This past weekend I joined the CCC Crew at the Back to the 50's weekend yet again. If you love classic cars, this is definitely one of the best shows in the country. The event attracts 11k+ cars and over 100K people to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds over the 3-day weekend.
There were so many cars to see and sights to check out that I am breaking up the photos and notes from the weekend into a few blog posts this week. The California Car Cover booth was busy all weekend, but I was able to sneak out for a few minutes here and there to take some photos of the cool cars and unique sights of Back to the 50's.
Below are the photo highlights from Friday at the show. Cars started pulling into the fairgrounds at 6am to get a good parking spot. The streets were already packed when vendors were allowed to pull in and starting selling up.
The weather was perfect the entire weekend, except for just a few minutes of rain. This meant that there were a lot of convertible tops down all weekend. The show is open to 1964 and earlier classic cars, so it is impressive to see that many cars at an event without any Camaros or Mustangs cruising the fairgrounds. There is always a nice variety of classics at the show, many of which you do not usually see at shows in Southern California.
California Car Cover attends during the year. You can see why in the photos. There are paved streets and plenty of trees to make hanging out at the show enjoyable for the entire day. The event also attracts a few hundred vendors and has plenty of food and beverage options for show goers.
