The Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival kicks off the summer in Bay Harbor with a fantastic collection of classic cars and wooden boats. The highlight of Vintage Weekend is the Parade of Vintage Cars and Display of Vintage Boats, held Saturday afternoon and capped off with a drive-by awards ceremony. The parade is free to the public, and every year thousands of people, both locals and visitors from across the Midwest bring their families to see this elegant gathering of vintage cars and motor boats.
Vintage cars and wooden boats will be coming from all over the country, so it will be an exciting weekend for our exhibitors and guests. There will be opportunities to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying fantastic social events and, of course, a fabulous showing of classic cars and boats.
