About 40,000 people are expected to descend on Greenwood Avenue on Saturday for the annual Greenwood Car Show, which will bring more than 700 classic cars, vintage hydroplanes, antique fire trucks and police cars and more rumbling through the neighborhood. Traffic and parking will, obviously, be nutty, so be patient and enjoy the gorgeous vehicles and fun people watching. As part of the Car Show, the Greenwood Senior Center is having a fundraising pancake breakfast, Winderemere Realty is hosting a beer garden for charity, Naked City Brewer is hosting its annual Beer Can Derby (and Root Beer Can Derby for the kids), and FamilyWorks is collection donations of non-perishable food and cash for the Greenwood Food Bank.
