LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The 50th anniversary celebration of the General Motors Lordstown plant will continue with an open house and a car show next weekend.

The open house at the plant will be on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“We encourage all the public to come out to not only celebrate 50 years in the auto industry, but to come and see how the all-new Chevy Cruze is being built here in Lordstown,” said Tim O’Hara, Vice President of UAW Local 1112.

Workers will be making cars on the day of the open house.

Any children attending must be at least 10 years old and if they are under 18, they have to be accompanied by an adult. You are also not permitted to wear open-toe or high heel shoes in the plant.

On Saturday, the all-American car show at the plant will be open to the general public at 10 a.m.

“So far we have about 320 classic cars already entered,” O’Hara said.

Around 50 Lordstown-built heritage vehicles will be on display also, from the 1966 Impala up to the new Cruze.
