A 1968 Shelby convertible, a 1931 Bugatti Royale and a number of classic Corvettes paraded through the Hershey Harrisburg Region July 30–Aug. 2 and resulted in an estimated economic impact of $10.5 million.

Specifically, the items were part of the Mecum Auctions, which happen across the United States at different points of the year and sell collector cars, motorcycles, tractors and collectibles. This auction took place at the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center and saw $20.5 million in sales—an overall sell-through rate of 67 percent.

Overall a total of 1,016 vehicles, 135 motorcycles, 107 tractors and 405 Road Art items were offered for sale during 20-hours of auction coverage broadcast on NBC Sports Network. It’s estimated that an audience of 20,000 registered bidders and spectators attended the event. This year’s results rival Mecum’s record-breaking first-time event for northeast in Harrisburg in 2014.

“It was great to see that the crowds at this year’s Harrisburg auction easily rivaled that of our inaugural event in 2014,” says Dana Mecum, founder and president, Mecum Auctions. “With so many registered bidders present, bidding remained steadily competitive and kept sales strong.”

Gone without regional and national recognition, over the years the City of Roseville has been overlooked and even mistaken for being somewhere in St. Paul. In 2016, the Visit Roseville partnered with DestinationNext to strategically plan and determine priorities for Visit Roseville to pursue in the future to receive more recognition. After taking a self-assessment using an online diagnostic toolkit, Visit Roseville was able to establish a course of action.
