Cars of Summer 2017

We went to Cars of Summer 2017 yesterday. It’s their fifth annual event, running July 1-3 at Green Hill Park in Worcester, MA.

My Favorites – July 1, 2017

There were a lot of beautiful cars there yesterday but these are my favorites.

I posted the rest of my July 1 photos on Flickr.

My Favorites – July 2, 2017

We saw the Silverbacks play. They’re a really great band. It’s a lot of fun to see a group of musicians who are all excellent at what they do and clearly enjoy playing together.


I posted more performance photos on Flickr.

Kid Stuff

The Cars of Summer organizers have created a really nice, family friendly event. There are fun things for the kids to do; a shuttle wagon to help people get around the (very hilly) park; costumed characters; and lots of food. It’s a very thoughtful event and that’s much appreciated.

There goes Webslinger with another group of happy passengers. #carsofsummer17 #worcesterma @carsofsummer
