Downtown tour of Cleveland, Mississippi. Sorry the weather wasn't acting 100% - hit a lot of areas of fog. Somehow I think it added to the mystery of the delta. These towns are so rich in history.

Vintage Trailer Event 2016
To All The Hep Cats In The Know:
Get Jazzed Up For A Vintage Trailer Show
by Nat Frothingham
(From The Bridge montpelierbridge.com )
MONTPELIER — Villages, towns and cities across the country celebrate summer with parades and fireworks, or dazzle locals and visitors with a country fair or a homecoming festival, or a barbecue pit, or any other near-unique event.
But how many communities have organized a show with vintage trailers rolling into town from 10 states and two Canadian provinces — a show that lets everyone not just look at the trailers, but talk to the owners and go inside?
Here’s the news, then.
Last year’s successful vintage trailer show is coming back again this summer.
Once again it will be staged in downtown Montpelier, this year on State and Langdon streets. And it’s set for Saturday, August 20 starting at 10 in the morning and running until 3 in the afternoon.
Downtown shopkeepers who saw the show last year still have lively memories of the event.
At Chill Vermont Gelato on State Street, Nora and Theo Kennedy were busy serving gelato but they paused momentarily to remember last year’s show. Nora said it was fun and Theo said it had been good for business.
Out in front of Capitol Grounds on the other side of the street, owner Bob Watson was talking to a friend but after that conversation ended we walked into his coffee shop and talked about last year’s trailer show. “I lived it for a couple of reasons,” he said. “It was just so interesting. The trailer owners were very hospitable. And it brought a lot of people downtown.
As Quirky Pet owner Cindra Coniston said how much she liked the trailer people and how much she liked the trailers. “How could you not like Montpelier?” she asked, remembering the scene. “They had their awnings out.” Each was different.
A trailer show like this doesn’t come together by magic. Last year’s show and the show upcoming on August 20, lean heavily on the leadership, intelligence and drive of Steve Hingtgen, who lives with his wife and two daughters in Montpelier. He’s also a school board member and the owner of Vintage Trailer Supply, a business that supplies parts (even makes parts) for vintage trailer aficionados across in the United States and Canada, and other places as well.
In organizing the show, Hingtgen has reached out to vintage trailer owners across the Northeast. He’s invited trailer owners to sign up and bring their trailers to Montpelier. He’s told them how to get here, where they can camp overnight, when to bring their trailers into Montpelier and what to expect during the show.
In many ways, what Hingtgen has written to the trailer owners expresses the spirit of the upcoming event.
“We want your trailer in the show. We’d like you to put your trailer on display … You’ll love the atmosphere and you’ll love the people. Small town Vermont is a great place to share our passion for our hobby as it enters the mainstream in America. Summer Saturdays in Montpelier are a hive of activity with a popular farmers market and great local shops abuzz with locals and tourists alike. The Vermont Vintage Trailer show will take place in the middle of the action.”
Then Hingtgen sets some guidelines for what he wants.
Because space is so limited in the village, we’re accepting no more than 50 trailers for the show. All trailers must be built before 1979. Trailers should be in showable condition. That doesn’t mean your trailer is perfect, or even finished. It just means that a visitor would enjoy seeing it inside and out, and that you’d enjoy answering questions about it. If that describes you and your trailer, we want you to come be part of the show.”
