BURRILLVILLE – The Buckleupallofus 2022 car show season ends this weekend at imPossible Dream on Sunday, Sept., 25.
This very popular charity car show is in its 8th year, and attracts a large showing of classic cars and trucks from across the area, as well as a large crowd of spectators that also includes children of all ages. The giant Bucky balloon showcase attraction brings plenty of families to this annual car show every year, so kids can have their photos taken with the big blue seatbelt wearing dinosaur, and take home child passenger safety coloring posters, stickers and fridge magnets absolutely free.
The Warwick Police Department supports Bucky Charity Car Shows at the imPossible Dream each year by providing police cruisers, police motorcycles and canine unit with community police officers passing out all of the Bucky safety materials to kids and families. They exhibit their police department vehicles directly next to the Bucky balloon and let the kids sit in their police cruisers while talking to them about vehicle and child passenger safety.
This year, we will also have a live radio broadcast thanks to DiPonti Communications with DJ Johnny Mack playing everyone’s favorite oldies and classic rock songs, show vehicle trophies and contest give-aways. The Buckleupallofus imPossible Dream Charity Car Show is from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. All proceeds benefit the imPossible Dream Playground designed for children both abled and with disabilities to enjoy during the year. Everyone is welcome to attend. It’s fun for the entire family and it’s for a very good cause.
