Calling all car show fans! Come out for a car show unlike any other: the 24th Annual Ford & Mustang Round Up. See hundreds of Fords, early and late from bone-stock to highly modified, on the lush grounds at Silver Springs State Park on January 13. A family-fun setting that’s been heralded as a great alternative to a parking lot show, cars and trucks are displayed inside the park with plenty of shade to enjoy viewing the cars. Show hosts National Parks Depot (NPD) has also invited several select manufacturers to attend and display their latest products and answer questions. Fastback ’65 will play two sets of music, and there will be a bounce house for kids.
In addition to checking out the cars, visitors can take a glass bottom boat tour or rent a canoe or kayak. Food and beverage service is available at the Springside Restaurant as well as the Paradise Treats Fudge & Ice Cream shop. There will also be food trucks near the main event area.
Enter the park through the main entrance located at 5656 East Silver Springs Boulevard (State Road 40).
