I love this shot, it looks like it’s really old, but it’s not. It was shot in downtown Grayslake and at the end of summer during the Cruisin’ for the Kids Car Show.
I have an auto loving husband and a car obsessed son. I, too, love cars, particularly old ones that make for fun photographs:
If you have a car lover or are just looking for a fun way to spend the afternoon, then you don’t want to miss this event! The show is held on Center Street in downtown Grayslake on Sunday, August 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In addition to having cars of all sorts of makes and models, live music abounds with food available for purchase.
We really like this event because it’s just big enough to satisfy the guys and not too loud or overwhelming to bore or upset the little sister (who is only interested in purple cars). The added bonus is that The Freeze is a short walk from the show!
It’s a great “first timer” show if you want to test the waters with younger kids because of its smaller size. Since it’s held on Center street, it is stroller and wagon friendly, but can be very hot as there is no shade! It also can be loud when the bands are playing if you have a child sensitive to loud sounds. Last year we went towards the end of the show and enjoyed the time between bands.
