The Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce will sponsor its 11th Annual Car-B-Que on June 7 and, as always, begins with a parade of Classic Cars.
The parade will begin at Wal-Mart and continue along Ford Street to the Dobisky Visitors Center.
Each year the Chamber kicks off summer with a show of fabulous cars displayed along the waterfront on the lawn of the City Marina.
The Chamber is looking for motorcycles for our motorcycle display and antique snowmobiles, as well. The chamber urges to motorcycle and snowmobile riders to show off their motorcycles and snowmobiles as part of the festivities.
To enter a car in the car show and parade, call the Chamber office at 315-393-3620. Registration for cars begins at 10 a.m. at the Walmart parking lot. Cost to register a car is only $7.
There is no cost to display a motorcycle or antique snowmobile.
The 10th Mountain Division Band will play from noon until 2 p.m.
Please bring your own lawn chair and enjoy their Jazz, Rock and Patriotic selections. The last time they were here was in 2012 — their music was one of the highlights of the afternoon. Seaway Valley Jumpers will have a 22 foot Water Slide set up for all the kids (for a nominal fee) – it is the largest water slide in St. Lawrence County,
There will be food; raffles and door prizes. Admission is free to the Car-B-Que – come down to the Dobisky Visitors Center on June 7.
All cars will be displayed on the grass in front of the City Marina. We are looking for craft vendors to set up on the sidewalk. The Ogdensburg GreenMakrket will be setting up with us this year too. Well have burgers and dogs, sausage and peppers, a bake sale, and our annual huge Grille Raffle.
