Supporters of the Wyalusing Public Library (above) are praying for sunny weather on Sunday, June 11, when they will host their first car show at Tuscarora Wayne Field (site of the former Wyalusing Elementary School) off Route 6 in Wyalusing.
The event will be held from 1 to 4 pm, as long as it is not raining. Admission is free.
Any year, make and model vehicle is eligible for placement in the show. The registration fee is $10 per vehicle through the end of Monday, June 5, compared to $15 up to the day of the show.
“This is our maiden voyage into something different for the library as a fundraiser,” said library director Cathy Brady. “We thought this would be a good fit for Wyalusing, and we’re hoping that it will be an annual thing.”
As of the morning of June 5, registration has been brisk, Brady related. At present, car owners from as far away as York are planning to participate. “Traveled the Farthest” is just one of six categories in which prizes will be distributed. Others include Oldest, Newest, People’s Choice, Librarian’s Choice, and Coolest Paint Job.
DJ Retro Rick will be spinning classic “car tunes” and other golden oldies from the 1950s through the 1970s, and a craft show will be conducted simultaneously. Other vendors confirmed at time of publication are Pampered Chef, LulaRoe, Scentsy, Thrive, DoTerra, Tastefully Simple, Paparazzi Accessories, 31, Younique Cosmetics, and Plexus. There will also be jewelry and baked good for sale.

As of June 5, the forecast for Sunday calls for partly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s. Any decision to cancel the event based on weather will be made by 11 am on Sunday morning.
