Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!! The Depot in Newark Valley, home to the Depot Friday Nights series, is adding a new venture this year, Concours D’Elegance. Old-time and nearly old-time vehicles are invited to “Cruise- In” to the Depot on the first Saturday of each month from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM starting in June and continuing through September. Opening night will be June 1. This “Cruise In” is NOT limited only to cars of a particular vintage; if it has wheels and you are proud of it, bring it down! There is no charge and the public is encouraged to come. Refreshments will be available–ice cream sundaes and banana splits are the specialty at the Depot. While you are there be sure to tour the 1800s railroad station and caboose. The waiting room is home to a historical review of the history of the wheel and the bicycle, compliments of the Newark Valley Town Historians. This event promises to be lots of fun as we step back in time to a by-gone era of slower moving conveyances, while mingling with more modern modes of transportation, all the while enjoying the charming atmosphere of an 1800’s railroad depot.
