AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - More than 700 vehicles will be auctioned off at the RM Auctions Auburn Auction Park this weekend.
The cars are shipped from across the country to be part of the Labor Day tradition.
"It's more of a historic, good memories for older generations and younger generations, to be in the auction park and to watch their cars sell," said Thatcher Keast, RM Auctions Car Specialist.
To pull off the event, it takes months of planning.
"When last year's auction ended, we actually started planning for this year," said Keast. "I'm constantly looking and reorganizing and making sure the running order is the best that it can be."
Hotels also roll out the red carpet for guests, this weekend many will offer special ammenities.
However, restaurants will be packed after two popular restaurants closed.
"Breakfast is going to be rough. They are going to have to figure out alternative solutions, probably moving the Auburn House of Pancakes," said Christian Bowsher.
"People liked to go to the Auburn House because it was cheap, it was good. They are normally really busy this time of year," said Kayla Jalsso.
