Canadians are anxious to attend but still waiting for the border to open for nonessential travel. Bryan

If the current news reports are accurate (aren't they always accurate?), Canadians and other non-U.S. hobbyists won't be on the 'fields' of Hershey this year as the U.S. isn't going to ease the entry ban for non-essential travelers until November, despite Canada having done so for U.S. travelers in early August.

With out of country visitors being locked out, I'm assuming it shouldn't be too hard to get a room for a night or two?

Just a thought, I used AirBnB and got a really nice, two bed room apartment two blocks away from the park for $199 a night.

That rate was cheaper and closer than the hotel we normally stay at.

It is a pity that Canadians will not be able to attend. I also think that a lot of regular visitors from Overseas will be absent this year.

Same problem for us here in the UK. I have been to Hershey most years since 1977 and will very much miss the great event and meeting up with the many friends that I have in the USA. Hopefully next year but we said that last year !!
Have a great show and I will be thinking of you.

In addition to the Annual Swap Meet, Hershey is famous for its Chocolates.

It's ironic that Hershey candy and chocolate is cheaper at the local grocery store than it is at the show.

Next week's weather forecast for Hershey is not very good. At least there will be no mud on the main fields.

I know. I saw that. Hopefully it's still a few days away. This is one situation where you're glad and hope the weathermen aren't always right.

I'm exhausted and in a lot of pain and had a great time again. I had the best year selling ever, but that's because of the stuff I took, not the crowd. Repeat vendor friends reported significantly lower sales than expected.

Saw little flathead speed equipment for sale except for intakes.

There seemed to be about 90% occupancy of spaces, about like 2019. The crowd was down considerably, the aisles were easy to walk, and the car traffic was the least I've ever seen.
Tip for next year - the new Chocolatier restaurant next to the south red field and Arena is great. Huge, very few customers while I was there, terriffic food, was a real nice place for a mid day break.
Lots of expected food vendors on the field were missing, I heard a rumor Herco was charging $5k rent to food vendors now.

Hey you can always enter the US from the southern border as you can just run across and nobody cares. It only makes your travel to Hershey a little longer.
