October is a beautiful time of year in the Sierra. Days are still warm and the leaves are changing color. Evenings are cool and the skies light up with stars. Hotel rates have dropped and the crowds inside Yosemite have thinned out from the summer. This is the perfect time to visit Mariposa!
The entire show is a family fun event, so bring the kids and plan on spending some time at the Mariposa Yosemite Hot Rod and Custom Car Show.
