Another Day, Another Car Show, But This One Will Transport You To The 50’s
It's not hard to find a car show in Minnesota, but it may be a bit harder to find a sock hop. That's why this car show is distinct. Not only can you view classic cars, but you can dance like you're in another decade.
The "Return To The 50's" classic car show and sock hop is Wednesday, June 30th from 4-7 pm. Held by the Traditions of Owatonna, the event features a burger stand, ice cream sundaes, music, face painting, drawings, and more.
There is no entry or registration fee, but there is a $250 People's Choice Award!
The event is hosted at 195 24th Place NW in Owatonna and is sponsored by South Side Speed Shop.
