Scott Antique Markets is teaming up with the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. Car Show this Saturday at the Fayette County Fairgrounds for a special ending to the Antique Extravaganza season.

“We’re thrilled to help support an amazing thing like the Miami Trace D.A.R.E. Program,” Kenny Scott, executive manager for Scott Antique Markets, said. “We think it will be a really great event for all involved.”

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. Car Show will begin Saturday with registration from 10 a.m. to noon and end with an awards presentation at 2 p.m. Awards will be given for the top five cars, plus other specialty categories, including: Furthest Traveled, Participant’s Choice, D.A.R.E. Officer’s Choice, Captain’s Choice and Law Enforcement Vehicles 1990 and Older, selected by the sheriff and chief deputy. A D.J., kids’ games, a silent auction and raffles will also add to the fun of the event, and all proceeds will go to the Miami Trace D.A.R.E. Program.

Car show participants will need to take their cars into the Fairview Avenue entrance Saturday morning to pay the $15 entry fee and park their vehicle for judging. Shoppers and visitors will enter through the US 62 entrance to the fairgrounds, where parking is free and admission is $1 to get into both the car and antique shows.

The Antique Extravaganza will be held Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29-30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors who walk through the entrance during the weekend will be greeted by numerous antique vendors, both inside and outside, throughout the fairgrounds. Shoppers can find a wide variety of antiques and collectibles as they browse through the booths and enjoy lunch or a snack at one of the food vendors available on the grounds. On Saturday only, customers can enjoy the added bonus of the car show behind the antique vendors at the fairgrounds.

With the addition of the car show to bring even more fun to the weekend, the final Antique Extravaganza of the season promises to be one to remember until they return to the Fayette County Fairgrounds next April.
