Leesburg Classic Car Show
The Leesburg Classic Car show kicks off the summer. During the afternoon of May 11 this year (Mother’s Day), an entire street in downtown Leesburg will be shut down to show off beautiful classic cars. Sponsored by local Monroe Advanced Technical Academy, the Leesburg Classic Car Show is a great opportunity to view some classic cars while supporting local students.
If you can’t make Mother’s Day, but you still love classic cars, never fear! Downtown Leesburg will host its Classic Car Cruise-In on Saturday, May 25, from 5pm to 9pm.
Memorial Day Summer Kickoff At Mission Inn (BYOB!)
On Monday, May 27, kick off summer with a Memorial Day Summer Sizzle special at Mission Inn. The official start of summer means it’s time to get out and explore the Harris chain of lakes in your boat. Boats are available for rent at Mission Inn, but if you stay at the hotel… BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat)! Bring your own boat and launch it for free on our dock. Featuring a 55-slip marina, complimentary trailer parking, a dozen boat ramps, and easy access to the Harris Chain of Lakes, Mission Inn & Club is the ideal place to plan your Memorial Day weekend.
