I was a little disappointed that the name is being changed on the 40th anniversary of our Turkey Festival.
I arrived shortly after 7 PM for the car show, held in Strathroy Downtown core. Although there were 250 cars registered, angle parking fit it into a much smaller area than previous years. The block on Front Street west of Hwy 81 wasn’t used at all.
The number of motorcycles present were much less than I’ve ever seen. This was disappointing because we have a new Motorcycle shop in town.
As usual there was no entry fee to the mid-way. It was busy and filled with lots of foot traffic. One of the most popular areas was the free swings that are there year round.
There was a $10 cover charge after 8PM for the beer garden/local bands, so I didn’t enter to get photos of the bands, especially when the free band was still playing downtown.
