Salisbury Concours Social
In September we are going to try something a little different on the social front, and meet up at Caribou Coffee on Ingersoll before heading over to the 2012 Salisbury Concours d’Elegance. This special concours focuses on classic automobiles, which are judged on their elegance and beauty.
Here, you can view beautiful, classic BMWs and other collector cars such as the 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540K from last year’s event at the Salisbury House Concours d’Elegance. This year’s theme is BMW, and there will be cars from all over the country displaying at the historic Salisbury House.
The Concours is on Sunday, Sept. 9 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The BMW club is meeting at the Caribou Coffee, 3220 Ingersoll Ave. in Des Moines at 9 a.m. before heading over to the event.
Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for students and children 12 and under are free. All proceeds from the Salisbury Concours d’Elegance benefit the educational programs and restoration work of the Salisbury House Foundation.
