Cars, trucks, campers and motorcycles — antique, vintage, classic — join food, fun and music at the Second Annual WAAAM Traffic Jam, 1600 Air Museum Road, July 12-13, a benefit for The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum in Hood River.
“Cruise the gut” through Hood River July 12 beginning at 6 p.m., then put on your dancing shoes for a few hours of music at the museum beginning at 8 p.m. The evening will finish with a Drive-In Movie at 10 p.m.
The movie will be shown on the back wall of the museum, and participants will park their cars on the grass — and, perhaps, sit outside of their cars if it gets too hot. Popcorn, hot dogs and a beer garden will be available.
On July 13, visit the car show at the museum. Special admission will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids, which includes entry to the car show and the museum. Other Saturday events:
8 a.m. — Museum opens
8-11 a.m. — Lions Breakfast
9 a.m. — Demos, classes, vintage pedal cars and more
11 a.m. — Lunch starts
Noon — Judging begins on car show
1 p.m. — Model T Quick Build Challenge (back by popular demand)
3 p.m. — Trophies and awards
5 p.m. — Museum closes
Those wishing to share a vintage auto — 30 years or older — can register online at www.waaamuseum.org. Registration is $25 per vehicle; WAAAM members pay $15.
Dry camping will be available for $8 a night. Volunteers are needed for the event. Contact Steve Tolson at trafficjam@waaamuseum. org to volunteer.
