For the twelfth year, Dropjaw presented and hosted Freak Show 12 located at the Lenoir County Fairgrounds in Kinston, North Carolina. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy had other plans for that weekend. As rain and winds up to 50 mph whipped through the campground area, the loyal minitruckers held their ground and set out to enjoy every minute of the hurricane-dampened event. Billed as an 18 and over event, I quickly learned why. The party starts on Friday night with rock bands and rap bands battling it out with the crowd, and once the music was packed away, the real party began.

As many faithful show goers enjoyed the onsite campgrounds, others made their way to the legendary show just for the freak show on stage. A Halloween costume contest is one of the more popular events on stage as well as the beer chug challenge followed by the always-entertaining "stranger" contest.

The Animated Attractions staff and Dropjaw wish to thank the hundreds of loyal supporters that didn't let Hurricane Sandy ruin one of the most popular shows in the South.
