Tioga Downs Casino Resort is pleased to present its annual car, truck, and motorcycle show on Sept. 28, at their 2384 W. River Rd. complex in Nichols, N.Y. The annual event, taking place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and presented by the American Cruisers Car Club and Southern Tier Harley Davidson and the Binghamton Chapter of the Harley Owner’s Group, will offer a spectacular display of antique and newer custom cars, trucks, and motorcycles during this daylong event.
According to one of the event organizers, Erica Miller, from Tioga Downs, the show attracts over 200 cars and trucks, and over 120 motorcycles each year. And Miller, herself, looks forward to the show each year.
“The event offers guests three shows in one,” said Miller.
The event will welcome a variety of antique and custom cars and trucks, and then will rally as the John “Wah” Oleski Christmas For Kids Ride pulls in from Southern Tier Harley Davidson. The ride, held in conjunction with the show, departs from Southern Tier Harley Davidson, located at 1152 Front St. in Binghamton at 10 a.m., benefits the “Christmas for Kids” effort that delivers toys and cheer to area families in need during the holiday season. Registration for the ride begins 8 a.m. in Binghamton.
Once the ride arrives, motorcyclists will have an opportunity to display their ride during the show. The Top three motorcycles will be awarded, and there are no classes. Motorcycles must be in the show by noon to be judged, and voting ends at 2 p.m.; trophies will be presented at 3:45 p.m. For more information, contact Southern Tier Harley-Davidson by calling (607) 773-0264 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the car show, the top 20 cars will be awarded, one for the overall winner and one for Best in Show. There will be no classes at this year’s show.
The first 100 registrants to the show will receive a free t-shirt, and the first 400 registrants will also receive a dash plaque for participating. The registration cost for the show only is $15, payable at the event.
Guests and car, truck and motorcycle owners will be treated to a variety of vendors and food trucks, as well as entertainment by Aunt Millie’s Biscuits, who will be performing from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
