Well Hot August Nights wrapped up yesterday with most of the thousands of visiting vintage autos leaving town for another year after parading down Virginia street on Sunday. Vicki and I spent Saturday afternoon and evening at the Sparks Victorian Square venue eating junk food and looking at the cars. Afterwords we watched the cars cruise and then a concert featuring a local 50’s 60’s group called “Route 66” who opened for the main attraction Gerry and the Pacemakers, who were playing in Sparks while Blood Sweat and Tears were doing their thing at the Grand Sierra. Last year it was Herman’s Hermits vs. Tony Orlando at the same venues. In spite of the high cost of fuel we still had a few hundred thousand people show up for the 10 day event. The only down side I noticed was that many more of the cars remained parked rather than cruising as they normally do. I suppose they were saving gas.
