Beacon's 5th Car Auto Show 2016 Rolls Into Town - Pictures of the City's Biggest Yet

Cruising into its fourth year, the Beacon Auto Show rolled into town with 307 automobiles and trucks. Filing up both sides of Main Street from west to east, stopping at the diner, it was again put on by Beacon's Chamber of Commerce. This year, 2016, marks the largest year for the show, which so far, has only been growing. According to officials, cars were squeezed in anywhere they could fit, including several in the DMV Parking Lot. Live music and an awards show, with several trophies, were anchored at the gas station near the post office and the entrance to Beacon Flea. The day's weather was spectacular, unlike the previous year when we experienced a freak snow shower, sending people into cafes (like Homespun, pictured below) in search of hot chocolate.

 Prevalent this year were the props outside and inside of the cars. Looks like we featured this car in  the 2015 show!  This time, it looks brighter and has plenty of accessories.

 Remember the third seat facing backwards in the Chevy Caprice? Complete with seat belts.

 The Beacon Flea was packed with different vendors, several of whom stayed past the usual closing hour of 3 pm because the crowd remained strong.
