Event Description

By Land and By Sea: Antique Vehicle Show at Mystic Seaport (Mystic, CT)
Sunday, September 27, 2009
9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Join us at the 12th annual Antique Vehicle Show and get up close to a dazzling display of authentic pre-1930 “steam-era” cars, trucks and motorcycles. See the various types of vehicles that helped transport commerce from the land to the sea at the turn of the century.

Watch as the Mystic Seaport Museum village and waterfront bustle with activity as early 20th-century vehicles go about the daily business of the 1920s. Talk to the exhibitors who lovingly maintain these beauties. Enjoy a ride in an antique vehicle and experience the 20th century's newest mode of transportation (rides originate at the gas station next to the Sabino dock office).

Tour the Seaport grounds and see all the remarkable working exhibits and displays. Climb aboard the great ships or take a ride on the (100 year old) “Sabino” the oldest working Steam Launch in the USA.

Cap off the day with the Grand Parade of Vehicles at 3 p.m. Watch as the antique vehicles circle the Museum grounds in the annual event finale. It's a sight to behold! (Hint: The best place to see the parade is on the Village Green in front of the Galley Restaurant.)

We’ll be gathering in front of the Galley restaurant about 10am to begin our wanderings. Join in the fun and wear early 1900's clothing!
