On Saturday, October 9 the Prescott High Country Rod Run took over three of the streets (Cortez, Montezuma and Goodwin) surrounding the Courthouse Plaza in Prescott Arizona. This event drew over two hundred street rods of all descriptions. It was sponsored by the Arizona Street Rod Association.


Here is a close-up of the sweet 1957 Chevy in the opening photo – does this bring back any memories?

Fallfest in the Park Arts & Crafts Show

Concurrent with the Prescott High Country Rod Run, the Prescott Chamber of Commerce was sponsoring another Arts & Crafts show on the Courthouse Plaza. I think we have way too many arts and crafts shows and I see many of the same vendors at each so I have stopped going. I suspect many people feel as I do.


I went through part of this show because I was taking pictures at the car show for this article. Lucky for my wife Liz as I purchased a nice Navaho turquoise necklace as a belated anniversary gift (don’t tell her).
