Cape May-Lewes Ferry to Hold Classic Car Shows

Posted:
By Jordan Ballard

CAPE MAY, N.J.- Cape May-Lewes Ferry officials announce that classic car exhibits are scheduled at both ferry stations as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.

The car shows are scheduled for June 28-29 at both terminals from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Registration is free.

Rhona Bronson, director of marketing for the ferry, says the classic car exhibit helps mark the ferry’s 50th anniversary festivities.

“For the past 50 years, the ferry has handled more than 14 million vehicles, the first one being a 1964 Mustang,” Bronson said. “It’ll be great to see the types of vehicles that made those early trips aboard the CMLF.”

Bronson also said both events are open to all classic makes and models of vehicles. However, 1960s-era vehicles are preferred. There will be 10 prize categories, including Best of Show, the People’s Choice, and Best of 1960s.

The Cape May Terminal Classic Car Show is set for June 28, while the Lewes
Terminal Classic Car Show kicks off June 29.

Set up begins at 7:30 a.m. Free admittance aboard the ferry will be made available to those classic car owners participating in both shows. All participants will be asked to participate in an informal march through downtown Cape May or Lewes.

Space will be scarce, says Bronson, but car owners can register online at www.cmlf.com/50th. For more information, call (609) 889-7273.

Right after the car shows on June 28 and June 29, the both terminals will host festivals to celebrate the service’s 50th anniversary – which will include live entertainment, carnival games, activities for the kids and an outdoor viewing of the WHYY documentary: “A Billion Mile Journey” on the ferry.

A dedication ceremony – to include a buried time capsule and unveiling of the legacy brick design at both stations – serves as a memory to the ferry’s 50th anniversary.

The Cape May–Lewes Ferry, operated by the Delaware River and Bay Authority, serves the Twin Capes region of Cape May, N.J. and Lewes, Del. The first ferry launched on July 1, 1964 with eight vehicles and 15 passengers. Since then, more than 43 million people and 14 million vehicles have crossed the Delaware Bay.
