After being a monthly event on Canal Street for over 23 years, there was concern across social media that the car show may end. The City of New Smyrna Beach recently made the event organizers aware that they would have to start paying for police and fire safety. This concerned the event organizer, Pat Teehan as he said there is no way he could afford those fees. After meeting with New Smyrna Beach City Officials, the fees were eventually waived in an agreement with all parties involved and the car show will continue on.
I recommend all residents and visitors give the car show a try and experience the atmosphere. It is a great family event and falls on the second Saturday of every month.
