The Orinda Annual Classic Car Show, the following day on September 24th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., will delight car fans of all ages. Last year's event featured more than 165 car entries and raised $32,000 for local charities. "This year's car show is special because it will expand to display classics 'on the green' thanks to the Orinda Country Club's support in opening its beautiful 16th golf fairway for displays," says event founder Chip Herman. "There'll be the flavor of 'Pebble Beach' in Orinda with something for everyone."

A plus these days, the Saturday car show is free, but a donation of $10 will add the thrill of riding in one of the classic cars during the parade at the close of the show. Additional information about the show can be found at

Bring the family and head to Orinda to enjoy an amazing display of classic cars and motorcycles, as well as the food and music. The Saturday show will be held in Orinda Village at Orinda Motors, located at 63 Orinda Way.
