Addison Township residents are invited to share their classic cars, motorcycles and delicious cupcakes with the community at the third annual Classic Car and Cupcake Challenge on Saturday, September 16 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Local bakers are encouraged to exhibit their skills in the kitchen by entering the cupcake contest inside the library, located at 1400 Rochester Rd., while automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts can display their vehicles outside in the library’s parking lot for a chance to win an award.
“The library has always been about classics. Classic literature, classic movies, and classic music,”said Library Director JaemaBerman. “This is a chance for people in our community to show off their classics. Three years ago, we decided to have a program about a different kind of ‘classic’ and we’ve been holding it ever since.”
Awards will be given to the first-, second- and third-place winners in the classic car, motorcycle, and cupcake categories.
Each contestant in the cupcake competition must bake a minimum of 18 cupcakes to participate. Cupcake entries must be made from scratch and without the use of pre-made mixes. A list of ingredients must be submitted with all entries.
Those who participate in the cupcake contest are also asked to donate a dozen cupcakes to be sold during the library’s bakesale, which will be held following judging.
All funds raised through the bake sale will benefit the library’s new building fund.
“This is a chance for us to raise money for the new building fund, as well as show our appreciation to the community for all their support as our library comes up on its 40th anniversary here,” Berman added.
All participants must register by 1 p.m.on the day of the event to be eligible for a prize. Judging begins at 2 p.m.
This event was planned with the help of Addison Township resident, Earl Caron, according to Berman.
Beth Shattuck, a local DJ, will “spin the oldies” to entertain and enhance that classic feel throughout the competition.
The event is free, open to the public, and will be held in rain or shine.
Door prizes will also be available.
Registration forms are available at the library.
