This was the 17th annual Nelson Road Kings car show. It is a two day event on the second weekend in September every year. It kicks off with a parade on the Friday night, and the main event of the show is on Saturday afternoon. The cars that line downtown are pretty spectacular. There are bands playing, lots of prizes, and of course, the air is filled with the smell of food being sold. The patios of local restaurants are packed as well, and the weekend is closed off with a big dance on Saturday night.
The car show is a widely attended event that draws out tons of people from all different ages, and walks of life. It has become one of Nelson's highly anticipated premiere events every year. It sure is gonna be great when we can do things like this again. I miss the good ol' days.
