GREENVILLE – The Rolling 50’s Classics, Inc. held their annual classic car show Saturday evening at the north end of the Greenville Kroger parking lot.
“We have close to 100 cars here,” said The Rolling 50’s Dave Niley. “It’s a beautiful evening, it’s a good time to come out to a car show.”
“It brings a lot of people to Greenville and Darke County,” added Niley. “A lot of them have never been here before – it does bring new ones every year.”
The Saturday night show was the first of three events the local Rolling 50’s Classics, Inc. will be sponsoring locally in 2018.
“We are doing three events again this year,” Niley noted. “We have this one here at Kroger, we have one on Father’s Day at the fairgrounds and on September 8th we will be downtown Greenville on Broadway.”
The organization will hold its 36th Annual Father’s Day Rolling 50’s Classics Car Show and Swap Meet at the Darke County Fairgrounds scheduled for June 17.
September 8th is the date for one of Ohio’s largest cruise-ins; the Legendary Rolling 50’s Classics Fall Cruse-In downtown Greenville on Broadway including a live DJ with 50’s and 60’s music.
“The big one is downtown on Broadway,” said Niley. “That brings in a bunch. We’re looking at over 500 cars.”
“They can just show up on that date, or they can call ahead,” Niley said of entrants traveling to the Greenville show. “We’ll do anything to make it friendly and easy – we try to please everybody. We want everybody to come and enjoy themselves. It’s just a good event.”
Charities of the Rolling 50’s include: The Shriners Children’s Hospital and the Cancer Association of Darke County.
