Fiestas de Cuba

We took the Model T down to the Fiestas de Cuba parade and car show on Saturday. Fiestas de Cuba is a organized by the Immaculate Conception Church and raises funds to support the Immaculate Conception School. Galena rode with me in the parade, and threw candy to the children along the street. Here're a couple of pictures of us in the parade. They're much the same, just taken at different locations.

Here's one of the lineup at the car show. It was a car, truck and motorcycle show, and was open to all kinds from antiques to hot rods to low riders.

Smokey Bear was at the Fiesta, too. He's meeting some of the local children.
The Model T drew a lot of attention and a lot of questions. It took second place in the truck class, and "Best of Show" overall.

Here's a picture of the 55 Chevrolet pickup that took first in the truck class.

It was a long day in the sun. Here're Galena relaxing with Sophiah after we got home.

  1. We are so glad your Model T got some attention and second prize and best of show award. Looks like your trophy was a whopper. I was so disappointed the Model T didn't get any recognition here at the Leoti parade that we know of. I thought it having local history and perfect job of restoration that it should have been well recognized. I haven't talked to Dean Wiegers the parade chairman yet but am going to voice my opinion.
    We are in bad need of a rain to get the wheat drilled as it has been so hot and dry and windy for so long. I guess we are a day closer to a rain as each day goes by!
