Description: Every year the PPG Syracuse Nationals annual show at the New York State Fairgrounds gets larger and the 15th annual event this year was no exception.
The show exceeded expectations in all categories, crowds, cars, vendors and money raised.
Three days of perfect weather, sunny, temperatures in the low 80s, and no rain meant record crowds took advantage of the situation. When the ticket stubs were counted 88,575 people visited the three-day event for a new record.
Those visitors came for the cars and trucks and they weren’t disappointed because there were 8,022 collector vehicles on the grounds, another record.
Vendors have long recognized the importance of the PPG Syracuse Nationals as demonstrated by the fact that 448 vendors of all description were set up throughout the Fairgrounds.
