Corvettes at Carlisle

We visit the largest collection of Corvettes in the world

wide-angle-show-picIn case you’ve been out of touch with the Corvette world for the past few decades and weren’t aware of this show (highly unlikely!), each August the Corvette faithful swarm the Carlisle, PA fairgrounds. This event is by far the largest Corvette gathering in the world, boasting more than 5000 examples of America’s Sports Car each and every year.

And let’s not forget the Corvette giveaway, a huge swap meet, an all-Corvette car corral, a Manufacturer’s Midway and Installation Alley.

It took us pretty much the entire day to walk the event, enduring temps in the upper 80s and knock-your-socks-off humidity. A hat, sunscreen and plenty of water helped– that, and the fact that we were in Corvette Utopia![envira-gallery id="1167"]Believe it or not, we still run into plenty of people who have never been to this event. Make plans for this summer – August 25-28. It’s completely family friendly and there are plenty of things to do in this part of Pennsylvania. Hope to see you there!
