On Saturday, September 7th The David Davis Mansion in Bloomington will host the third annual Cruise In at the Mansion from 9:30am to 3:00pm.
No tickets are needed for the car show, but there is a suggested donation of $5 for an adult, $2 for a child, or $10 for a family at the door.
The day will feature activities for the whole family. There will be food and music to go along with the cars, and the David Davis Mansion will be open for people to tour.
Live music will be provided by the local rock n’ roll cover band Protégé which will start playing at around 10am. Food will be provided by the boy scouts, who will be grilling up hot dogs, brats, and hamburgers. Ice Cream will also be available from Schwan’s Ice Cream truck.
The David Davis Mansion hosts two other car shows during the year, but this one is a little bit different.
“The other two shows at David Davis are specific. One of them is strictly antiques and one is strictly british cars. So we decided to open it up to any types of cars so anyone that wants to come out and show their car can.” said Don Kopack, who started and organizes the car show with his wife Cindy.
This show is open to anyone who wants to bring out whatever type of car or vehicle they have.
“It’s open to anything, from trucks, motorcycles, hot rods, street rods, antique cars, new cars what ever the individual has.” said Kopack.
Some local car clubs will also be coming out to show off their cars as well.
“Browns Mercury Service is bringing out there antique tow truck, the Corvette club comes out, the Thunderbird club comes out, there is just a whole bunch of neat cars coming.” said Kopack
The Bloomington Police and Fire Department will also be at the show, to show off their vehicles to the children.
“The Bloomington police bring out a cruiser and put it on display out there. The Bloomington fire department will swing by in their fire truck for about 30 minutes as well, so kids can take a look at that.” said Kopack
If you want a break from looking at all the cars, the David Davis Mansion will also be open during the show for people to tour.
Marsha Young, a staff member at the David Davis Mansion, recalled a previous year when a man brought his 4 year old son to see the cars, only to have him begging to see the house. “His son was far more fascinated by the house than the cars. It was the opposite of what he expected. He could hardly get his son out of the house to go look at the cars, which is what they were there for.” said Young.
The show is scheduled for Saturday, September 7th, but has a rain date of Sunday, September 8th in case of bad weather. The David Davis Mansion is located at 1000 Monroe Drive in Bloomington.
