In 1986 it started “The Mom and Apple Pie Car Show.” These first shows were small and drew less than 100 cars. In 1988 ARK held a “by invitation” show called the Adirondack Nationals at the Sheraton Inn of Glens Falls, NY. There were 268 cars. The following year, the show was moved to its present location on the grounds of the Fort William Henry Resort in Lake George, N.Y. The event just keeps getting bigger and better.
