Yes, it was another HOT ONE, but HEY, it was the end of July in South-Central Florida! (Slide Show Below!)
Greetings Cruisers! Despite the challenging heat, Devane Park was packed with cars, trucks, bikes, and happy people. Plus, we had the classic ambiance of the U.S. Sugar Express steam locomotive train.
There’s nothing like the lonesome sound of a steam train whistle. But being that we’re car and bike people, you could also say the same things about a big-block Chevy or Hemi with open headers or a big-bore Harley-Davidson.
The gates opened at 7 am and as usual, cars were lined up by 6:30 to get a good parking spot near a tree. “DJ Ben” fired up his machine, a big, honk’n soundboard, and speakers by 8 am. You gotta have tunes for a car & bike show!
This year’s Caladium Festival Car & Bike Show had a simplified Awards deal. Here are our winners!
“Farthest Traveled” – Troy Evans, 2020 Corvette Stingray from Washington State

Legion Pit Master “Larry” will be slinging the burgers and dogs!
