Syracuse Nationals July 17-19 Information and Ticket Giveaway




The 16th annual PPG Syracuse Nationals, this year presented by Fastrac Markets and Your Local Ford Store, will kick off this summer at the New York State Fairgrounds, Friday, July 17, through Sunday, July 19! The event is open to hot rods, muscle cars, classics and customs manufactured in 1980 and before.

The Syracuse Nationals, which started as an idea in the summer of 1999, has grown each year since its record-setting debut in July 2000, when more than 4,300 vehicles filled the facility with bright-colored hot rods and sounds of roaring engines. In 2014, the PPG Syracuse Nationals drew more than 88,000 people and 8,022 classic cars, from 30 states and three Canadian provinces, to the Fairgrounds making it one of the largest Auto Shows in the country!

Highlights for the 2015 Syracuse Nationals:

· Celebrity appearances by Kenny Youngblood, one of the most prolific artists in the car field; Steve Magnante, former technical editor of Hot Rod magazine, former member of the cast of “Hot Rod Magazine TV” and former host of “Classic Car Restoration” on DIY Network; the cast of “Shift and Steer,” a live podcast that features a variety of automotive programming that focuses not only on the performance automotive industry, but also on the human experience and the passion that drives all enthusiasts; and Candy Clark, who starred as Debbie Dunham in the film “American Graffiti.”

· More than 400 automotive-related vendors and manufacturers.

· A Women’s World, consisting of more than 50 non-automotive-related vendors and exhibitors, will be held in the Art & Home Center.

· Syracuse Mini Nationals, a model car contest, will be held in the Center of Progress Building’s North Wing. The contest area will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. All models must be registered by 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Prizes will be awarded at noon Sunday.

· This year, the “Garage Gear Giveaway” will be awarded at the end of the PPG Syracuse Nationals to one lucky car registrant. The winner will have his or her garage equipped with the latest and greatest hand tools, power tools, cabinets and more.

· American Muscle Sunday will be held again on Sunday, July 19. Owners with vehicles newer than 1981 will be allowed to display their cars at the Fairgrounds Sunday only. Registration will take place at Gate 7 from 7 to 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Taco Bell Summer Reading Program at Liverpool Public Library - Earn Free Tacos & Twists!



My kids and I stopped into the Liverpool Public Library today to sign up for the Summer Reading Program! It only took a few minutes to sign up and we walked away excited to further our reading skills over the summer.

Besides the library offering their own prizes for reading this summer, the Liverpool library is lucky to be one of the few libraries around offering a reading program from Taco Bell as well!

You can pick up the form to participate at the Liverpool Public Library either in the Children's Room or included in your summer reading bag. Kids need to read 10 Books this summer, write them down on the form and then bring the form back to the library. The website says that the librarian will give a certificate good for a FREE Seasoned Beef Taco and Cinnamon Twists to all kids that read 10 Books!

My kiddos love Taco Bell so this will be a no brainer for us!

Note that this is NOT a country wide promotion. The website states that 15 or fewer libraries participate each year and Liverpool Public Library happens to be one of them this year.
