Visitors to the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s Spring Auto Show and Family Fun Day on Saturday, May 14 will find more than automobiles, trucks and motorcycles on the huge Saratoga Spa State Park show field.
Chief among the family oriented attractions will be the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a huge mobile dental facility. Staffed by the St. Peter’s Hospital Dental Center staff, the Care Mobile will be available for dental screenings and a relaxed introduction to dental care for children highlighted by the appearance of Ronald McDonald.
Other family oriented attractions at the annual fund raiser for the museum’s educational program will include representatives from Cornell Cooperative Extension presenting demonstrations on proper car seat installation, Saratoga County Sheriffs with a display of Patrol Car technology and representatives of the regional Ford Model T Club with the Model T Experience, a great look at automotive history.
Pre-registrations at $10 each are now being taken online for the Auto Show, which will have Ford Model T’s, Ford Model A’s, street rods and muscle cars as the featured marques for 2016. But all makes and models are welcome for the huge “Cruise-in” style event that traditionally fills the vast Saratoga Spa State Park lawn and reflecting pool area with vehicles and enthusiasts.
Show admission will once again include admission to the adjacent automobile museum, where visitors can enjoy the soon to end “Real Steel: Stories of Automotive Archaeology” exhibit along with the Made in New York and Racing in New York exhibit. The vintage race cars of the Atlantic Cost Old Timers will also be on display at the museum along with representatives of the Mo-Hud Region of the Sports Car Club of America.

Information on the museum’s distracted driving program, the Tire Rack Street Survival driving school on 4/23/16 and SAM’s exciting summer lawn show program that traditionally highlights summer in Saratoga can also be found there.
