Sunday, July 26 the neighborhood surrounding East Passyunk Avenue will be filled with the roar of auto engines as the 10th Annual Car Show and Street Festival rolls into town. East Passyunk's largest block party of the year includes plenty of cars to gawk at as well as mobile food vendors and live entertainment.
The festival, which is free for attendees, will feature live music and DJs at every block of the event, from Broad to Dickinson Streets. Rick Baccare will sing Sinatra for the crowd and Rolling Stones cover band Brown Sugar will perform. The Bang! Boom! CRAFT! Show will bring antiques and craft goodies to the Singing Fountain for the sixth year in a row and there will be a moon bounce and more activities for children.
Over 140 antique, classic and custom cars, trucks and motorcycles will be on display up and down the avenue hosted by Northeast Muscle Car Club. Registration for the car show is "day-of" only and, though the show is free for attendees, it costs $15 for participating cars.
As for the food, Cantina los Caballitos, El Sarape, Made in the Shade Lemonade, MomPops, Stogie Joe's, The Cow and the Curd, The Bottle Shop and Weckerly's Ice Cream will be on hand, as will over two dozen of the Avenue's finest eateries. Stargazy, the new British pie shop coming to the street, will be doing a preview, too.
