BLAST from the PAST

If you love the music from the 50s and 60s you should have been in Bancroft last night. It was a walk down memory lane.

The main street was closed off and turned into a pedestrian mall.

Vintage cars, classic cars ......................

unusual cars lined both sides of the street.

Freddie Vette and the Flames took us back in time to the music of the 50s and 60s and they were good. I especially liked the sax player who could make that instrument talk.

Lots of delicious food was available. Spare ribs, chicken and pulled pork were the speciality of "Horn Dawgs" and it was lip smacking good.

They even had a plane on display to remind everyone of the pancake breakfast and fly-in Sunday morning.

Today it is the vintage boat show in the park. 

It's summer and lots to do and enjoy in Bancroft.
