Lawrenceville Labor Day Festival in the Park/Car show!
A few scenes from Lawrenceville’s big early-September fest, held at the city park. It was a delicious day in many ways: perfect weather, lots of vendors serving all sorts of fest foods (including deep-fried Oreos…o my goodness…), Bluegrass music provided by Flat Mountain Band (who played everything except “Man of Constant Sorrow”…but we were waiting to see if they would!), and an awesome car and tractor show. The car show was courtesy of the White Squirrel Cruisers Car Club of Olney, and as usual, they did a remarkable job!
Above, Boo the Great Dane, owned by Jake and Jayde Seitzinger, accompanied his family who were listening to the amazing Bluegrass music.
The Flat Mountain Band had this little guy clogging right in front of the stage. The sound system was great; music could be heard throughout the park.
Above is a bright display of tie dye work; the vendor had a whole tent devoted to it, and it was a popular location.
For the car show, we found such beauties as the above 1950 Oldsmobile, owned by Charlotte Weger and shown in memory of Jerry Weger.
Above, a 1947 Ford street rod, owned by James Smith, West Salem.
Above, Rick and Tara Opell’s 1970 Mustang in electric blue; they’re from Fairfield.
The above hot number is a 1971 Dodge Challenger done up in stunning pink and with the appropriate character behind the wheel; the car is owned by Puff Rogers of Princeton, Ind.
There were plenty of people admiring Puff’s pink panther ride…
Overall, there was quite a turnout for the car show.
You couldn’t MISS this car…classic 1930 Ford Model A, owned by Wendy Rousey, Bridgeport.
Ang was completely enamored with this above car and had me take SEVERAL shots of it…more will be in the print version, but we wanted to show you this amazing paint job.
Above, the yellow/orange lineup…we didn’t catch who owned the one on the far right, but the one in the middle is a 2000 Chevy Corvett owned by Don and Tonya Pauley of Sumner; and at left is the General Lee (we’ve shown that one before; it’s a car show favorite!)
Another view of the yellow/orange grouping, showing a few more cars…
There were all kinds of tractors at the other end of the park in the tractor show; we’ll have more of those, and more of the fest, in the print version, on stands next Monday, 09.13.10!
