Some of us are heading down Friday the 13th so we can watch the drag races. They sent out an email with updated event times. Here it is......
Volksfest 2013
September 14th &15th

Hello, last year you joined us in all the fun of Volksfest and we just wanted to send you an invite for this year. We have a few new things in store for this year! Saturday we will have Dave Manning performing his music and later in the evening as the sun sets we will play his "bus movie". We will be his only northwest stop!!

He's played Folsom Prison. He's opened for the likes of Dan Bern, Mose Allison, and Squirrel Nut Zippers frontman James Mathus. He's held up traffic all over the west puttering along in an old VW Microbus that Arlo Guthrie autographed. Dave is living his life in the old tradition of the traveling-storytelling songwriters.

Dave is a two-time finalist in the Alaska Song of the Year Contest in the “Alaska Songs” category. He also received an honorable mention in the 2001 Anchorage “Press Picks” for his excellent songwriting. The Anchorage Press called his CD “a treat from beginning to end.”

Dave tours in “Vincent” his ’65 Microbus. In a time when the traveling storyteller and songwriter have long been replaced by television and Karaoke, Dave is still out there with the last of them. Cruising at a lazy 50mph and playing in a different town every few days, Dave isn’t afraid of “paying his dues.” His bus is full of stories of the road from AK to the high deserts of Arizona and everywhere between.

Dave’s previous job as a documentary videographer for Heartbeat Alaska; a show specializing in bush Alaska, allowed him into the lives of amazing people from all over the North. You may have seen his work on PBS, ABC, CBS, FOX and the Discovery Channel. The people and places he sees first hand ring out in his songs, (sometimes they don’t tell you the whole story on TV).

Dave’s voice is most often compared to Tom Waits, and his style on the piano varies widely from soulful ballads to blues, country to boogie-woogie. He is the definition of an engaging performer; even improvising songs based on audience members’ names. He always brings along his fist-full of blues harmonicas that round out his sound. He is also an award-winning published poet, and has both spoken word and music releases.

Saturday we will also have games for the entire family. Poker run as always will be in the afternoon before the games. Camping will be a great time to meet everyone. You are welcome to bring a bbq and enjoy the park and great vw lovers

Sunday,yep, its the day of the show

Friday their will be drags at our local drag strip



We hope to see you this year!

The east vs. west flat head race is Saturday the 14th at Vantage, we've stopped there before to take a break and check out some badass cars. Spoke with Josh from Timebomb and he said swing on by since we will be heading that way. Not sure what time the they take the count on the cars but if I remember correctly its like 1030.

It is about 3 hours to Vantage in a VW, just in case you forgot, since you drive a Honduh everywhere. I am up for going that route, just depends on which out of town folks can make it that early.

Seems like we have more questions.

Hey there Superfreak, the Spring show was last in Lacey 4 years ago. In the parking garage last two years, and the year before that it was at that old lumber mill type building. Smile

I do have photos from 2 years ago, you were riding with Corey and Wheezy, remember we were in the Velvet Green '65?
