What was it like in 2018?

Last year Horsham AmeriCARna hosted around 350 vehicles and drew footfall of 46,000 in the town alone. Our online video series reached over 200,000 on facebook,  we had over 20 pages of printed media coverage and hosted a live local BBC radio broadcast. Visitor satisfaction was 99%, average dwell time was over 3 hours and many food vendors sold out.
