FDL Labor Day Car Show And Corn Roast Cancelled

15-May-2014

There won’t be a 43rd year for the Wisconsin Street Rod Show and Corn Roast at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds this year. The Wisconsin Street Rod Association voted at the end of last month not to hold the annual Labor Day Weekend event. Fond du Lac Convention and Visitors Bureau President Craig Molitor says the event represents about 100 room nights a year in income for area hotels, but beyond that was an event the community looked forward to. Fond du Lac County Executive Al Buechel says it did bring a lot of enjoyment for a number of people. Organizers of the event say in a Facebook post that increased costs and the passing of several key members led to cancellation of the event. The Wisconsin Street Rod Association founded in 1971 plans on remaining an active car club and is planning for a one day event in 2015.

wow that really is so sad, it has been family day or mens day or fathers day weekend tradition, for thousands of people every year, i thought it would go on another 57 years and make it to a 100 anniversary, i wish they would re consider it,
