Uptown Whittier’s Annual Car Show returned for its 16th year running this past Saturday, taking place two months earlier than usual. A free outdoor event for all ages, hundreds of classic and custom cars filled the streets of Uptown Whittier covering much of Greenleaf Avenue and side streets from Hadley St down to Penn St. Thousands of visitors swarmed the streets to gaze upon all of the cars for photos or pure admiration throughout the day. All of the local businesses remained open during this time, so many visitors also got a chance to explore the local flavor of Uptown Whittier. In addition to all the cars on display, visitors also experienced live music, various vendors, a play area for children, and pinup models that apparently modeled for a calendar shoot at this car show. For a car show that has lasted 16 years, it has gained a strong following in the automotive industry, which paved the way for it to get its own calendar shoot.

The quaint community of Uptown Whittier holds events often throughout the year, such as a street beer festival and a Miss Uptown Whittier contest. If you appreciate small town charm, give Uptown Whittier a like on Facebook and a follow on Twitter. In the meantime, check out the photos I took at this year’s car show:
