Hamburg PA Show ( fantastic ) general info about:

Postby Coqui » Mon Jun 10, 2013 5:00 pm

I went to the PA. Show for the first time, this Saturday.
I've heard many good things about the show and I must
Say I really enjoyed it. The place was packed with vendors and
Yes there were a good amount of people selling Darts. Unfortunaly,
I did not find a pair of Popa's or Cayo de Agua but in any events tons of supplies great
Prices and alot to see. Definitely worth the 3 1/2 hour drive for me.
Can't wait for Frog Day in NYC.

Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Hamburg is old..pretty unique and....'different'. LOTS of stuff to look at an people to watch. People watching is excellent. Kind of like 'birding'.

Sometimes when I'm lost in the sea of humanity amongst the crowded aisles and older ladies pushing strollers with dogs in them,I let my mind wander and envision myself in the movie 'Hellboy II" and Hamburg is the....

Yes, I did forget to mention it was a little warm
In the place considering that the outside temps
Were cool. I can only imagine how it would be in
August. Thanks for the warning.

I couldn't tell you because never really seen blue jeans to compare. they weren't small. on kingsnake ads there is a picture of what they look like if the ad is still up. San Juan River is what simply natural dart frogs calls them.

Hamburg vendor tables are 75.00 each, I believe. The CATCH is that if you are a new vendor, there is a 95% chance that Denise (runs the show) will tell you that the 'show is booked and there are no tables'. Its very hard to get a table.

Hamburg is going on RIGHT NOW 4/25/2015 and Chris Sherman has driven all the way down from New England to attend for his FIRST TIME!! Will he see some odd stuff? Will he be scared of all the Goth, metal, biker, snake, venomous people??
Will he purchase a hamburger from the vaunted 'concession stand'? Will other frog-ers recognize him?

All these questions and more to be answered tonight over many a pumpkin ale craftbeer and wings with myself and Craig (cbreon)....

I do enjoy that show, especially when the weather cooperates. I wished, I did not have other commitments the same day.
Maybe next time. Weather permitting of course.
