NEW BRITAIN - Klingberg Family Centers is expanding its popular annual Vintage Motorcar Festival into a series.

Rather than a one-day, six-hour event, the car show is transforming into the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Series - five three-hour events on five separate days.

Each event will be held on a Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon and feature a traditional auto show for cars from 1979 and earlier, special-feature cars and a display of elaborately restored automobiles.

Velocity’s Chasing Classic Cars host Wayne Carini and his daughter, Lindsay, will be back as grand marshals of the series.

As always, money raised during the car shows will benefit Klingberg Family Centers’ programs helping children and families.

“As the festival has grown over the past 25 years to the point where we are bursting the seams of a limited campus and staff, we see this expansion as the next natural step in the evolution of our events,” said Mark Johnson, vice president of Klingberg Family Centers.

The first show of the series will be from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 21, at Klingberg Family Centers, 370 Linwood St. General admission is $10, for seniors is $8 and children 12 and under are free.
