Bushy Run Battlefield car cruise slated
More than 150 classic and antique vehicles will be on display at the 8th annual Classic Car Cruise from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 7 at the Bushy Run Battlefield along Route 993 in Penn Township.
In addition to the classic muscle cars and other vintage vehicles, visitors will have the chance to win prizes and cash in a Chinese auction, a raffle and silent auction. Music and entertainment will be provided by disc jockey Glenn Raymer.
“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,” said Diane Braun, Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society board member and cruise coordinator.
Admission is free. 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 will have the opportunity to check out the classic cars and meet their owners and tour the Bushy Run Battlefield and Museum.
