The Honk-About Car Show was such a big hit last week that the city-wide extravaganza will be repeated on the first Sunday of every month through Sept. 6. The Erie Shore Cruisers Car Club and Port Clinton officials created the first show, and are ready to make it a summer mainstay this year.
The Honk-About Car Show will be Port Clinton’s answer to state restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As a club, we wanted to get the cars out to entertain the many people who have enjoyed our car shows in years past,” said club official Kenny Holcomb. “It’s unlikely we’ll have any car shows, including our big show on Adams Street in Port Clinton, and our regular weekly shows at the local Pizza Hut.”
Membership in the Erie Shore Cruisers Car Club had been required for their car shows in years past. For last week’s show, and the Honk-About Car Shows on June 7, July 5, Aug. 2 and Sept. 6, all will begin at 2 p.m. from the Sutton center Parking lot in front of Port Clinton City Hall.

The dozens of cars and trucks that entered last week followed Port Clinton fire and emergency vehicles, which had their lights flashing and horns blaring. It went up and down just about every city street, with car horns honking. There was a lot of waving to people on their porches and in their front yards, following Ohio rules for social distancing and crowds.
