Fabulous 50s Fling & Car Show in Sugarcreek, Ohio: Fifties’ era music and polished chrome grills take on a life of their own the second weekend in June in Sugarcreek at the Fabulous Fifties Fling & Car Show. Successful from its start in 1991, the Fabulous Fifties Fling is now the largest Fifties festival in Ohio and is annually selected among the Top Ten cruise-in downtown car shows in the Midwest by a readers’ poll conducted by Cruisin’ Times Magazine. The Fabulous Fifties Fling & Car Show continues to grow each year increasing in the number of visitors and cars showing and competing for top honors. The professional judging attracts some of the best custom cars and hot rods in a five-state area–Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana and West Virginia. The show can accommodate more than 500 cars with cars on display overflowing into the downtown streets and lots.
The weekend kicks off with the Friday Night Cruise-In, which features an Open Class Show, the Cruisin’ 5K Run/Walk, and entertainment from popular Car Show DJ The Spikeman. The main event on Saturday features homemade food at bargain prices, continuous entertainment with multiple crowd-pleasing oldies bands, and hundreds of car entries, 1980 or older. Car show participants are attracted by the quality of awards and generous cash prizes. Best of Show wins $500 and a custom-cut scroll award. The Top 50 vehicles will also receive a special award. As always, the first 300 car registrants get a souvenir as well. Make sure to cruise on over to Sugarcreek to join in the old-fashioned fun!
