eTradeWire News/10518338
Every Event on the Schedule Has a Little Bit of Something Themed Specific to the Era

CARLISLE, Pa. - April 18, 2019 - eTradeWire -- Nixon was in the White House, Woodstock overtook a New York field, the Beatles were king, man was landing on the moon and Detroit was manufacturing some of the most iconic cars of all time.  It all happened in 1969 and 50 years later, a little bit of the famed Summer of '69 will take center stage at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.

While the season schedule for Carlisle Events has seen two of its events completed, the core of its season remains.  From Spring Carlisle (April 24-28) through Fall Carlisle (October 2-6) and everything in between, guests who come to America's Automotive Hometown will find something a little nostalgic about their experience.  Call it a 50-year class reunion, because the displays, imagery and even some musical ambiance will transport guests back in time.

The shows themselves will offer special displays, more specifically starting with the Carlisle Ford (May 31-June 2) Nationals and concluding with Corvettes at Carlisle (August 22-25).  Ford weekend, presented by Meguiars, hosts the 50th Birthday celebration of the Mach 1, the 50th anniversary of the Boss, 50th anniversary of the Eliminator and celebrates the 50th of the Maverick.  Up next is the Chevrolet Nationals (June 21-22) which is also the first official show of Summer.  This weekend spotlights the 50th birthday of the Blazer as well as the GTO Judge.  In addition, Buildings T and Y will have featured displays including cars from 1969.

As June transitions to July, the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals (July 12-14) are up next.  50-year honors for this event include a 50th tribute to the Dodge Charger Daytona & 500, the A12 Road Runner & Super Bee, the M Code A-Body as well as a featured vehicle showcase of some of the best Mopars ever made in 1969.  In August, the Carlisle Truck Nationals (August 2-4) and Corvettes at Carlisle help wrap the specialty events at Carlisle.  Truck weekend will offer a look at some of the coolest trucks ever made and spotlight the $69/69 second burnout contest, while Corvettes at Carlisle, presented by Corvette America, will host a massive display of 1969 Corvettes.  Carlisle Auctions will even offer a '60s Power Hour during its events.

Common themes across all events include branding and special graphics specific to the theme.  This includes flags around the grounds, plus signs and banners near main entry gates.  In addition, Carlisle Events is offering a Summer of '69 souvenir cup.  As part of each event, a "Flash Sale" will pop up on social media.  From there, the first 69 people to order tickets online will also get the cup.  In addition, a limited amount of cups will be available with a qualifying purchase in the Carlisle Store.  The cup will also be available as a stand-alone purchase from any concessionaire too.  Another season long giveaway will be a special Summer of '69 sticker.  These stickers will be available on grounds as well as in Guest Services for registered Showfield participants.

Opportunities will also be available to win money in at least two different ways in 2019.  While the standard burnout contest continues with the three-minute time limit, NEW this year only, anyone who pops a tire in 69 seconds or less will win $69 cash.  Speaking of cash, an inflatable cash machine will come to life at most events providing several chances throughout the weekend to fill your pockets.  For that, select guests will have the chance to snag the flying dollars.  Contestant 1 each day starts with the chance to snag $69.  What's left remains, meaning contestant 2 has the chance at $69, plus whatever was left over…and so on.

Complete details on each event are available at the all-new www.CarlisleEvents.com or by calling 717-243-7855.  Cruise to Carlisle this summer.  It'll be groovy man!
