Updates on the Car Shows visited this last weekend


This last weekend, September 29th and 30th, 2012, I got the chance to visit three car shows. Two were on Saturday. The third was on Sunday. They were all first time visits for us. The weather was great this weekend, and a nice time was had all around …

Most of the car shows and festivals, I visit are fairly local, to where we live, in Montgomery County, in Indiana. There was not much going on near here, so a trip further afield was planned. On Saturday, we went to Indianapolis, well on the west side, near the airport, anyways.


The first car show visited was the 6th Annual Indy on Wheels car show, at the Westlake Church of God, on Rockville Road, on Indianapolis’ west side. The pictures that I took there are up on Flickr.

Go check them out, this was quite a large show, with a friendly atmosphere. I am looking forward to visiting again next year …

The second show, was on the way home. I had seen it listed, but did not realize it was so near, just a few miles west, of the first show, on US 36, near Avon.

I stopped, of course, when I saw it …

The show was held at a Senior Community, Hearth at Prestwick,  just off of US 36, near Avon.

The pictures that I took at this car show, on Saturday, are up on Flickr. Go check them out, this was a smaller show, but with a friendly atmosphere. I am looking forward to next year.

On the way home from Avon, we stopped by some covered bridges, in Putnam county, Indiana, to get some pictures for another WordPress site I have  http://incoveredbridges.wordpress.com/

This is a quest to visit, cross and photograph, the over ninety covered bridge, still left in Indiana.

Check it out?


On Sunday, we visited the annual Festival of the Turning Leaves, in Thorntown.

This was on a couple of side streets, adjacent to the main festival site, on Main Street.

Maybe next year, I can get there earlier, in time to look around the main festival, as well as the car show.

Highlights include, apart from the festival itself, a car and motorcycle show on Saturday morning on North Perry Street and a parade, starting at the High School, that proceeds west along Sycamore Street, then north on South Perry Street to downtown, starting at 2PM.

I am hoping to attend the car show and the parade again this year.
