SELBYVILLE – The milestone 60th Old Timer’s Day was held Saturday in Selbyville.

Among Selbyville’s Old Timer’s Day Classic Car & Truck Show entries: this patriotic 1950 Willys Jeep.

Presented by the town of Selbyville and the Bethany/Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, the six-hour event featured numerous classic vehicles in the car and truck show that spanned much of Church Street.

Popular Delmarva band Glass Onion, in an encore performance from 2016, provided music entertainment and Selbyville Volunteer Fire Company Station 88 offered free fire truck rides.

Clifton Murray, Selbyville’s mayor, gauged the Old Timer’s Day turnout as good, with larger crowds during the late morning and early afternoon, he said.

Car show registration, Mayor Murray said, appeared to be down somewhat from recent years. He attributed that in part to competition with other events in the region, including the Ocean City Air Show and the Firefly music festival in Dover.
