The 10th annual New Hope Automobile Show Road Rally kicks off at 10 a.m. Sunday, July 28, from the New Hope-Solebury High School, 180 W. Bridge St., New Hope.

A lead-in to The New Hope Automobile Show, it is sponsored by Solebury Parks and Recreation.

Registration is limited to 50 cars; register and pay the $50 entry fee at All drivers must be licensed and insured. All automobiles – classic and current models – are welcome.

A Road Rally is a scavenger hunt on wheels. It is recommended to have at least a two-person team – a driver and a navigator – as participants wind their way through the back roads of Bucks County.

Each team receives a list of questions guiding them to the destination, where everyone is provided with lunch and prizes are awarded, including a prize for last place.
