This is the only event that I trailer the car to (open trailer). We have driven the car longer distances, but because of all the items we pack, pop up shade tent, coolers, large and small, snacks, car related items, beer, chairs, my clothes, and last but not least, "MY WIFE'S CLOTHES" etc., hence the trailer.
I went last year for my first time and very much enjoyed all the cars there. I was a little disappointed that there were not many venders there but I am assuming because of the weather it prevented some cars and venders from showing. I plan on being there this year.
