We have Hot August nights in my town, and it usually attracks about 400 cars (all makes) from all around Canada and WA. and OR. It is the biggest car show we have.
The cost is 5.00 Can. a car, and takes up all of downtown and is free to spectactors. I entered the Fairlane last year (first car show and won best unfinished) and went with a 69 Torino Fastback that was complete. I guess it helped parking beside a finished car,lol. Im taking the Cougar and Fairlane this year I hope.

There are a few other car shows throughout the year, that range from 50-200 local cars, and its 10.00 to enter a car, and usually free to go see except one cost 5.00 a family with proceeds to the local hospital campaign. and 10.00 to enter a car.I plan on going to alot more this year when my Cougars done, and enter both cars.
The next one is Mothers day at a local speed shop parking lot and cost 5.00 to enter a car, and free to watch, and proceeds to ****** cancer research (cool). Trophy's and gift certificates to best of....... (all classes) and usually brings around 100 cars. It's my wifes birthday then, we will enter her car (Fairlane) and hopefully win a coffee,lol.

Here in DFW, Cruises and weekend shows are generally 10-15 per vehicle. No cost to spectators...

There are commericial shows that get put on about 3 times a year that carry a price tag of 25-50 to enter and 10 for spectators... These are the Autorama style shows...

The reason I'm asking is there is some confusion in our club about charging for "additional adults" at our Deer Park site. Deer Park is a Winery and Auto Museum. It's $25 for the car and driver and $5 for the additional adult. I'm trying not to take sides. Just gathering information for the next meeting ;-)

What's everybodys opinion.......is it fair to charge for spectators in this situation?

See our Club and the Winery:
