41st Annual Park Full Of Art 7/18/15

Yes, what a year for the annual Griffith Park Full of Art! I missed last year. Went the year before. I felt the quality of art keeps growing at this event. Artists from all over the states, and our local artists, gather here because it is such a nice setting. The park with it's trees, walkways, and flow of people make for a relaxing event.

Enjoy the photos, and mark you calendar for next year!




The next photo, and some further down in this blog, is art from our Griffith schools. Such artists. Christi and I fell in love with one piece that we want to buy.












The next couple of photos is art created by Joseph Trgovich of Crown Point. I really enjoyed his colors and design. This was his first show.








The food was great, everyone attentive and courteous. Lots of place to sit and eat. If I did not have other things to do, I would have spent my entire day at this event.


















Some of the artisans donated work to raffle off. Christi won something!


Thank you Griffith for thinking of the community, and of NW Indiana. I have come to appreciate everything you do for us. Please, keep doing it and grow.

Blue Top Drive In

Image from 7/26/2014 Blog



I knew this was coming up, however, I had forgotten when. Christi and I were at Wicker Park dog park with Bubba, when we saw all the E85 fuel cars backing out of trailers and lining up across the street. Then I remembered this must be the day at Blue Top.

We hopped in the car and drove across the street to verify what they were up to. By the time we got there the Highland police began their escort, so we quickly turned around and got ahead of them, heading to the Blue Top. This video (click here) shows us after we turned off ahead of the pack to cut back North into some parking (the alien green Kia Soul). The video shows the 8 and 9 second E85 race cars. They were all pretty cool.

It is very nice to see people step up and secure our heritage as it were. Blue Top has been around for a lot of years, built in 1938. I recently took a trip down Rt. 66 (not a full trip) and saw many of the sites. I have to say, Blue Top wins hands down.

Here are some photos from the evening. All I can say, lot of nice rides! You can check out my other blog posts by clicking here, and here.  Owe, for the gear heads that may see this page, check this blog out too (click here).
