We love everything local! Gears & Grub is the perfect example of good local people putting on a great event! The festivities were held at the new and improving West Erie Plaza July 13th, 14th & 15th and featured tons of local artists, food and businesses!
This was the second year for the event and our second year participating! We had a blast after the craziness of the initial set up! Luckily, the wonderful maintenance crew of the plaza came to the rescue and secured our special set up directly into the pavement for us! Owner CA Conrad and Project Coordinator Emily Smicker put in major work this year and tripled the scale of the event!
If you missed out this year, make plans to attend next year! It will be even bigger and better!
Below are our favorite images with a little description of the action! The beautiful ladies dressed “Pinned Up” in the photos are a combo of our favorite volunteers as well as all the contestants in this year’s Miss Pin Up Erie contest! Be sure to visit our Facebook Page to find out all the details on how the girls are competing for the crown at Penny’s Pin Up Party 2017! You don’t want to miss it!
We had a blast with the souvenir photo booth we set up!

A few of our favorites were there to sell their skills and wears! Tara of Taradoodles face and body painting paid our booth a visit and hid a Rock out Erie rock in our booth good for 1 free facepainting! <3
