Folks look over a Pierce-Arrow at the National Windmill Museum outside of Kendallville on Wednesday. A large contingent of the cars will be on the Public Square in downtown Angola today for a video filming and event in The Brokaw Movie House.

ANGOLA — The Pierce-Arrow Society, in Angola for it’s national meet, will have a change in its schedule for today.

The Pierce-Arrows were to take over all four of the parking quadrants in downtown Angola today, but that has changed due to the ongoing trial in the Steuben County Courthouse.

Tylarr James Tabliaferri, 24, Angola, is on trial for seven felony charges alleging child molesting. The trial began with the seating of a jury on Tuesday afternoon and got underway in full on Wednesday once jury selection was complete.

As is customary during trials, special parking passes are given to jurors to display in their vehicles, enabling them undisturbed parking access on the Public Square, typically in the southeast quadrant. Otherwise, parking is limited to two hours.

Parking to all four quads was to be restricted to the Pierce-Arrow vehicles today until their departure to Auburn at about 10:30 a.m. Steuben Superior Court Judge Bill Fee, working with Angola Police, made sure the southeast quadrant would be available to jurors only.

While in the downtown, a video is supposed to be taped and there’s special programming at The Brokaw Movie House.

There will be a showing of the Pierce-Arrows on Saturday at Potawatomi Inn, Pokagon State Park, from where the national meet is being staged. The show will take place on the lawn in front of the Inn.
