I knew someone would make a smartass comment..LOL


MAP

I don't know the address. But there is a mobil gas station on the NW corner as you travel North on 31. Take a left @ McCullom Lake Rd. and pass the gas station. Right behind that (or 1st right turn ) is the old Walmart. Any questions, call me 1-815-701-1008.

The green arrow is the old Walmart lot. To the left on the map is Peterson Park ( I circled it)where the Fiesta Days grounds are.

Thank you Jeff for taking the lead on getting everyone together for the show. Smile

Was worried about you guys all day, I knew it was going to be bad but I would have traded anything to be there with ya'll despite the heat.


Thanks for the pics on Facebook Ray, they made me feel better. Very Happy

Thanks to all who came out....new members and old, to brave the heat . It was a scorcher. I need to cool down some more before I post up pics and the videos we took.
Glad to see you made it home safe Ray- we were concerned about you overheating. And Tom did your stomach settle down yet after the carnival rides?

Its a fun day, we have been the last 4 years so its kinda a tradition for us to go. We get parked together, throw up a canopy or two and chill by the cars. They give everyone a thingy to get into the fair part where the food and drinks are for free so we wander over there get our hands stamped and then eat food. Then walk back look at other cars, hang out under the tents some more. Then judging then home to nap.

Food and drinks arent free!!! They give you a ticket to get in the food/carnival area, your entrance to that area is free.

This year it was 15$ to enter car show.
And no free entry to food court...

How come you ask....

The McHenry Chamber is responsible for the Fiesta Days programs.
They have a car group who does the car show. This group decided that
food court entry was unnecessary as Lions and another food vendor
were to be in the car show area. Lions was there and had a long line.
The other vendor did not have proper country health permits and as
such had to leave. As the car group was doing the car show the Chamber
people were totally UNaware of what was transpiring. The McHenry
Chamber of Commerce was busy fielding calls all morning long with much
chagrin of how car show was handled.
As it was explained to me the Chamber pays for the trophy's and most
of the advertising for the show. The group collects the money which is a fund
raiser for them and they gives a small contribution to the Chamber.
The Fiesta Days Committee and the McHenry Chamber are not happy with
how the show was done and have pretty much promised that it will not be
done the same again.
Food vendors pay a lot to be able to set up there plus have to deal with
getting county permits all on their own. The car show participants pay to
show off their cars. The Chamber pays to advertise the event and for trophy's..
So who is making out here...
