If you love nostalgia, one of the best times each year to wander around in downtown Fernandina is the third weekend of October. A rainbow of colors and gleaming chrome will decorate the streets of the historic district.
Vintage Vehicles Downtown
The 8 Flags Car Show is presented by the Amelia Cruizers Car Club. It’s a great outdoor event, with October typically being one of the most beautiful weather months of the year here. The event date is Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 8 am to 3 pm (FREE admission). Browse hundreds of classic cars on display. The Fernandina show was filmed last year by “My Classic Car,” and broadcast on TV (watch the show video below).
“Vibe Is Awesome”
Take a look at this episode to see scenes around Fernandina and featured cars. The host, Dennis Gage, called Fernandina “the perfect place for a car show.” Gage also commented about the awesome vibe, concluding that the 8 Flags Car Show in Fernandina “is an absolute blast!”
So mark your calendar to be in downtown Fernandina Beach on October 21st, 2017 to see a wonderful collection of classic cars. Walk through the display at a relaxed pace. Enjoy the show and take the opportunity to also browse some of Fernandina’s shops. Perhaps grab a bite to eat or drink at restaurants and pubs. Spend a “daycation” exploring the historic district.
