WINNETKA — Lincoln Avenue will have up to 25 cars at a standstill on Saturday, but they won’t be stuck in rush hour traffic. They will be on display as part of a classic car show featuring vehicles proudly put on display by their owners, all local residents. The car show is part of a new addition for 2012 to the Winnetka Sidewalk Sale called “Let Loose on Lincoln.”
There are no set guidelines for entries to the classic car show, and owners are invited to display their cars at no charge, according to Terry Dason, executive director of the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce.
Along with the classic car show, “Let Loose on Lincoln” features live musical entertainment. Wireless Soul, a band that features music geared for children, is scheduled from 2- 2:30 p.m. The NSMI staff band from the North Shore Music Institute in Northfield, featuring Grammy winning percussionist Jim Hynes and renowned guitar player Louie Zagoras, is scheduled to play from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. Pop-country band GPS Unplugged takes the stage from 4 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. The headliner act, King Saturday, brings its lively mixture of roots rock, jam and country to rock the stage from 6-8 p.m.
“We wanted to bring more people from outside the area to our beautiful community, so we decided to try something new,” Dason said.
“Let Loose on Lincoln” is jointly organized by the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce and the Winnetka Park District, and is being held in conjunction with the Winnetka Sidewalk Sale. Auto traffic will not be permitted on Lincoln Avenue south of Elm during the event, which is scheduled from 2-8 p.m. and will take place rain or shine.
