23rd Annual 8 Flags Car Show

The 23rd Annual 8 Flags Car Show will feature hundreds of classic cars showcased along Fernandina’s Centre Street (and spilling onto some side streets). Centre Street is closed to regular vehicular traffic, so enjoy a foot-friendly, pedestrian-only area, offering plenty of photo ops. There’s music as well, filtering through the streetscape. Popular hits of the past further adds to the show’s vibe. This is a perfect day to spend some leisure time wandering around downtown and grab a bite to eat or enjoy a drink.

Day of Nostalgia

Car envy — for some, it’s a thing, especially when entwined with feelings of nostalgia. Seeing cars that were around back in the “good old days” often brings long ago memories to surface. Some spot a vehicle similar to one previously owned by parents, or a friend (even ourselves) — back in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s. It can be bittersweet, since some wish they still had those vehicles.
