Bradford Era – by Mandy Colosimo

The Sixth Arts on the Island event happens from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m Sept. 30 at Hamlin Lake Park on Willow Street.

The fundraiser benefiting the McKean County Historical Society includes a car show, arts and crafts vendors, food and music throughout the day. Admission is free.

“This year, at the car show, we added a category for fire trucks. We hope to have mayors, police or fire chiefs, or other leaders in the first responders sponsor a trophy for this new category,” Bart Barton, event organizer, said. Other categories of vehicles for the show eligible to compete for an award include cars older than 1950, 1950-63, 1964-74, 1975 to present with stock under 300 horsepower, 1975 to present with high performance over 300 HP; Jeeps of any year; motorcycles of any year; antique trucks 1945 and older, 1946 to present; and fire trucks.

Trophies will be awarded at 4 p.m. to the winners of each class. During the car show, those walking around can enjoy the music of the ’50s and ’60s as they wait to see who wins in each of the select categories. Read More
