The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce announced this week that Selbyville’s 58th Annual Old Timer’s Day, presented by Bunting & Murray Construction, is returning as the town’s traditional summer festival after a year’s hiatus, featuring a classic car, truck, tractor and military and emergency vehicle show.
The event will take place on June 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Church Street in Selbyville. Judging in the car show will take place from noon to 2 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony at 3 p.m. Themed “Hot Rods for Hospice,” all proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will go directly to Delaware Hospice.
The long-standing event is a tradition in Selbyville, attracting car enthusiasts, families and tourists with something for all ages. During the event, Church Street is closed and lined with classic cars, trucks, tractors and military and emergency vehicles from 1979 and older. The occasion will also feature door prizes, food, vendors, live classic country and rock entertainment from the Bo Dickerson Band, and children’s activities including crafts, pony rides, a moon bounce and an obstacle course.
Participants can register their 1979 or older vehicle for a $10 fee, to compete for a range of awards and cash prizes including Best of Show Cars & Trucks ($100), Best of Show Tractors ($100), Best of Show Emergency Vehicles ($50), Long Haul ($20), Best Paint ($20), Best Interior ($20), Best Engine Compartment ($20) and Henry Haygood’s Pick ($50).
Additionally, those registered for the car show are being invited to cruise the Quiet Resorts in the official Old Timer’s Day Poker Run, to be held on Friday, June 19, the day before the main event. Cash prizes include $200 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place. Poker Run participants should report to the Selbyville Town Hall on Church Street for instructions on Friday at 8:30 a.m.
