It’s the Rats To Riches car shows. Too bad there was no support from the Chamber Of Commerce, the city leaders and the few shops that are actually open when the show blocked the street. Don’t think they will be back, they are not haughty enough to be allowed in P.G.
“The venues and the shops that were open were great,” said Page. “We loved going to the show and then going to the restaurants. We had one PG business tell us they were one cheeseburger away from closing for good until we showed up. And then it was standing room only.”
Page said the club wanted to extend the show’s scope, but got no local support for the idea. “We got lots of promises, but no action” from the Chamber of Commerce. “A small hot-rod display like this is not static. It’s more of a lifestyle with music, things to do for kids, interaction with the vehicles, raffle prizes, etc. More of a festival than a gallery,” he said.
Ha ha, more of a festival than a gallery. Look around at all the damn elitist art galleries that are open about 20 hours a week . .
