Rev Your Engines For The Twenty-Fifth Annual Car, Bike, And Craft Show

By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

One of the Township’s most popular, annual events – the Car, Bike, and Craft Show – turns 25 this year. Held along a portion of the “Maple Mile,” this fall favorite is held on Sunday, Sept. 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“This is a great event that people look forward to every year, filled with classic cars, hot rods, choppers, and more,” says Elwood Martz, head of Pennsauken’s Parks and Recreation Department. “There will be plenty of food, crafts, and kids entertainment; it really is a fun day out for the whole family.”

Cars and bikes of all makes and models will be lined up at Pinsetter Bar & Bowl, 7111 Maple Ave., and stretch down towards Union Ave. There are 22 judging classes for cars, from stock production to 1953 through new cars, 2011 to present, plus a variety of different awards including the Parks and Recreation Award, the Pflugfelder Award, and Best in Show. Motorcycles are judged in nine classes, full dresser through antique, and can be recognized with the Best in Show, Best Foreign, and Thomas “Pops” Busch awards.

“We really have a lot of opportunities for car and bike owners to have their vehicles recognized,” adds Mart. “It’s part of the draw of this event.”

As attendees enjoy viewing the many cars and bikes on display, they can also enjoy a parking lot full of activity. Pinsetter Bar and Bowl will have a barbecue tent with tables and chairs for people to sit, eat, and relax. There will also be some family-friendly entertainment, including bounce houses, balloon twisting, face painting, and disk jockeys spinning both classic and the latest hits.

Each year, every effort is made to reduce the impact on the neighborhoods along Maple Ave. and adjoining streets. Local residents will have access to major throughways and can get in and out of the area during the event. In case of inclement weather, the rain date for the Car, Bike, and Craft Show is Sunday, Oct. 1.
