Annual Car Show Benefits Hermon Recreation Department

HERMON, Maine (WABI) Cars, hot rods, and much more were on parade in Hermon Saturday.

It was the 5th annual Hermon car and bike show benefiting the Hermon Recreation Department.

Over 150 cars were on display.

Each car in the top three of their class went home with a trophy.

The event pairs with the town of Hermon's annual event-the "Summer Sizzler."

Organizers say this is a great opportunity to get the community together in the summer months.

"People that don't see each other, people that have different types of vehicles, people that don't even have cars and have an interest in cars and they get exposed to the vehicles instead of just seeing them drive down the road. They can come and see was actually involved in building or buying a classic."

Over a dozen businesses came together for today's event.

The fun continues tonight in Hermon with a street dance and fireworks show.
