This show was 2 miles from home so went to check it out.Its been going 20 years but never noticed it before.As we approached show i noticed classic cars pulling up so it wasnt just a vintage rally.i asked the organizers at the gate if i could bring my covin along. ten minutes later and i was back with it lol.Only 1.50 entrance and everything else wasnt costley either.Food van reasonable.Plenty for kids with punch and judy,magic shows , free face painting and bouncy castle .The people were very freindly and the weather held out.Had a great day with toni,john and stepgrandson..jac.

Great pics :smt012
That looks like a nice little event Danny, we've got a few like that up here as well. Some are only very small but others are great 1 day events with good turnouts. You really do have to give them all a try to see which ones are worth doing for the following year :smt012
