    Washington, NC to Present Lee Chevrolet's 4th of July and the City of Washington Fireworks

    Lee Chevrolet is sponsoring a Pre 1988 Best Old Classic Car Contest Thursday, July 4, 2013 on Stewart Parkway in Washington, NC.

    Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three winners: Best in Show $500.00, Second Place $300.00, and Third Place $200.00. The contest will be held Rain or Shine. Early entry registration is $15.00 with custom designed dash plaques for the first 50 entries received. Go to www.WHDA.org to register.

    Registration the day of the event will be $20.00. Registration will take place from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Participants need to enter at the west end of Stewart Parkway at Gladden Street. Judging will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. with cash prizes being awarded by 2 p.m. All proceeds from the registrations will be donated to charity.

    When asked why he was interested in sponsoring a car show, Steve Lee of Lee Chevrolet stated he thought it would be a fun family event that could be enjoyed by all ages and would help fill the time waiting for the music and fireworks later in the evening. Larry Lang, a Washington resident and show entrant, used to attend a 4th of July car show in Greenville. Lang thought it is nice to have an avenue for people to come downtown and enjoy a day on Washington's waterfront in celebration of Independence Day, especially with the holiday falling in the middle of the work week. Lang also thought it was great to have a car show that awards cash prizes versus trophies.

    Other activities include a special edition of Saturday Market that morning and a corn hole tournament that runs throughout the day. Many downtown merchants and restaurants will be open. Live music by the Dickens Band will be starting at 6 p.m., Joy the Clown will be in Festival Park to entertain the kids, George & Martha Washington will be available for photos, there will be food vendors, and a Bills' hotdog eating contest sponsored by Coldwell Banker Coastal Rivers Realty.

    Fireworks will begin at 9:15 p.m.

    Join us for a fun filled 4th on Washington's beautiful waterfront.

It began as a light rain Thursday night, January 20th, with temperatures a balmy 46 degrees, and by morning a thin layer of ice clung to the firm, bright reddish green Nandina leaves prevalent upon my personal grounds here in Mac'swood.
The renovated and recently revived Turnage Theater has fallen on some pretty hard times as of late, and is being forced to shutter its doors.
I love watching, and taking pictures of small beautiful things just as much as I love making images of wide sweeping vistas. It is all part of God's natural plan, and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to record it for all posterity.
After four full days of frozen Mac'swood cabin fever, I struggled out to take an iced numbing look a my old muse.
When the ice took over, it was unrelenting, and with the full sun of cloudless days, the snow saw little melt
It was hailed as the Bomb Cyclone, a storm consisting of warmer moist air from the Gulf of Mexico that picked up a spinning motion after its center crossed the northern Florida coast, now over the Gulf Stream, and without delay barrelled north up the Atlantic Seaboard.
Sunsets are a natural phenomenon, and always a process where one can estimate that the evening will produce a magnificent sunset, but, one can never be altogether sure until it either happens, or the light of the day unceremoniously just turns dark.
