Organizers consider ACD Fest a huge success


AUBURN, Ind. (WANE)- Organizers of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival said Monday that they consider this year’s event to have been a huge success.

The festival kicked off Thursday and just wrapped up Sunday. It featured hundreds of classic cars, a parade, and food.

A portion of the money raised from the festival goes to museums around Auburn.

“We’ve got more cars, more people, more things to do this year than ever before, so I think it’s bigger and better than it’s ever been,” said Sarah Payne, the festival’s executive director. “The festival’s mission is to promote and celebrate automotive heritage in our town, which is so important in keeping that history alive, so it engages the community like never before.”

Organizers also said they have already started planning next year’s festival.
