This fascinating scene of hundreds of vintage cars parked in the Frederick Fair parking lot was taken by Lewis Reed. What is fascinating to me is, with all of these early cars painted in black, how on earth would you find your car in the parking lot?

The Frederick County Fair is one of the oldest agricultural fairs in the state of Maryland dating back to 1822 when it was known as the Cattle Show and Fair. Over the years the fair has changed names several times. Today, the Frederick County Fair is officially named the Great Frederick Fair. The GREAT Frederick Fair is celebrating 154 years in 2016 (Sept. 16-24).
