Autumn Trials Parade and Drive – Winnsboro, TX October 26, 2019


Once again, we are going to take our fall drive to Winnsboro, TX and it will be for the 56th Annual Autumn Trails Event which is an annual month-long event for the town.  Saturday the 26nd is for Antique Cars and clubs that begins with a parade into downtown and then a car show in the city park east of town.  They also have three maps that follow the country roads outside of Winnsboro to view the fall leaf colors.  It will be a fun day with our club participating in the parade with our Mercedes cars, they will have special parking for us in the downtown area next to the Chamber of Commerce building, lunch will be a short drive to the Countryboys BBQ and Sweets restaurant.   We will be forming up for the parade in the same place as last year.   After the parade and lunch, you can visit and view the cars on display at the city park. Those who want to participate in the car show can do so on your own or you can take the side trips outlined on the Autumn Trails map thru the back roads to see the fall scenery.  Just remember to bring candy, lots of candy to throw out to the kids on the parade route.  This has been a lot of fun for our club in the past; you won’t believe all of the cars and the kids on the parade route are the most fun of all. 


Ron and Carolee Seifert will be hosting the event and the schedule follows.


Meet for check-in at 8:00 AM at the QuickTrip gas station at 1400 E. Joe Ramsey Blvd, Greenville, TX. (It is at the southeast corner of HYW 69 and I-30 East in Greenville). If anyone is lost call Ron’s cell phone at 972-824-0464. 


We will leave at 8:15 AM for Winnsboro. It is a 55-mile drive from Greenville and we form up for the parade in Winnsboro at 10 AM. It is important if we want to stay together to be there on time.  We must leave at 8:15 AM!


After the parade, we will park our cars in our designated area near the Chamber of Commerce Bldg.  We will pass out tour maps for those who want to have some fun on the three back road tours/drives that they have outlined for the autumn trails.  After the lunch, tours and the car show, you will be free to return home on your own schedule.


The cost for the event/drive will be $10 per car, payable at check-in or PayPal, which will include a raffle and maps for the leaf tours. 


Don’t worry about not having an antique or classic car or convertibles just come; they welcome the MB Club participation.  For those with convertibles or antique restorations, it will be a fun place to show your car and you can practice your special hand wave for the crowd.  Put your section magnetic sign on your cars for the event if you have them.  I will have them for sale at check-in if you would like to purchase a set. 


Call Ron Seifert at 972-824-0464 or email at [email protected]by October 20th if you are attending or sign up on PayPal.  We are looking for a great turnout and this time of year should give us great driving weather and a nice day for a fall drive.
