Looking forward to the car show. Will be nice to take our grand daughter and daughter-in-law to all the fun. Sounds like a very special evening with the good music and all.
I liked it better when there were more...but I'll take two!
THANK YOU to the organizers and exhibitors.
Went to a similar show recently in Iowa, and thoroughly enjoyed it. One big difference: they still allow you to walk around with beer or wine (they had to be in plastic bottles or cups) while looking at the cars. My wife and I remember when the same was allowed at our show, and it's too bad the policy was changed. But here's the twist: we still partially blame the police for this change, and their strategy (or lack there-if) of patrolling the event. We remember walking the entire show, how crowded it was, but in particular how all the police were in "groups" (seemed like 7-8 in each group) in only two places - laughing and talking and having a "good time" themselves. At the very end of the street, we saw one of the fights, with no police anywhere to be seen! If they had stationed two cops "teams"...and have them in explicit spots to stay, we're sure the fights would NOT have occurred. Not only my wife and I, but our neighbors all agree (we luve within walking distance to downtown) that with better planning on THEIR part, we would still be able to enjoy the event like the days in the past. (...the bottom line is that a few bad apples had to ruin what was once an very enjoyable show)
So glad I just moved...no more drunken drivers down Camino T or drunken fools on the sidewalks to put up with. Drinking and car shows are sooo yesterday and tacky to boot.
