The Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society will host its eighth annual Classic Car Cruise on July 7.

“Our Classic Car Cruise is always such a fun and bustling event at Bushy Run, and our volunteers work tirelessly to make it as exciting and enjoyable as possible for visitors every year,” said society board member and cruise coordinator Diane Braun.

The show will feature more than 150 classic and antique vehicles, along with a Chinese auction, silent auction and 50/50 raffle.

It will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1253 Bushy Run Road in Penn Township.

The first 100 cars in attendance will receive a commemorative dash plaque, and trophies will be awarded for first, second, and third place winners. Visitors can check out the classic cars and meet their owners, and tour the battlefield and museum at the site.

“Classic car owners take such pride in the work they've done to restore their beautiful vehicles, and we have so much room on our battlefield to display to other car lovers in the community,” Braun said. “We really want the battlefield to serve as a community space, and our car cruise allows for just that.”

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
