Even though Lexington, Kentucky, is known for its huge population of horses and horse events, we got to witness an even better event take over the town.
The 4th Annual Midwest Mayhem was set in the huge 28-acre Masterson Station Park, which provided plenty of room. The park also provided plenty of pavement and grass parking as well as some indoor and under-canopy parking to avoid the sun. Speaking of sun, there was plenty of it all weekend long as over 300 vehicles and around 2,500 spectators browsed the rows of vehicles and more vendors than a Kentucky Derby hat collection.
This being the fourth year of the show, things ran smoothly and the atmosphere was pretty laid back. There was plenty to keep the crowd occupied as games and contests tied up the center section of the park. There was everything from a pizza-eating contest to the always fun Miss Mayhem bikini contest. A truck limbo was also set up to see who was the lowest of the low. Once Saturday's events were over, it was time to move across town to Lucky's Autosports where an indoor Jell-O wresting ring was set up along with plenty of food for the onlookers.
