SHARON— The spirit of the 1920s and 1930s is brought to life every year on the first Sunday in June for Model A Day, hosted by the small town of Sharon, located just west of Wisconsin Highway 67 and County Highway C on the state line.

The Model A Ford was produced from 1928 through 1931. It proved to be a tough, reliable car that endured for years — a fact proven by the number of vehicles that gathered last Sunday.

More than 200 of the Model A automobiles lined Main Street, many of them driven into town by members of the Rock-Ford A's Model A club.

Car owners, enthusiasts and visitors dressed as gangsters and flappers from the 1920s and '30s. Set against the well-preserved facades of Sharon's downtown businesses, visitors were transported back in time.

Activities included arts and crafts, food vendors, an ice cream social and a pig roast. Bluegrass and Dixieland bands provided live music.

Historic Downtown Sharon sponsored the event, bringing history to life.
