2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance moved to Saturday due to rain threat

Lightning may not strike in the same place twice, but they never said anything about rain…especially on the Florida coast in March. So, with rain on the horizon for this Sunday, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance staff has elected to move the show up a day. It will now take place on Saturday, March 10.

It will make Saturday especially busy, however; you’ll have a big cars and coffee to hit in addition to the concours.

As of writing, Sunday’s rain should clear up by the late afternoon, so if you’re in town through the weekend, you might be able to kick back and relax in the sunshine.
