The second annual Live United Aroostook Auto Rally is set to take place on Saturday, June 3rd.

United Way

The event is a fundraiser for United Way Aroostook.  Last year’s event drew more than 75 car aficionados from all over the state.  Those 75 cars were showcased at four locations along the 120-mile route which spanned the entire county.

The rally, which isn’t a race but more of a rolling car show, will begin the morning of June 3rd with registration and light snacks and coffee at York’s of Houlton at 9:30am.  It will continue to Presque Isle with a stop at Percy’s Auto Sales for a BBQ lunch at about 11:30am.  For an ice cream dessert, the rolling auto show will make a stop at Burger Boy in Caribou at approximately 1:30pm. From there, participants will travel the long route to Fort Kent for the final stop at the Lion’s Pavilion which will include a dinner. Arrival in Fort Kent is set to occur at about 4:00pm.  Residents at each city’s stop are encouraged to come out, see the cars, talk with the owners, and enjoy the activities at each location.

United Way

The inaugural Live United Aroostook Auto Rally was started last year as a fun way to bring together the great and generous people involved in the collector-car hobby, and to highlight the fact that the United Way is involved in helping people of Aroostook County from Houlton to Fort Kent.

The $50 registration fee for participants includes the rally, an event t-shirt, vinyl package for the entrant’s car, food at all four stops, and of course some beautiful scenery along the route! Since this is a fundraiser for United Way, participants are encouraged, but not required, to gather $100 sponsors for their individual car.  Those who do will receive an individual sponsor logo to display on their automobile.
