‘Rods to Rails’ show returns to Jamestown

Gary Linehan, The Union Democrat /

Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jamestown's cozy Main Street will be closed off and free to spectators to view an array of spectacular vehicles during the Jamestown Promotion Club's third annual "Rods to Rails" classic car show.

Nearby, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park also will entice spectators with the showing of more antique and classic cars. Trains rides also will be available at Railtown from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the regular fares.

The day's events will include a pancake breakfast, prize drawings, daylong DJ music, carriage rides and a free shuttle to and from Railtown sponsored by Chicken Ranch Casino.

Members of the High Country Hellcats roller derby team will serve as car hops.

Cars will be awarded cash and trophies for best of show in three categories.

"Main Street in our nugget of a town will be closed off but filled with fun and cars," said event spokeswoman Sue Fontana.

"We will offer custom and classic cars of the pre-1972 era. In the morning, fill up on the pancake breakfast that will be put on by Jamestown School to benefit the school's activities," she said. "The DJ will be playing all day, taking that special request, and our merchants will have their wares displayed."

More than 100 prizes will be given away in drawings.

Major prizes include a 40-inch-screen television, bicycles and smoker.

The roller derby girls will be rolling around town offering tickets.

The Rusty Rockers will play rock and classic country music at Railtown from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Car awards will be presented at 3 p.m. in Rocca Park.

For car show registration and other details, call 984-0888 or 996-0147.
