ICYMI: Pomona State Park celebrates great weekend of ‘going retro’

Happiest campers award went to these greeters welcoming visitors to their camper, “Roseanne”, a 1963 Mobile Scout that belongs to Eric Marx.

If time slipped by and you missed it, Pomona State Park celebrated another great weekend of “going retro” during the annual Going Retro Car, Vintage Trailer And Antique Boat Show, on Aug. 17-19, 2018. In addition to the car show, spectators had the opportunity to step back in time and view the many vintage campers, inside and out, that filled the campsites of two campgrounds in the park.

Hosts of the event, Friends of Pomona State Park, have announced the winners of the shows as follows:
