Celebrate the King Midget car in Hermitage

July 8, 2012 by  

The International King Midget Car Club Jamboree will take place in and around Hermitage from August 9-11. Owners of King Midget cars will be touring around the area and the public will have a chance to get close up and personal to the cars.

Those who own King Midget cars can register to take part in the Jamboree for $25. In addition, they can choose to pay extra for tours of places like the Jay Ice Cream Cone Factory, a trip to Tara and the Lake Pymatung wildlife sanctuary. The Jamboree will end with a banquet at the Quality Inn on August 11. The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children 10 and under; there will be a choice between chicken or pork chops. Door prizes will be given out at the banquet; local companies are being urged to donate those door prizes.

Organizers of the event will no doubt be working with Hermitage printing companies to prepare for the Jamboree. Arranging for services such as banner printing will help them to decorate the banquet hall or to highlight the fact that the Jamboree is coming to town by hanging them around town.

The King Midget Car was manufactured in the United States from 1946 to 1970. It was the first car to have automatic transmission, it had great fuel economy and it was very light, yet strong. It was called “America’s Smallest Car” decades before the Smart Car was introduced to the world. This event is the perfect way to celebrate this historic car.
