“More than 100 vehicles participated in last year’s event,” noted organizer Tony Paciulli. “Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Dorchester Park is the perfect backdrop for classic cars.”
Performers from the Boston Music School always draw a large crowd and children gather around storyteller Angela Bonds from the Boston Public Library throughout the afternoon, Paciulli said. Games include bean bag toss and a variety of races.
