On July 30th we went to Moldy Marvin's Rat Fink Extravaganza and Car Show. There is a car show, bands, and contests galore-hoola hooping contest, tattoo contest, three legged race, etc. There is also a pool for swimming and spaces to camp overnight.We attend the show every year as my fiance's band Blue Collar Combo is always on the bill. The event gets bigger and better every year!
The first thing we did is watch Blue Collar Combo play.
Zachary-bringing home the bacon.
Then we walked around and looked at the cars on display. I found this cool PBR tap pull inside a rat rod.
I loved this vintage trailer!
Inside it was done all tiki.
So cool, right?
While I was at the event I decided to enter the pinup contest. The contest was initially a vintage swimsuit contest put on by Vintage Suits By Mary. Only myself and one other girl came to the show in a vintage swimsuit, so they had to change it to a pinup contest. I decided to still enter anyway because I really wanted the prize: a swimsuit of my choice from Vintage Suits By Mary!
The girls and I.
Me, hamming it up. Sorry for the poor pic quality-but it was the only one Zack got.
I had some really stiff competition! These girls were really "fresh"!
Before they told us who the winners were they made up walk around and show off the silent auction items.
A local friend, Jillie, won 3rd place! Go Jillie!
A beautiful girl that I just met that day, Lainey Bell, won second! Can you believe that little lady is a Mama? Her little girl is sooooo cute too! You go girl!
Then they announced first place....and the winner of the playsuit/swimsuit of your choice valued up to $100....
I was so excited!
We also got beautiful custom ribbons with our place on them!
I hung mine proudly in my dressing room.
This years Rat Fink Extravaganza really was the best one yet! Not just because of the great bands, cool cars, or because I won the pinup contest, but because of the new friends I made! Yay for new friends!
I ordered my swimsuit from Vintage Suits By Mary for next VLV and for my honeymoon. It should be here in a few weeks and when it comes I will be sure to show it to you all!
