On Saturday July 28th the Swanton Chamber of Commerce held its 3rd Annual Car Show on the village green in downtown Swanton. What a beautiful day it turned out to be with 123 cars gracing our show. We had an excellent turn-out of people who came to see some very amazing vehicles. We truly hope everyone had a great time. And the weather was perfect, which we thank the Good Lord for.
No event is a success without the volunteers, sponsors and members of the Chamber. With that said I would like to thank the following businesses for supporting this year’s car show. Again, without them we have no show.
