Yup, it’s unofficially the last weekend of the summer, and there are a lot of festivals going on all around Nippertown – moe.down, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, the Capital District Scottish Games.

But if your summer budget has been depleted and you’re looking for a FREE festival, well, just head over to Powers Park in Troy on Saturday.

It’s the sixth annual Uncle Sam Jam/Power in the Park Classic Car Show, and there’s nothing like wrapping up the summer with a day of free music and muscle cars. More than 75 classic cars will be on exhibit, and as for the music, well, you can’t go wrong with a line-up that features Stuck On Stupid; the reunion of classic rockers Emerald City; and Blue Machine, led by powerhouse vocalist Tommy Love.

The bash runs from 12noon til 8pm, and the music is slated to get underway at 2pm.
