Get ready for Summer with the Steet Ponte Auto Group! We’re excited to sponsor and attend our annual Summer events and support our local organizations! First up is the Annual New Hartford Memorial Day Parade sponsored by the New Hartford Fire Department. Each of our stores drives a vehicle in the parade throughout the Village of New Hartford. The end of the Parade is at the New Hartford Fire Department, where there are refreshments, cookies, tours of the Fire House and a memorial service to honor those who have served. 


Following the Parade in our event lineup is the New Hartford Fire Department’s Annual Fire Truck Spectacular! This is a FREE event held to the public that draws thousands of people every year. It’s great for all ages, but kids especially love to see the hundreds of Fire Trucks, rescue vehicles, ambulances, and even the helicopter that takes off and lands at the end. The event is held in the New Hartford Shopping Center’s Parking Lot, right in front of Nicky Doodles, which is great for ice cream after the show! 



As we head further into Summer, we hold our Annual Steet Ponte Auto Group Golf Tournament! This is open to anyone, customers, friends, family, business associates and more! We rotate the tournament to a different local golf course every year to give everyone our business. This year, the Golf Tournament will be held at Valley View Golf Course in Utica, NY off of the Memorial Parkway. Everyone has a chance to win prizes, there’s a free hot dog and hamburger lunch, and a full Italian buffet at the end with drinks galore! 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, and raffles for everyone. We have a great time every year and have lucked out with the weather each year! 



Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute holds their annual Sidewalk Art Show and Classic & Antique Car Show Invitational held at MWPAI’s front lawn! We love sponsoring this event as it’s another FREE event that anyone of all ages, families and kids can enjoy! It’s amazing to see all of the beautiful classic and antique cars, all different makes and models, including a vehicle on display from the Steet Ponte Auto Group! 

A NEW event we’ll be attending this year is a Utica Blue Sox Game! We’re proud to sponsor Utica’s Collegiate Baseball team, as we are a big sports family oriented Auto Group, and are so excited to have a Steet Ponte Auto Group night at a baseball game at Murnane Field in Utica, NY! The Utica Blue Sox is one of 10 ball clubs in the Upstate New York region that play in a wooden bat summer league known as the “Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League” (PGCBL). The team is mostly comprised of D1 college and university players from around the country!

The PGCBL league is affiliated with Perfect Game USA, the largest independent scouting service in the country used by MLB. Last year (2013) more than 1,300 professional players and 85% of all MLB draftees had either worn the uniform of a PGCBL team or participated in a Perfect Game USA event.



And finally, to end our Summer on a high note, we’re holding our Annual Steet Ponte Auto Group Company Picnic at Enchanted Forest Water Safari! This is held for our employees and their families, to have a relaxing day in Old Forge, NY and enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Mountains! We host this every year, and include a full lunch, refreshments and ice cream throughout the day, and a full day at the Water Park. It’s a great way for all of our stores to get together and enjoy time outside of work to kick back and enjoy a fun summer day in the sun!
