The event will also feature the playing of the national anthem, the setting off of multiple cannons, and small activities for children, such as corn in the hole.

Rick Johnson, the event coordinator for Motors at the Museum hopes to offer an event where local families could enjoy themselves and participate in free activities.

“I want to be able to catch a family where mom or dad working two jobs, trying to show their family love. And I know they want to take them somewhere but the money is out. And I mean what do they do? Where do they go? So you can come to the show here Saturday, bring a blanket bring your own food if you want to,” stated Johnson.

“I said, ‘As long as I can do it for free, this is how we’re going to do it.’

Those interested in participating in the show can bring their cars with them to the Naval War Museum and register at the event.
