    I went 3 years ago; it was a good excuse to spend a morning/early afternoon in Boston, I wasn't at the show the whole time, also walked around Beacon Hill, etc.

    The cars were in a cordoned off area by the Parkman Bandstand in the Boston Common, so spectators outside the area could see them, but as it was something like $50 to enter the actual concours field, I stayed outside. You could still get pretty close and see things from outside the ropes, but couldn't walk around and examine the cars closely without paying $50, it wasn't worth it to me so I didn't. Chatted with a few owners of cars from outside the ropes too. There were a few Ferraris, including a Daytona and 2-cam 275 GTB, otherwise a 550, 3.2 Mondial cab, 360 and 458 Spider, think that was it. I didn't take too many pics of other cars, but there was a little something for everybody, pre-war stuff, V-16 Cadillacs, a sweet Cisitalia sticks out. Some cool vendor stands outside the show area as well, one was a Bronco resto-mod outfit that had some neat Broncos on display (not cheap), and I saw my first and only (so far) Porsche 918 there as well.

    A fun morning on a nice day in Boston, but I haven't been back since, don't know if I'll go this year. Wanted to go to Greenwich this year, but it got cancelled.

    Misselwood last year was a nice show as well, I liked it better than the Boston Cup 2017, but obviously it depends on what the featured marques are, and who brings what.

    Recently got the email that the Lime Rock Concours in the Park is apparently a go for Labor Day Sunday, it's a much farther drive for me but if the weather's nice the turnout is pretty great, that's the main show I look forward to every year.

    Sorry to sidetrack but there seem to be a few of us in the weston area - do you think there’s enough to setup something once every couple weeks or once a month to meet up?

    First time I am hearing about it. Looks good. Anyone knows if Tutto Italiano will take place this year?

    According to Larz's website, there are no lawn events scheduled at this time. They indicate that it could change based on guidance from the state.

    They have moved the Boston Cup to Encore in Everett for this year. They will only be able to allow 50 spectators at a time.

    That Vette's been sitting there for a while. Looking for its third owner, apparently ;)

    Any more pics?

    Covid has certainly taken a toll on car events...yesterday was Tutto Italiano at Lars, would've been a great turnout in an ordinary year, and I wouldn't have missed it. This year, with a morning and afternoon display of 50 cars each, no passengers/visitors and at $40 admission, it was like a c&c you had to pay to get into. Not worth the drive from NH. That said, I hope it went well for those who attended.

    Kyle took my Fiat Spider 124 / 2000 and he summed it up exactly as you did above.
    At least the entry fee went to a good cause.

    My friend Andy was at the Encore yesterday with his 1993 Cobra R factory race car.

    Do you happen to have a pic of it ?

    Oh, I forgot to add that NECN was there filming and doing interviews. I was told a half hour show will air sometime in October.
