Night at the Museum was held on Wednesday evening, October 8. They celebrated the Grand Opening of the Cammack Tucker Gallery. The Cammack Tucker exhibit is the largest display of Tucker automobiles, engines and other memorabilia.
It is estimated that a quarter of a million people will come to Hershey this weekend to attend the show. They say there will be over 1,500 collector cars to see here with over 1,000 of them for sale. They expect 9,000 vendors to display their collector car parts and auto related merchandise. You won’t find a swap meet this size anywhere else on the east coast. So collectors who need those hard-to-find parts will be tredging the fields of the Hersheypark this weekend hoping to find some rare treasure.
