We will probably schedule a meet up for all Fieros at some place like the Auburn Inn on Interstate 69 and St. Hwy 8 before we go downtown to the show - that way we can all park together at the show. Anyone who is interested in attending should post in this thread so I can keep track of how many people plan on bringing Fieros. As we get closer to the show date, I'll post up what time to meet at the Auburn Inn.

You can count on Capital City Fiero Club to bring as many cars as we can.

We had two cars there last year and it was an absolutely great evening!

If you only attend one show a year, this should be it!

I'm a "maybe". If the car gets running (safely) and I have the day off, it sounds like a blast.

Just curious...I just noticed the time for the meet (5 PM.) Is the meet in the evening or is that just the time for registration? If the actual event's Saturday, I'll need a room somewhere. I'm asking so I can make hotel reservations early. PM me or drop me an email....doni@donihagan.com.

Thanks!!

Well there are alot of things going on all weekend but the downtown cruise-in is Friday evening. If you're into muscle cars, I would suggest going to the kruse auction while you are here. Usually there are a few exotics and antique collector cars also. I heard the ticket prices are going down this year, which is good because they used to be right around $30. If you would be interested in going to the Auction I would recommend getting a hotel soon, if not the cruise in usually runs til 11ish. The auction is projected to have somewhere in the area of 1500-2000 cars this year. Hope that helps!

Yes the cruise-in car show is supposed to kick off around 5pm Friday evening. But in truth, people will be showing up trying to grab good parking spots (as close to the downtown square as possible) probably as early as noon Friday if not a little earlier - even though they are no supposed to. I would say to be there by 3:30-4pm at the latest in order to get a decent spot. I think they had 600-700 cars attend this show last year, so the streets surrounding the downtown square will fill up quick. And yes it does go on until late in the night.

Just talked to my buddy up there in Auburn about the show on Friday, Sept 3rd. He says we will want to be downtown by about 4:30pm. So that means anyone who wants to meet to caravan down towards the show in one group should meet up by no later than 4pm. A good place to meet would be the Wal-Mart parking lot near the Auburn Inn which is just off of the St Hwy 8 and Interstate-69 interchange. I don't want to try to meet in the parking lot of the Auburn Inn because I believe they will be full due to the guests staying there for the ACD Festival. The out lot of Wal-Mart should be open and I don't think it will be a problem to meet there starting at 4pm as long as we leave by around 4:15pm to head downtown (the drive to downtown isn't very far at all but will probably take 15+min due to the amount of traffic I anticipate will be there).

I did get mailed a registration form for this show and the fee is $10 for the Friday show and the official time is 5pm to ??? (whenever they decide to shut it down).

I also received an information packet for the show that had a few rules on it I want to pass along:
 
quote

PROHIBITED:
-Pets
-Bicycles
-Skateboards
-Scooters
-Unauthorized Vendors
-Unauthorized Golf Carts

PARKING:
Watch for designated parking areas throughout Auburn. Select areas will be reserved at different times during the weekend based upon events. These areas will be clearly marked. If a vehicle is parking in a reserved or restricted parking area without permission, it will be towed at the owner's expense. There is ample parking all around downtown, spreading into the residential area.

FOR THOSE ENTERING THE SHOW:
Entry points will be N & S Main Street, Auburn at Main & 5th & 12th. No entrance on 7th St.


7th Street is the main drag that we will use to travel to the downtown area from Wal-Mart, we will turn off of this once we get downtown to get to one of the entry points listed above - our caravan will choose the best route and entrance based on traffic at the time we arrive. Late-arrivals: you are on your own!

Can't wait to see you there! Remember, if you want to join the Caravan to go downtown together as part of the group, be at the outer most portion of the Auburn Wal-Mart parking lot between 4pm and 4:14pm (look for all the Fieros). We will be leaving at 4:15pm.

Here's a map of the event: http://acdfestival.org/html/acdmap.html

EDIT: Please see revised schedule (meeting time) in my later post.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

I received an email from the Auburn Police Dept who apparantly found my thread here on PFF:

 
quote

Greetings,

My name is Lieutenant Mark Stump with the Auburn Police Department. I am one of the officers responsible for the cruise in on Friday, September 3rd, 2010 mentioned recently on the Fiero website forum. In researching several sites to determine some of the participants, I read in some of the postings that several of its members are planning on attending the event and there was some discussion on when to arrive. In years past participants have arrived earlier and earlier each year causing quite a bit of confusion and congestion in the downtown area. This year, as a result, all vehicles including cruise in participants will be removed from the cruise in location at 4:00pm. They will be sent to a staging area at the DeKalb County Fairgrounds until the 5:00 PM gate open time arrives. I am providing you this information so that your members do not arrive too early only to have to leave and stage elsewhere while the cruise in is organized and the streets closed. I would suggest that your group stage somewhere on the west end of the city near the I-69 interchange and then travel as a group shortly before 5:00pm to one of the cruise in entrances located at either Main Street @ 5th Street or Main Street @ 12th Street. I would recommend the 5th Street location as the majority of the fairground traffic will come in the other location (possibility of a long line).

We hope to see your group here and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Mark A. Stump, Lt.
Auburn Police Department
210 South Cedar Street
Auburn, Indiana 46706
(260) 920-3200 x1917


As a result of this email, our plans have changed. We will now meet up at Wal-Mart at about 4:40pm and won't leave from there until 4:50pm to ensure we don't arrive downtown earlier than the 5pm gate opening time. Per Mark's advice, we will be using the 5th Street entrance. Everybody who is planning on meeting up please make note of the schedule change.

Hey, Ryan--thanks for the great pics of this show! We were in Auburn about 4 yrs. ago for the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane National Meet. Great little town and the Duesenberg Museum is gorgeous! We went back after the Fiero 25th two years ago to the Kruse Military History Museum. Lots of great history in that area! Thanks again!
