The Mount Pleasant Area Historical Society is hosting a car show 3-7 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Mount Pleasant Glass Center.

And just like that, it’s August. Fear not … it’s still hot, it’s still summer and there’s still plenty of fun to be had.

Sweet rides

Bright, shiny and classic are all on tap this weekend as the Mount Pleasant Area Historical Society hosts a car show Sunday. It’s set for 3-7 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Glass Center (former Lenox factory), 402 E. Main St.

There will also be food trucks on hand, there, too, so come hungry. Shhhh, but in case of rain, it’ll be held Aug. 11. All proceeds support the historical society.
