Saturday, Sept. 30 was a “Double Feature” day for car show enthusiasts in Northern Berks County.

Salem-Berne UMC and Appalachian RV Resort once again teamed up to share the date and coordinate their activities so interested parties could attend and participate in both events.

The nightcap event was the 7th Annual Car Show, Bike Show and Cruise at Appalachian RV Resort in Shartlesville.
