    This Saturday is my hometown's annual car/motorcycle/aircraft show at the municipal airport in Osceola, WI. I've been going as a spectator since I was a kid and showing my own cars for the last decade and it's always a great time. I'm pretty certain the cost of entering a vehicle in the show is $10 and there's a 1/4 mile strip set up on the runway that you can pay $35 to compete on as well, spectator entry and parking is free. There are usually several hundred cars spanning all genres (although mostly classics), an aerial acrobatic show, helicopter rides, and of course food and beer, plus a few other fun attractions. I'll be there bright and early with my bugeye (Biscayne will have to wait until next year unfortunately) so if anyone is coming out let me know so we can bro down over some sweet rides and cold beer. There's also a small community fair going at the same time and other cool stuff to check out around town if you get bored with the show. Link to the show's website and Facebook page are below.

    Dang this looks fun. I'd be down if I was around. I'm not sure if I knew about this one. Might have to put this on the list of events to go to. I'd also like to get to Oshkosh sometime for the air show, just never made a point of it yet.

    I used to go to this when it was hosted by Motorbooks International. Do they still have a presence there with discounted publications?

    I think they have a whole hangar set up there if I remember correctly. Motorbooks moved to Minneapolis a few years back, their old building is now used by a software company and a daycare place that my son goes to.

    Damn. I work until 1:00 on Saturday. Is this always the second Saturday in September? I want to put it on my calendar for next year.

    Pretty sure it is. Wish I'd have thought to bring it up earlier but I was preoccupied with the LaX cruise stuff. Would be cool to get even a small group of Subies there representing us. Maybe next year?

    You're right, I did. I missed last year's though because I was in Houston all of September helping out with all the claims we got from hurricane Harvey.

    It's definitely the second Saturday of September every year. The car club I'm in does a show the same weekend so I've never been able to attend the Osceola one, which is annoying. There's also a sprint car special at Cedar Lake the same night every year that we've missed every time as well. Seriously considering opting out of the car club for a few years to be able to take in a few different things instead.

    There's also a street racing event in Duluth every year on this Saturday, too. Can't remember what it's called but they actually close down the street and do legal drag racing. Apparently it's gotten pretty popular over the last couple years.

    Kia of Duluth drag races and car show. I was going to go if we weren't in Pennsylvania. Looks pretty neat

    Thanks. I've added it to my calendar for 2019 with a 5 day prior reminder.

    Never got around to posting an update after the show but it was a pretty good turnout. I unfortunately couldn't find any other Subies but there were plenty of cars to see. I didn't take a lot of photos but got a few of my favorites and some just to show the variety there.
