At this show, I also met show organizer Lowell Carhart to discuss details on the upcoming NY/NJ Show, as well as his new venture called the 22nd Street View. The View will be a new permanent fixture in Tucson for dealers to be able to have a year-round Tucson presence.
One of the nice perks of the 22nd Street show is the free parking. After visiting this show you can just walk across the freeway underpass to the other shows on the I-10 Corridor.
Large tent of the 22nd Street Show.
Note the deep blue sky, indicative of the great weather.
