Prospect CT Sock Hop and Car show

The weather  has been wonderful lately bordering on hot so the day should be ideal.



Food and Beverage stands will be set-up by in-town vendors.

Find some time to come out, work the memories and maybe even the feet to the tunes.

Parking is available behind the town hall and nearby school lot.

Now you're talking! This sounds like my kinda fun! Although I was too young for the poodle skirts, my all girl High School still had Sox Hops and once a month we got to invite the boys! Oh joy! They muscle cars too!!! My favorite was the 1967 GTO convertable in Gold.

Ed, I think I saw one of my old cars that I used to own briefly in college. How I love these old cars--they truly bring back memories for me. I have NO idea what the new cars are now...they just don't do it for me!

I haven't thought about sock hops in so very long. They were a blast and we could dance and slide in our sock feet. Oh what fun we had.

Ed, really enjoyed the video. 750 cars is quite a show...the cool thing is that I owned some of those when I was younger...wish I had them now!
