Auto Fest 2023


           What a weekend it has been! Been to two events over the span of 2 days on the weekend. First Fridays Kars on King which I covered and blogged about Saturday morning and yesterday's Auto Fest down at the lake yesterday. I couldn't honestly believe how many cars there was at the event. It would take us hours to go through every car there and nothing wrong with that really. We had no plan when it came to looking at the cars. We didn't look at every single but spent an hour and a half down there, was truly a lot of fun.

            We grabbed a hot dog/sausage and drink was great little treat for us both and cannot go wrong with one from a little BBQ stand there. Music was great and had the funniest oldie they played called "Beep, Beep!" I know it sounds funny for a name but they were known for the silly songs back in the 50's and 60's which is great. I could even do a blog about my favourite silly oldies songs. I really enjoyed this event and fortunate to have gone again 2 years in a row and as long COVID doesn't end up us with restrictions I will continue to go to the events no matter what. Anyways that will do it for today's post as always I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Kars on King & Auto Fest 2022!

              As you guys know, I was at Kars on King and Auto Fest back on the weekend so this is a two part in one post for you guys. So first let's talk about Kars on King:

              This is the first time for Kars on King and also Auto Fest. Kars on King was in the downtown of my hometown here and it was a lot of fun! A lot of cars there, some honourable mentions the Austin Mini aka Mr. Bean car. Also there was great music that was being played in the middle of the entire setup which was awesome. Was a nice way to spend the entire evening in the downtown with my parents as I went with both of them Friday evening. Our local station was there too and playing good tunes as well. We have a great time but was tired at the end of it.

            Now the next day, Saturday, my dad and I went down to the lake for Auto Fest which a lot of the cars were there from the previous night. Anyways it was a busy venue a lot of people there and always nice to see a ton of people. There was a ton of cars there this year and it seemed very endless. I saw a Studebaker car, saw a nice Thunderbird, Trans Am, Mr. Bean car was there from the previous night (lol), bunch of Beetles and much more. The one thing we did not see was an Edsel which I saw I think it was Thursday or Friday afternoon when I was out on my own on the bus, so I was a little disappointed by  that but it is what it is. We had fun and to end the few hours we had together, we had some Poutine together which consists fries, cheese, cheese curds and gravy which is great and yes it is a Canadian thing actually. Anyways that is the post for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this and I will talk to you guys tomorrow!

Auto Fest 2018

               I got a chance to actually see cars down at the Lake for $12 which is a fair admission price and I wasn't feeling like going to the event as I have been struggling the last couple of days since Kars on King as I have not felt well, tired, no energy whatsoever. Still have very little energy since Friday. Still trying to recover but I'll be fine in time, I think I am doing better this morning then I have been since a few days ago. So we went late in the morning and spent a good 3 hours at the Auto Fest with my dad. There was so much to see and do there including some amazing cars like Bel Airs, Corvettes, Camaro's, Mustangs and the list goes on and on. There was a few cars I was over the moon thrilled to see, the Mr Bean Car (Austin Mini), also a Cadillac Car & finally the Edsel car were some of my favorites cars to see but trust me, I have a ton of my favorite types of cars. There was a bunch of El Caminos as well which are half cars and half truck if that makes any sense to you guys at all. 

               There was not just cars but also vendors were there and within all the booths there they had exotic animals there, like Tortoises which one got free from the pen and wondering around the path way which was quite funny to see and it wouldn't go far as Tortoises are slow moving, so it wouldn't get too far. Also they had a Anaconda snake, ferret, Boa Constrictor & also an Python which was massive in size just like the Anaconda that we saw as well too. The cars went on and on and on, there were so many different cars to see and I highly recommend it as you will be spending a couple of hours down there but totally worth the time and money's worth to go and see!
