The 16th annual Clifton Labor Day Car Show was a huge success on Monday, Sept. 7, featuring some 310 registered cars and earning approximately $30,000 for two charities: Life with Cancer and the Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program. The show held in downtown Historic Clifton featured street rods, foreign, customs, antiques, trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles and more. In the 16 years of the show's existence, more than $300,000 has been raised for different charities. The show is presented by the Clifton Lions Club and the Clifton Acacia Lodge.
"It's been a beautiful day with a great turnout," said former Clifton Mayor and show organizer Jim Chesley. "It's been stupendous; everybody has done a wonderful job."
Springfield District Supervisor Pat Herrity added: "It's one of the best kept secrets in the county; it's a special place."
