Wheels On The Waterfront Wheels On The Waterfront

BANGOR- The Bangor waterfront will be lined with classics this weekend for the Wheels on the Waterfront car show. It's an event that was started by the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau six years ago and it continues to draw quite a crowd.

"It's quite a show," said Kerrie Tripp, executive director for the Greater Bangor CVB. "We had 300 participants last year, and this year we already have 150 vehicles that are pre-registered for the event, including a large contingency from Canada. Those folks will spend the night in hotels and eat at our restaurants, which has a trickledown effect for tourism in our area."

Pat Leture of Orono has participated in the event each year.

"We've been to a lot of car shows, and I think Bangor is one of the better ones. The waterfront is just an ideal location," explained Leture. "We always bring our 1957 Chevy Bel Air and our 1933 Chevy Street Rod."

The competition among the Tri-Fives, Mustangs, Tuners and other classics is tough. And the judging is even tougher.

"It's not the other car people judging the cars," said Leture. "It's a selection of judges with a specialty in trucks or judges who have a specialty in motorcycles or foreign cars."

Because more and more car enthusiasts are participating in the event, the show organizers have added Railroad Street to the show.

"Not the grass but the actual hot top. Some of the antique cars were having a hard time in the grass," said Tripp.

Participants and spectators will also get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid at this year's show.

"We've teamed up with Darling's to offer test rides all day in the Fusion Energi," said Tripp. "I've never had a chance to drive one so I'm really excited to try it myself."

The Wheels on the Waterfront car show will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7. Registration is $15 for participants the day of the event, spectators are free.

"I hope it continues to grow and grow and get a lot of different cars," said Leture.
