Hot August Nights!

Our annual car show is in town! I don't usually go because the traffic is crazy for the entire week that it happens but an impromptu opportunity arose and I want to share pics!

They "cruise" every night down the main street in the two downtown areas here, but there are places all over town where all the cars are parked and you can just walk around and look at them... huge parking lots. We had 6000 classic cars this year!

Yay! They closed out the parade with fireworks, I don't know if they do the fireworks everynight... maybe just cause it was friday, who knows. The show ends Sunday.

I took this on the way out of the parking garage, this whole level was just classic cars but my husband wouldn't let me take photos at leisure. We had to beat the crazies out of the garage. Lol.

 I hear that rumor all the time, not necessarily in CA but that we aren't doing it anymore. I don't know if there's any truth to it but I've never seen it happen.

Quoting MrsDuNn06:

 Sorry, I forgot I wrote this post until this morning.
