Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber will host 2016 Spring Business Festival

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce will host its 2016 Spring Business Festival from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 18, at the Alpine Regional Center, 1620 Alpine Blvd., Alpine. Admission is free. The public is invited to attend. The business expo event will feature display tables, food sampling and networking. Vendor setup begins at 4 p.m. Chamber officials said the event is an opportunity to provide marketing opportunities for Chamber members. A drawing will be held to win a ride on a REACH Air Medical Services helicopter. For more information and to RSVP, call (619) 445-2722 or visit
