    Just about a week away now. Does anyone know if the bicycle show will be like the winter one where they give out awards or will it be just to show your bikes off? I went to the one last year but forget how it was. Hopefully there are a lot of vendors this year.

    RatMan here, The show will be "Peoples Choice" and we try to trophy about 5 deep if we have enough awards. Last year was our first year and we had about 20 vendors. The farthest distance traveled was Effingham, Detroit and possibly Cincinnati. I have not heard any negative feedback following last years event. Keep in mind that this is a FREE event and we will try to keep it that way as long as possible. It's just like any other flea market or swap meet--------------we can't do it without YOU!!!! BTW, we will actually have a Porta-Jon on site this year. Swap area opens 6 a.m. and spaces will be FCFS. See you-all there!!!!!!

    Wasn't really so much asking a question caring about awards as I have a lot of bikes I wouldn't mind showing but know in no way would they ever win anything. So I was just asking that in a sense...

    I kinda figured thats what you meant. I said what I said because I'm thinking more of the ice cream than anything else.

    Is the bike show in the same area as the strawberry festival or do you have to drive to the strawberry festival?

    The Strawberry Festival is within walking (or biking) distance. You will also want to visit the Cabages and Kings anique mall. Thanks for your inquiry, RatMan
