Pictures from the 2014 Frog Follies. This was the 40th anniversary of the antique car show event, which is the biggest and best pre-49 car show in the United States.
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.
The immensely popular event, Frog Follies, which features antique cars and hot rods is coming back to on Evansville on August 22, 23, and 24th. This event takes up the entirety of the Vanderburgh County 4H Fair Grounds, showing off cars, fun events, and trade. It’s an event that I try to take in every year and one that my daughter has even started looking forward to.

Frog Follies will be celebrating it's 40th Anniversary in 2014, so expect many special events. Like previous years, the Frog Follies are appropriate for the entire family! So, weather permitting, bring the kids young and old.
Below are some pictures I took from the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Frog Follies.
There is still time to get out and enjoy the Vanderburgh County Fair and hopefully weather will be cooperative as the week ends. The Fair is scheduled to go on through Saturday, July 25th and not close it's doors until after the contemporary Christian Performance by Greg Graham at 7:30pm.
Also going on this Saturday at the 4H grounds will be the demolition derby, which is a personal favorite of mine. As far as fair events go it's a staple and if anyone has the opportunity to compete or work the pits, do it. It's addictive and every race provides it's own new challenges and countless memories.
