Once a month, year round, there is a great family event hosted by the community of Plant City, FL, in the downtown historic area in and around McCall Park.  On the third Saturday of the month, starting at 4 PM, is the Strawberry Classic Automobile Show.  On the first Saturday of the month, starting at 5 PM is the Bike Fest motorcycle show.  Both events conclude at 9 PM, and both are great family oriented events.   As you can see in the photos, the quality, age, style and class of the cars is varied, with muscle, brass era, lowriders, hi boys, low boys, full restorations, rat rods, European, dune buggies, even exotics, likely to show up on any given Saturday night.  One of the reasons to return over and over is because you never really know what will show up!   A family atmosphere prevai...
