Columbus Day Italian car show?

Hello everyone...wow didn't know this site is where everyone went when the shit hit the fan on Rob's site....it's been a long time since I've had time to post.
Here goes.
I was involved in organizing the Italian car show in Little Italy a number of years back. Growing up there, I never imagined that I would see all those magnificent cars parked on the streets I grew up on...it was amazing.
Then..."concorsgate" as Jim called it and that was the beginning of the end. It only lasted 2 more years in Harbor East.

I still yearn to see the Italian exotics return to Little Italy where IMO they belong. I think I have a way.
I have been involved in organizing the street festivals there for the past 5 years and was asked to help with the Columbus Day Celebration in Oct.
We ended up shutting down one of the streets and I noticed we had quite a bit of space. It dawned on me that that space could be filled with Italian cars. Since we're kicking off the month of OCT., which celebrates Italian heritage and the contributions Italians have made to the world, what better way?
Just trying to gauge interest and a format.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
Thanks,

I'm in if it doesn't conflict with the Annapolis Sons of Italy Columbus Day Festival, which it didn't this year. We had about a dozen cars on display at their inaugural event this year - and one Lambo Gallardo.

It shouldn't, the organizers contacted us regarding the conflict and moved the Annapolis event...
We appreciate the consideration.

Thinking about possibly doing an early morning drive through northern Baltimore County. Not unlike the drive we did when MOB was in Towson., and ending up as part of the Columbus Parade. Staging begins around 11:00 am near Federal Hill? ...just to mix things up. After participation in the parade we could line the cars up on the closed street? What do you guys think about this? Might be difficult to do logistically?

A lot of the people live south of Baltimore, northern Baltimore is a hike for many of us. Some as far away as Charles and St Marys county.

Can we do a drive through AACo and Howard Co into Baltimore?

If it's held on a Sunday, we will just caravan from Annapolis City Dock CnC.

Good to see you on here Will. I like the idea. Some really good roads out Howard to Baltimore county. I'd be up for staging away from the city though. Federal Hill roads suck and the traffic isn't much better. looking forward to more discussion.

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Sounds good....as it is on a Sunday. I was thinking Northern Baltimore county only because I already have a route and we could come down I-83 to stage at Fed Hill? Again, I'm just throwing things out for discussion and appreciate all the input.

Hey Jim, Thanks, nice to be back in touch...you guys have more experience with those areas than I do and I'm sure the roads out that way are great too. When I mentioned staging, I was referring to staging for the parade, if we decide to participate.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing you soon...maybe a trip to Annapolis C&C is in order?

What Al said..... come on down to Annapolis. We have a pie run on Thanksgiving. Lots of very cool cars including some old muscle cars from the 60's and 70's.

A drive through Balt Co is a good idea as the roads are exceptional up there. Howard Co is also excellent for driving...either would work.

I could assist with drive route planning.

Getting the cars to Little Italy could be the challenge but I am sure it can be done coming down 83.

Bump. Think this will happen? What info do you have - date, specific location, street?
I can't do the drive (the roads in northern Baltimore County are fantastic).
Love to bring my Challenge car but Little Italy and that general area is really tight for trailer stuff.
