It is that time of year again; Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender. This is our 3rd straight year attending.
The first one we went to was Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender 14 and we were just looking for something to do that weekend. We only went to the public event, Saturday, which was the car show. I was in awww and was hooked from there. That was in April 2011. I could not wait until 2012 so we could go again.
The next year we decided we would attend all 4 days and as many events as we could. This was Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender 15. We had an absolute blast and met the nicest couple from Wisconsin. We hung out with JennaDLucks and her husband pretty much all weekend and still talk frequently to this day. She has become a very good friend whom I love dearly and wish lived closer.
We went vendor shopping, to the Pin Up Magazine party, the car show and listened to some great bands like Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys, drank and got tons of sun. The only downside to last years weekend was we drove all the way home each and every night and couldn’t party that much.
This year we got smart and decided to have a “staycation” and get a hotel room for the 3 nights so we do not have to drive home each night. I am really looking forward to this years event; Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender 16. Each year I get more and more clothing, shoes, hair accessories, make-up, purses, etc. Each year that passes I learn more about the event and try new things. Last year I took a Mitzi & Co class on hair and Bomber Betty Cosmetics on make-up and so this year I thought I would try something different. I am taking a class with Bettina May’s Pin Up Class with Secrets In Lace where she will share her expertise with wearing vintage style undergarments everyday!
I am super excited and look forward to having a blast with my hubby and my very own personal photographer, Brad Boening of Out-Of-Focus Photography. I will post new pics after!!
If you are into this kind of thing and have never been before you should look into it. Tickets for Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender 17 go on sale May 1, 2013.
