On June 22, the Cobras will roar into London in the Ohio Cobra Club’s annual parade of Cobras.
The cars will take off at 9 a.m. from the Speedway gas station on U.S. Route 42 near I-70 and arrive in downtown London shortly after 9:15 a.m., driving in on North Main Street to join the festivities at the London Strawberry Festival.
Once in town, the Cobras will be parked until 3 p.m. on Main Street between Fourth and Fifth streets and along Fourth Street between Oak and Union streets. The public is invited to view the Cobras and visit the many automotive related vendors that will have products on display.
For a $10 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, anyone can take a Cobra ride down Main Street at speeds faster than the speed limit, all with the approval of the London Police Department.
Each year, the Ohio Cobra Club, a non-profit organization, sponsors the London Cobra Show along with a Cobra sports car raffle as a means of raising money for research into developing medicines to fight Cystic Fibrosis. Raffle tickets for the car can be purchased at the Ohio Cobra Club’s booth on June 22.
Last year, the Ohio Cobra Club donated $104,500 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Since 2000, the club has donated a total of $1,333,000 to the organization.
The club also makes donations each year to various London and Madison County agencies in appreciation of the community’s support. Last year, the club gave $5,000 each to the London fire department, London police department, and Madison County Emergency Medical District, as well as $2,500 each to the Madison County Deputy Sheriffs Association and Madison County DARE program.
