Carfree Day this Monday

On Monday September 22, people from around the world get together to celebrate a day without cars. With gas prices at an all time high, Carfree Day is the perfect time to leave your car at home and get around your neighborhood and the region by foot, bike, bus, and train or by sharing the ride.

I did not find any events listed for San Jose nor did I find any information on the VTA site saying what a great day to take public transit. Carfree Day is not mentioned on the San Jose Green Vision site. People asleep at the wheel. You and I knew about World Carfree Day, right?

8th Annual Antique Autos at History San José

This Sunday noon to 5:00 pm is The 8th Annual Antique Autos in History Park. There will be vintage autos (1900 to 1945), bicycles, motorcycles, fire equipment, early day gas engines which will power saws, washing machines and other tools needed in the early days, and more lining the streets.

There will also be children’s activities provided by Schmahl Science Workshop, vintage clothing and handcraft demonstrations. Movies which include early day automobiles will be shown in the hotel. Of course, there are the historic buildings to visit and the trolley to ride.

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Ford Model T and there will be a short presentation to commemorate the event followed by the assembly of the Model T in less than 6 minutes.
