Apparently, our dear Greenwood Ave is known for its annual Car Show.
And boy, a car show it is. For about 30 blocks, you can see cars of ever color, model, and condition. Same goes for people. 😉 When my dad suggested making our way on down, I didn’t give it much thought to its sheer vastness besides a fleeting reference to what I know of street fairs, which occupy a handful of blocks. Not the case here.
Needless to say, I was shocked by the crowd when we stepped onto Greenwood Ave and took it all in. I had no idea.
All of these people and over 700 cars were spending their Saturday just blocks away from me and I would not have been the wiser? Crazy. Once lost in the flow of folks, I couldn’t help but be caught up in the festiveness of this community event and appreciate the harmless fun so many people were having on their Saturday. We even enjoyed a delicious hamburger prepared by a salon owner who was just accepting donations. And donate, we did. Now, I’m not a car person, but I know a cool car when I see one, like this:
AND classic cars all in a row is kind of impressive:
This was a unexpected adventure today, friends, and not what I was going to post about (the intrigue is killing you, I know), but a bright spot in my day. Especially because there were dogs of every shape and size and I wanted them all. Any dog-filled day is a good day.
I’ll leave you with this: so much right/wrong going on here (click on it to enlarge and notice the “license plate”)…
