So here we are, May already, hard to believe that this year is almost at the half way point.
I hope you all had a very happy Cinco de Mayo and this Sunday (don't forget) it's time to celebrate all the Moms' out there and then of course we've got Memorial Day at the end of the month. That marks the "unofficial" start of Summer, so while we're BBQing or spending time at the beach let us not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day, let's be sure to give our thanks to the men and women of our Military who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
And if you're in the mood to take in a car show, or two, I've got some good ones coming up for you.
Let's begin with a show that's going on tonight, the Twilight Cruise at the NHRA Museum located at the Pomona Fairplex from 3-7pm. This is a monthly show held the 1st Wednesday of the month thru December (no show in September because of the LA County Fair) For a complete listing of the shows and all the details you can check out their website at www.museum.nhra.com
On Saturday May 16 the Cal Poly Pomona Farm Store presents the 9th Annual Tractor & Car Show and Stawberry Festival from 10am-4pm.
