:( :thinking: If the wedding is Saturday afternoon, you could still come for the 27th & 28th and leave Saturday morning in time to still make it to the wedding. (Unless you're part of the wedding party) Most people come on Friday but many come on Thursday and some come even days earlier; so, all would not be lost and you'd get to see most everyone.

For those of you who are vintage car lovers, please be aware that Kool April Nites big car festival/parade/show happens the same weekend as our gathering. The parade of cars happens Friday evening, with many of the streets blocked off and streams of beautiful vintage cars parading down the main streets of Redding, CA. Saturday is the main display at Redding's Civic Auditorium, where you will be able to see hundreds of cars up close. While the streets will be unblocked by then, you won't be able to park anywhere close to the Civic Auditorium because of all the displayed cars. You will be expected to park in the downtown parking lot, near the bus depot and take the free shuttle that is offered for that purpose. If you've never seen this event, I can tell you that it is spectacular.

I, for one, would love to see some of you with vintage cars (and trucks, Brian!) in the parade, pulling your teardrops!!!!!

To register to be a part of it, go here:

Knowing that this is going on, more people may decide to camp with us and go down to see it; so, be sure to get your camping reservations soon!!!!

Yes, a 30 minute drive from where you'll be camped, pretty much straight south, down Hwy 5. The parade goes right up Hilltop Drive and down Churn Creek Road, circling around. That's on Friday night...just a couple hours worth of fun. Take some chairs and sit along the road; but, get your spots early. I think the parade starts around 5:30 or 6:00 PM. I believe they block off the streets sometime after 4 PM. The car show is on Saturday, at the Civic Auditorium; but, I don't think they'll be letting you drive through for a "look-see". You have to go to the bus depot on California street; park there in the parking structure across the street, and take the free bus shuttle over to the auditorium. The car show is huge and would probably take you all afternoon to see everything.

With all the rain, mosquitoes will be out in large numbers this year.
Please remember to bring your mosquito/bug spray!
