The week long event Joe’s Fest was kicked off in Freeport on Tuesday. The week long festival included a motorcycle show Tuesday and a car show Wednesday. There were over two hundred cars in the show including anything from classics form the 50’s to brand new supped up sports cars. There will be outdoor entertainment through this weekend.
Joe’s Fest started with humble beginnings. Originally it was just a fun way to show customer appreciation. But in the five years in which Joe’s Fest has been going on attendance has jumped to around five to six thousand people this year.
Throughout the last few weeks Jumping Joe’s has been holding “Freeport Idol” singing competitions. On Thursday a Freeport Idol champion will be crowned.
