The annual Bloomsburg Nationals car show will be held Aug. 10-12 at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds. The event actually gets started on Thursday, Aug. 9, with the event’s Gridlock on Main St. in downtown Bloomsburg, which will kick off the event and result in Main St. being closed from 6-8 p.m. to accommodate the event. Main St. will reopen at 8 p.m.
Gridlock is the parade of cars down Main St. in Bloomsburg. During Gridlock, there is also a Quaker Steak & Lube wing eating contest that is held at the front of the Columbia County Courthouse to raise money for charities. Two of the charities supported by Bloomsburg Nationals are also Chamber members: Camp Victory and the Women’s Center. Following Gridlock, the cars will cruise to Quaker Steak & Lube for a “welcome party.” The main event begins on Friday morning, Aug. 10 and runs through Sunday afternoon.
