Hershey, PA (May 23, 2018) Spring has sprung and car show season at the AACA Museum, Inc. has begun! The Cars 4 Critters Car Show kicked off the start of our car show season on May 12th with a fabulous turnout! By the request of our attendees, we expanded the show this year to include a variety of makes and models of vehicles, not just exotic sports cars. By reworking the format of the show, we were able to have more on macadam parking, especially for those vehicles that are lower to the ground. We’re delighted to support Castaway Critters The James A. Hueholt Memorial Foundation for Animals, as a fundraising partner for this event. Thankfully, the thunderstorms held off and, we were able to honor some of the attendees with show awards. Congratulations to our award winners:
- Best American – Todd Hoover – 2002 Dodge Viper
- Best Asian – Bryan McCree – 2013 Scion FR-5
- Best British – Jere Haigh – 2015 Ultima

As a special treat, Chase the new K-9 officer from Lower Paxton Township came out to greet our guests. Castaway Critters was also onsite with several dogs that are in search of their forever homes.
We would like to thank Tom Russel, Chief Meteorologist from CBS 21 for being our master of ceremonies for this event and for bringing out his “weather weenie” pup.
