Swealtering Heat At Symmes Township

The first ever Symmes Township Firecracker Festival Car Show was quite a success despite it being held in near record heat. With high humidity the mid 90s temperatures made it feel as if it was well into the 100s. Still it did not deter the likes of a Buick Gran Sport, a 1968 Chevy Camaro Super Sport, a first generation Ford Thunderbird, a 1967 Chevy Malibu station wagon, a very sweet low rider, a Malibu, and a pair of very nice Camaros.

Symmes Township Firecracker Festival

Each year Symmes Township holds the Firecracker Festival. It's filled with food and rides and games for the whole family and ends up with a fireworks display. This year they expanded and added a car show. For the first year of this show it turned out to be pretty good. On display was a gorgeous Mercury Cougar, two different era Ford Mustangs, a 1964 Ford Fairlane, a Chevy Handyman, a new Nissan, a new Scion, and a new Toyota.
