MIDDLETOWN TOPPER

This is the topper that’s for sale at the Car & Truck & Tractor Show.

Middletown is holding its ninth annual Car & Truck & Tractor Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Middletown Mayor Charles Harbaugh said he hopes for at least 250 cars, trucks and tractors lining Middletown’s streets.

“The cars are cool,” Harbaugh said.

The town will close Main Street (Route 11) from First to Fifth streets for the event.

The event will once again offer for sale 200 collectible town tags, also called a license plate topper. Similar toppers were used from 1948 to 1968.

This year’s topper feature the town’s logo embossed on it.

Proceeds of the town fundraiser go toward Middletown’s Fourth of July parade.

There also will be raffle tickets for some door prizes that Harbaugh said he is excited about, including a vacation to Massanutten Water Park, including a round of golf; wine tasting at Bluemont Winery; a Redskins player Josh Norman signed football; other Redskins items, gift cards; car wash supplies; a Civil War painting and more.

Registration for the event is $10 and check-in is from 10 a.m. to noon at the former Wayside Theater, at the corner of 2nd and Main streets. To preregister, call 540-877-4594.

The event is sponsored by City National Bank, Thomas Lash Esquire and Stingray Motors.
