Downtown Columbus traffic to be restricted during Hot Rods event

Downtown Columbus will be taken over tomorrow by classic cars and cool hot rods as our sister station 106 1 The River holds the 25th annual Hot Rods and Rock & Roll car show from 3 to 7 p.m..

The car show will be along Washington Street and its side streets between Third and Eighth streets. Those streets will be closed before, during and after the car show.

If you want to take part in the car show, registration starts at 8 a.m. in the morning at the staging area in the Bartholomew County parking lot across Second Street from the jail. Registration will be going on until 1:30 p.m.  Staff will be directing vehicles to parking spaces in the show area, 10 at a time. If you don’t register, you will not be allowed to park your vehicle in the car show area.

Seating is not allowed on the sidewalk. Car owners are asked to sit in the street between their vehicles and the sidewalk.

When you are taking your classic vehicle home, you are asked to drive north on Washington Street and to exit at Eighth Street.

There will be a free concert with Rick K. & the All-nighters starting at 7 on the stage near Third and Washington Streets.
