Get ready to start your engines. The Syracuse Nationals roared into the fairgrounds Friday morning. We got a sneak peek into the hot rods with our very own Tim Fox.
GEDDES, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The largest car show in the northeast is celebrating 20 years this year. The Syracuse Nationals are underway at the Fairgrounds.
Last year’s event drew nearly 95,000 people and over 8,000 classic cars.
And you can stay cool if you go: Three buildings at the Fairgrounds, including the Center of Progress and Expo Center, are air conditioned.
Centro is bringing in a bus, which will serve as a mobile cooling station. There will also be misting fans across the Fairgrounds and trams to take you wherever you need to go.
The event draws people from all across the country.
“When we started the show, we said everybody’s car is as good as everybody else’s. So there is none of this ‘your car is better than my car.’ If anything, the folks that bring all the cars share stories on how they built this and what they did. So it’s a real collection of car enthusiasts I guess,” said Bob McLean.
The Nationals are open until 6 p.m. Friday. On Saturday, it goes from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
