Just happened upon the show that closes off the Main Street. Hundred of vintage cars, a band and the beautiful Jacaranda trees. What's not to like. Loads of bars and restaurants to choose from too.

Over all State Street is very nice, but remember it is only an open air mall from top to bottom. One in eight stores had gone out of business but that is common for malls.
