In the northeast part of Tennessee lies Morristown, a small town located about thirty minutes north of Knoxville. Fortunately, many people have realized that even though it’s small, it’s a location that can handle a serious car show. For the past nine years Morristown has been the site for one of the fastest growing (and now one of the largest) east coast shows in existence. That show is known as Lay’d Out at the Park. Jeffery and Jessica Dillard are the sole organizers of this event, with help provided by some friends and family members. The event has been held at Morristown’s gorgeous Cherokee Park for the past nine years. This year’s event was by far the biggest yet. With over a thousand vehicles and well over 2500 spectators, this show had everything imaginable on display. There were plenty of trucks, cars and hot rods for everyone to “ooh” and “ahh” over all weekend.
Not only were there some of the east coast’s coolest vehicles, but also some of the industry’s biggest vendors showing off merchandise all weekend long. Big names such as Drop Em' Wear?, Metal Werks, KIK, Lay'd Out Video, Illusive design and fabrications all had booths at the show. There was also a live band playing throughout the day Saturday, followed by a bikini contest sponsored by the guys over at Chromed Out Customs. If you haven’t seen this event yet, quit lollygagging and come out. There’s no telling what Jeff and his crew are going to do next.

Next year’s event is already in the works, so mark your calendars for April 12-14, 2013. This is one show you don't want to miss!
