IMLAY CITY — Few sights signal the arrival of spring more than the re-appearance of those "hot" classic cars and trucks that have been stored away for the winter.

You'll be able to see a lot of them in one place this Saturday, May 10, when the Eastern Michigan Auto Fest comes to the Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m..

Sponsored by Imlay City Ford-Lincoln Mercury, the 2008 Auto Fest includes a swap meet, an auction at 11 a.m., a craft show, food vendors, manufacturers' midway and entertainment.

Admission to the event is free, with a $5 fee for parking. On-site overnight camping is also available. The auction is scheduled for 11 a.m.

Fairgrounds Manager Ian Kempf predicts good fun for participants and visitors.

"This is a huge event for us," says Kempf. "It has surpassed all of our expectations in terms of participation. We're getting filled up with vendors, and I'm anticipating 80-100 cars to go across the auction block."

Kempf points out the Auto Fest is a great event for the entire family, and the perfect kickoff to spring activities.

"We encourage families to pack up all the kids and come out," says Kempf. "It's only five bucks and a great day for everyone.

"It's all shaping up to be a great weekend and the weather reports are looking good, too."

More information about the Auto Fest is available at www.easternmichiganautofest.com, or by calling Fair Manager Ian Kempf at 810-417-0395.

The Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds is located on Van Dyke (M-53), north of the I-69 Freeway.
