This years Macungie event was canceled due to COVID, Bruce Uhrich has put together a great montage of photos over the years. Always a great event for true Checker friends to enjoy the prized rides.
I went through my files of pictures taken at Macungie which start with 2005. My comment for the group is that Das Awkscht Fescht (The August Festival) was not only a Checker gathering started by Don McHenry, but also an annual get together of friends. The header photo from 1994 is my son Matt and I with my 1967 Marathon. The 2009 photo was the last heavy rain event when the show was closed at 10am.
As an added bonus, here’s a video from 2019. Hopefully, things will be back to normal for 2021.
