Forecast for rain on Saturday moves car show to the following week
“Romancing the Chrome,” the largest car show of its kind in Northeastern Maryland, has been postponed to Saturday, April 16, due to the forecast for rain on Saturday, April 9, its original date.
The fifth annual car show will take place April 16 with activities as originally scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Jarrett’s Field, 3719 Norrisville Road, across from the Jarrettsville Library in Jarrettsville. Romancing the Chrome is family friendly, and admission is free of charge.
Organized by the Harford County Public Library Foundation and Jarrettsville Lions Club, Romancing the Chrome features more than 200 automobiles, music, vendors, contests, food concessions, a beer garden and more. The Headlining Sponsor is Keene Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram.
Car show owners will compete for the $500 Best in Show prize plus a Best in Class (first prize) of $75. Awards also will be presented for second and third place in each class.
MotorWeek’s Lauren Morrison will be the celebrity judge for the Best in Show competition.
Romancing the Chrome is a fundraiser for its organizers, Harford County Public Library Foundation and the Jarrettsville Lions Club. In 2015, nearly 200 car enthusiasts participated in the show, and approximately 2,000 people attended, raising almost $11,000 that was split by both organizations.
