    I'm hoping to make my way down for the weekend. The work week keeps me from the weekday events.

    Watching KDKA & they are saying rain until Friday, suppose to be dry Saturday. It's only suppose to rain for the arts festival & leave all the other summer events alone.

    I should have got pics from the Clemente Bridge event since they had some really nice cars but I was too busy trying to bounce between hot girls and nice cars. Here are pics from the show field at the PVGP
