This year the other two Thursdays will be used for promotions to shop locally, to draw residents to Hartz Avenue and its side streets to discover the attractions of the central business district. Hopefully the businesses can make it work because a lot of residents will miss the car shows on those two nights.
An old proverb says, "If a man does away with his traditional way of living and throws away his good customs, he had better first make certain that he has something of value to replace them." So, too, we hope something worthwhile will replace the car shows. On the balmy summer evenings of July and August, the car shows are great family events, a gathering spot for young and old alike, plus a chance to invite friends from other Bay Area locations to town for a unique evening's entertainment.
