There is no doubt when spring comes to the south. There's the ever-familiar spring break mating call of "Keg Stand!" ringing down the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico while the ever-pleasing sound of frames punishing newly-poured asphalt can be heard making their way into the entrance of Frank Brown Park. This marks the 13th year of Vital Signs' Spring Fling. Although the weather for this year wasn't the norm for Florida during spring break, it didn't stop the show from pulling in another record turnout, and it certainly didn't halt any of the festivities that the Vital Signs gang had prepped for everyone. Tons of vendors, kids' activities, a stunt bike show, a Spring Fling Battle of the Bands, and the extremely popular Miss Spring Fling Bikini Contest, all went off without a hitch and kept everyone pumped. This show has really become a staple in the southeast for the minitruckin' community and we can see why! Mark your calendars; you don't want to miss this one.
