Final preparations are being set in place for November 6, 2021 by the members of the Downtown Business Alliance to stage the Heritage Car Show, an annual main event on Celebration Plaza. Much pre-show labor is involved for members in setting up and moving barriers, issuing placement to the vehicles as they arrive, and getting the vehicles parked and situated properly around the Plaza. The Car Show has long been a popular attraction for Sulphur Springs, a major fundraiser for the DBA, and a fun, well-organized go-to contest for car-lovers of this region of Texas. In their invitation to car owners to register for the 2021 event, it was explained that the show is open to vehicles 1987 or older, registration would be open from September 1 to October 16, and that the first 50 entries would receive one Car Show T-shirt and a Dash Plaque. And more than 50 entries are expected for this year’s show! They will fill the Plaza with color, class and style! And, excellent Fall weather is also expected!
Plan to be downtown on Saturday November 6 to view all the beautiful specimens, meet the owners and see who the winners will be. Also, plan to shop, eat and enjoy the sights of beautiful downtown Sulphur Springs, the Veterans Memorial and the Hopkins County Courthouse.
An additional local attraction on Saturday November 6 will be the Vietnam Veterans Parade which will cross the square at 3:35 pm Saturday afternoon. And, an exclusive visit by ‘The Wall That Heals’ Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall will be going on in Sulphur Springs November 4-7, 2021. All 375 feet of the amazing, authentic display will be set up at the Sulphur Springs High School track at 1200 Houston Street, open 24 hours a day and free to all visitors. The unique Sulphur Springs stop is the only Texas site-visit this Fall for the 3/4 size replica. It was created to “Welcome Home America’s Vietnam Veterans”, fifty years after the war, and an accompanying Mobile Education Center is also part of the free tour. Visitors are expected for many Texas cities and from neighboring states to visit “The Wall That Heals” in Sulphur Springs during the weekend of November 4-7, 2021.
