In our tiny village, there are a few things we take for granted. A fantastic, old-fashioned Fourth of July parade with later fireworks on the actual holiday, an authentic Victorian Christmas the first Friday in December, a bicycle tour in August, and, on the first Sunday in June – Model A Day. It is the start to our Summer holidays.
Last Sunday, the sixth of June, this year was Model A day. Now, what is a Model A day, you might ask? Well, it’s a day that we celebrate all things American, including, most notably, the Ford Model A. Many villagers dress up in early 20th century garb and traverse the blocks of Model A’s as well as vendors, garage sales, and food stands that populate our downtown area. There is also music, in the form of old-time bands, that add to the festive atmosphere.
Our family goes every year, save for last year, with COVID running rampant. This year was a true celebration since it was the beginning of our return to normalcy after the pandemic sent us all into a tizzy. Time to get priorities straight, people!
So, here are some of the pictures that I took at the event. It was a real treat to see these old vehicles and to peruse the wares for sale. Everything from car parts to fresh produce. Good for everyone!
