Was miserably hot today, August 23rd, 2014 at the Vanderburgh County 4H Fair Grounds for the 40th Anniversary of the Frog Follies. This event is the biggest and best pre 1949 automotive show in the United States and it’s easy to see why. There was hardly any space not covered by antique cars and all the buildings were full of vendors. Even the fields were covered by swap events and vendors slinging any product remotely related to automotive.
The Frog Follies have become an annual event for father daughter time in the Davidson house hold. My 6 year old was just as excited to see all of the cars as I was, even tolerating my endless scanning of booths for a good deal.
Evansville does an amazing job at hosting this event and accommodating all the extra people inside the city. During my time, there were hardly any traffic jams, as 41 and Booneville-New Harmony road were clear and lines of cars were in constant motion. Furthermore, inside the fair grounds there were plenty of helpers parking cars, directing traffic, and watching out for walkers to and from the event.
As usual, I plan on attending again next year. Although, I’d like to order a little bit cooler weather please.
