2013 Lake Mirror Classic Concours d’Elegance
Date: Oct. 18-20, 2013
Time: See Event Schedule
Place: Downtown Lakeland
The Lake Mirror Classic hosts many different events during the three day festival. There are three events into which you may enter your classic auto, boat or motorcycle. These events are the Hot Rod Rendezvous, Open Car Show, Hemmings Road Tour and the Concours d’Elegance.
The Lake Mirror Classic is presented free to the public and made possible because of tremendous support from numerous corporate sponsors. Please join us in thanking these sponsors for presenting the Lake Mirror Classic.
Beginning in 2013, the mission of the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival will be to help fund the preservation and restoration of historic Lake Mirror Park so that our community and it’s guests will be able to enjoy this nationally registered landmark for many generations to come. In addition to the Friends of Lake Mirror Fund, the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival supports local non-profit groups by helping them raise needed funds through the sale of food and beverage at the event. Over $250,000 has been raised or donated to local charities because of the Lake Mirror Classic. The event has helped Junior Achievement, Pied Piper Players, Boy Scouts, The First Tee, Historic Lakeland, Lakeland Regional Cancer Center.
The featured event of the Lake Mirror Classic is Saturday’s Concours d’Elegance. Featuring a selection of 125 cars, the judged Concours is presented along and adjacent to Lake Mirror Park’s promenade. Previous shows have included illustrious examples of prewar classics such as Cadillac, Cord, Duesenberg, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz and Rolls Royce. The Concours d’Elegance is the judged section of the show and is limited to selected vehicles which must fit within one of the defined classes (see this page) and be pre-approved by our selection committee.
