sunday, September 7, 2014 in Dorchester Park.
While the Car Show takes place from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on the lower field on Adams Street, the Family Day Activities will be held from Noon to 4:00 PM on the upper field at the end of the path just uphill from the cars. The Food Court will be conveniently located along the path between the two fields. Everyone is encouraged to enjoy both events.
Rides through the scenic paths in the park on carriages drawn by Clydesdale Horses will start near the tennis courts, a short distance up a path to the left from the triangle at the bottom of the Richview Street stairs.
A list of activities as well as a map of the park’s layout for the day’s events are posted in the notification boxes located at both the Dot Ave. and Adams Street entrances to the park.
The best direct access to the event is at the Adams Street entrance. However either of the two main paths starting at the circle near the park’s main entrance on Dot Ave. will lead to the day’s events. The Hutchinson Street entrance is right at the Family Fun Day area. Parking is available on local streets and in the Carney Hospital’s parking lot, where there is a gate providing entrance into the park. There will be signs throughout the park directing people to the event sites.
Below please find a list of the days activities and a map of the layout of the park.
Coming soon. Just 3 weeks until the Second Annual Classic Car Show and Family Fun Day in Dot Park. An exciting day is in the making. Mark your calendars for a good time for all.

In the afternoon, horse drawn carriage rides along the scenic paths through the park will be available. Admission to the car show and all activities is free.
