There are few shows on the circuit that create the buzz that Freak Show does each year. This late-season event was designed to create memories that will take you through a cold winter and all of the way into Spring. Leave the kids at home, then come enjoy this hard-core weekend party. Show promoters Glenn & Mike Pilgreen, along with the help from an army of friends and family, have packed this show with action from start to finish. The show opened Thursday night at midnight and the line waiting to get inside told us how popular this event really is. Camping on-site gave our wallets a break and kept us in the middle of the action all weekend. Saturday night activities are legendary and x-rated. The Freaky Nights nightclub was new this year, and stayed open until 5 a.m. More than $5,000 went to lucky winners of a dozen different contests throughout the weekend and 400 drivers went home with trophies at theaward ceremony.
