One of Bishop’s biggest annual events, the unmissable Fall Colors Cruise & Car Show, is coming to the town’s Tri-County Fairgrounds from October 6 to October 8. Here are five reasons why any self-confessed petrol-head would be crazy to miss it…

1. It’s Beautiful

The show takes place at a particularly pretty time of year in Bishop, California. That means that not only you can gaze upon some incredibly beautiful classic cars – you can also enjoy all of the beauty of the Eastern Sierra’s magnificent fall colors. Mother Nature puts on a spellbinding show at this time of year - - with the trees ablaze in hues of orange, yellow, gold and crimson – which provides a magnificent backdrop to the Cruise and Car Show.

2. Everyone’s Invited

The cruise is open to 1974 and older classics, street rods, customs, trucks and special interest vehicles, so you can expect to see an amazing selection of vehicles.

3. There’ll be Sweet Treats

Catch the pancake breakfast on Saturday from 7:30am until 10am or coffee and donuts on Sunday from 8am to 10am. It’s a great way to start the day and to rub shoulders with other petrol heads.

4. There will be Arts & Crafts Galore

Take a stroll around the Altrusa International’s Fine Art Show or the Fall Colors Craft Fair on Saturday from 9am to 4pm. There’ll be a fabulous selection of arts and crafts to choose from.

5. It’s Free

Yes, you heard right. Watching all the action at the Fall Colors Cruise & Car Show will not cost you a dime. It’s heaven for car-lovers!
