Eastern Museum of Motor Racing and Lattimore Valley Fair (June 2017)

What a Beautiful Day!

The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing in York Springs, houses an outstanding collection of vintage race cars and artifacts, as well as a research library of rare books, documents, and photos pertaining to the sport of auto racing.

The museum owns the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds in York Springs.  The fairgrounds are a 40-acre living museum dedicated to the preservation of motor racing and agricultural exposition history.  Each June EMMR and Latimore Valley host an authentic country fair, recalling the great agricultural expositions of an earlier time with a midway, craft vendors, antique tractor and engine displays, great food, entertainment, and vintage race car exhibitions on the track Saturday afternoon. 

Our section toured the museum and attended the fair, on Saturday, June 24.  Upon arrival, we first toured the extensive displays at the museum, and then either walked or shuttled to the fair ground for lunch and viewing the many older model sprint, late model and other types of race cars exhibiting on the track.  The fair had many interesting exhibits to peruse, and food vendors from which to choose our lunch.  The weather cooperated and gave us a lovely day to be outside for our trip to the fair!
