Syracuse Nationals Last Day Tomorrow 7/19 + My Review

So yesterday I got the chance to attend the Syracuse Nationals show at the New York State Fairgrounds. It was my first time...my first time actually at any car show so I had no idea what to expect.

First, I don't know why but I expected to pay for parking and ALL parking is free! That was a nice surprise. Next, you can go in any of the gates at the Fairgrounds which was also nice. However my tickets were at the remote Gate 7 (courtesy of the Syracuse Nationals for my family). And I can't tell you how nice people were that directed me to where I needed to be. And not to be sexist, but the place was mostly full of men and I didn't think I would get good directions from any. Hehe. However, I was directed by a few very nice men and eventually found where I needed to be.


I brought along my 3 sons: ages 9, almost 8 and just about 8 months. So the first thing after finding our correct gate... we grabbed some food! I promised my sons french fries and/or ice cream and both happened to be near where we started out. At $2 for a large 'box' of fries - they were a fabulous deal and very very yummy!


Loved seeing cars like this!

Next we walked around while I pointed out several different styles of cars on display. I enjoyed the very colorful ones, and the really 'old' styles of the 1930's and 1940's. It was difficult to manage a large stroller and the other two kids so I didn't stop to talk to anyone about the vehicles there. And, I gotta say I must have said 50 times to my sons, "Don't Touch the Cars!". One gentleman nicely came over and told my 7 year old to not touch.

Car with a "drive thru" tray on display

While walking around we saw one vehicle with the old style drive thru...food on a tray on a car window. To see my boy's faces as I explained that was the original drive thru... priceless. I still think they don't believe me. :)

A sea of cars down one of the streets within the fairgrounds

The entire show was pretty amazing to see. Everywhere you could fit a vehicle there was one. And people camped out so they could tell you about their prized car. The atmosphere was warm and inviting throughout the entire place from the attendees, to the owners, to the employees at the fairgrounds.

We managed to go just before the rain hit on Friday afternoon. The weather was perfect to walk around and during the day on Friday there weren't a ton of people there. I had no problems pushing my big fat stroller through the crowds.

To be honest, my oldest son was interested somewhat in the cars, but my other son could have cared less. And frankly that made my experience not a joyful one. I would have preferred to go back in the evening with my oldest son or have a date night to really get a much better feel for the event. I personally would not suggest bringing children that are not interested. We ended up leaving earlier than I had planned after my son threw a tantrum when his food fell on the ground. (Being Honest Here!!). My infant son did fantastic, bringing a baby was fine!

Next year if I get to attend the show, it is a date night for mom... or a date day with my oldest son for sure.

Much thanks to the Syracuse Nationals for letting us attend the show! I read today that the show will be in Syracuse for the next five years so I am looking forward to going back to see more than I experienced my first time.
