We met on an early Sunday morning to travel to this year's Kunstfest. A group of Central Indiana Region members would be there as well. They sweep through Southern Indiana every few years to take in the Kunstfest and other sights and activities over a September weekend.
The drive out of Evansville was easy and uneventful.
New members Matthew Minnear and his wife accompanied us in their Macan S.
The fall sights are pretty much the same from year to year. Corn is being harvested. Soy beans are about ready.
However, this was a pleasant fall weekend and a reminder that end of our driving season is only two months away.
New Harmony's Kunstfest offers food, crafts, home-made items, vegetables, music and more to entice festival-goers.
There is just enough scenery along the way to make the drive relaxing.
Leafy overhangs add interest.
Soon we reached the junction at Indiana 69. New Harmony was only minutes away.
An enormous flag hung ahead at the intersection of Church Street and Main Street in the heart of New Harmony's Historic District. We made our way to a temporary Porsche "corral" in the Red Geranium Restaurant's parking lot.
The convenient parking lot is appreciated although a huge walnut tree covers one edge and can drop walnuts that are still in their large, dent-producing husks.
Of course, we had to look over the CIR Porsches.
Several SIR members began their stroll down Main Street.
Mark and Pam Faris lead the way.
Booths lined crossing streets, too. It was still early in the morning but the crowds would be here soon.
Mike Mammoser and his friend ran into Debbie Jackson.
Need a pumpkin for your fall decorating?
How about some cheerful scarecrows?
Here are Keith Snyder and his family visiting with Mark Roethemeier.
Susan Jindrich showed off the Porsche model names and numbers on a water bottle she bought at this year's Porsche Parade to Don and Donna Brandenburg.
Randy and Tami Brown check out the enticing baked goods.
There seemed to be something for everyone.
Late in the morning many SIR folks met at the Red Geranium for brunch.
(Thanks to Mike Mammoser for taking this shot.)
Central Indiana Region President Bob Snider greeted us and talked about getting together again in 2022.
