Silent Night - After the evening activities concluded and most folks had retired to their hotel rooms for the night, many of the early-arriving antique show cars could be seen parked and covered overnight on the Show Field.

No worries though. Our security team of off-duty police officers was just beginning their overnight patrols of all the Show Field and trailer parking areas, keeping everything safe and secure.
