Classic Car Show returns to Dot Park in September

On Sunday, Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. antique vehicles will sparkle like gems in historic Dorchester Park for the Sixth Annual Classic Car Show. On display will be cars and trucks many visitors will remember from their youth and some that were in use early in the last century.

The sound of classic hit tunes will add atmosphere to the display of beautifully restored vehicles and a food truck will provide refreshments. Visitors can also tour the park in a horse and wagon and students from the Boston School of Music will perform contemporary and classical music. Bean bag and other games will be available for families and giant bubbles will float in the air to delight children.

Owners can register their classic cars when entering the park. The event is free for everyone.

With the towering trees, hills and outcroppings of Dorchester Puddingstone, Dorchester Park provides a view of Dorchester’s terrain before cars were invented. Designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, creator of Boston’s Emerald Necklace and New York’s Central Park, Dorchester Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The car show is sponsored by the Dorchester Park Association (DPA), a volunteer organization responsible for organizing the Spring Egg Hunt and other events at the park and assisting the park department with the removal of litter and leaves. This year the DPA also secured four goats with big appetites to reduce poison ivy and invasive growth at the park.
