June 21, 2011 // Franchising.com // ELKTON, Md. – Car enthusiasts will get more than just a look at an impressive collection of unique vehicles and antique cars as the Downtown Elkton Classic Car Show rolls into town. This year, ColorTyme will be on location at all three upcoming shows to greet members of the community and end the last event with a giveaway drawing.
The Downtown Elkton Classic Car Show will be held on North and Main Streets June 23rd, July 28th and August 25th. Event festivities include door prizes, trophies and entertainment.
To add even more excitement, ColorTyme will host a drawing at the August 18th show, giving away a 60-inch DLP 3D-capable TV and XBOX 360 package. Participants may enter the drawing at the ColorTyme tent during each of the three car shows, and no purchase is necessary to enter. As a special treat, ColorTyme has invited Mayor Joseph Fisona to draw the lucky giveaway winner.
"The Downtown Elkton Classic Car Show is a popular event for this community, and we're excited to be a part of it this year," said Christine Zeman, Elkton ColorTyme store manager. "We encourage everyone to stop by our tent to say hello and enter to win the grand prize. We hope to see our customers and friends there and are anxious to meet some new faces as well."
