Aren’t we all longing for those “good old days” – that time when life was easier and simpler? Come to Williams, AZ Friday or Saturday, June 12-13, for the annual classic car show right on Historic Route 66 where people bring their spit-shined classic cars, trucks and motorcycles from all over for compete for prizes. While you may not actually get to go back to those old days, you sure will feel a wave of nostalgia when walking around these beauties. Stop in a diner for a milkshake, listen to some live music outside throughout the weekend, grab a burger at one of the many outdoor patios, listen to the muscle cars among them starting up, smell the real leather and wax, and let their shiny colors make you just forget all about the stresses of life in 2020. Williams, AZ is a little town that is all about the glory days of the past, and car show weekend is not to be missed.
Friday night pick a spot on Route 66 to watch the “Cruise the Loop” parade of vehicles at 5:00pm. Saturday the cars will be parked all along Route 66 after 10:00am for up close viewing and display. Awards will be given out at 4:00pm, but enjoy festivities all day long outside all along Route 66.
