BAYVILLE– The fifth annual car show and festival sponsored by the D.A.R.E. program of Berkeley Township will zoom in Sunday, June 9, 2013. The old, classic and unique cars will throttle on Veteran’s Park.
The main event is the collection of unexpected automobiles parked up and down the field. Last year there were 200 classic cars for show.
“Many people come out to see for the car show and bring their kids as well, says Patrolman Shelby, the drug resistance officer for the Berkeley elementary schools and Central Regional Middle School D.A.R.E program.
The popular, summer event will feature a coloring contest for the children, in which winners will receive 25-dollar gift certificates. The festival will also include music, food, raffles, giveaways, a large bouncy house, temporary tattoos, face painting, and vendors.
D.A.R.E Day vendors will consist of artists, food and activities for children to accompany the festivities from 10 AM to 4 PM at free admission.
All of the proceeds go directly to the D.A.R.E program. The money raised strengthens the organization and provides prizes, t-shirts and supplies for the children.
The annual Berkeley D.A.R.E. car show and festival is one of the many summer festivals hosted by the Berkeley Township Parks and Recreation Department. A field full of cars will be waiting at Veteran’s Park, one of the largest parks in Bayville.
D.A.R.E or The Drug Abuse Resistance Education’s goal is to provide students with information to avoid drugs, gangs and violence. Peer pressure, making good choices, friendship foundations and bullying are also emphasized.
