Sweet! It is time again for "The Eve of Destruction" at Thompson Speedway in Thompson, CT. And if you don't know what it is, I suggest you take a little trip to this family fun event. E.O.D. is a combination of events from bouncy house galore to dirt bike races and extreme (and odd) destruction.
Last year, we packed up the boys and headphones (because it gets loud) and hit the stands.
For $18 for adults and $10 for children, the kids were able to enjoy unlimited access to bouncy haven. Then they watched in amazement the jet-fueled outhouse, jet-fueled bus and the jet-fueled car. And then you can't forget the fire beathing transforming t Rex machine. I think the demolition derby between cars, busses, and trucks was mesmorzing especially for the adult crowd. Oh yeah, it was quite up the alley of my two boys, and I enjoyed it too.
This year, the demolition rally will be a staple but it sounds like a human cannonball has joined the entertainment roster, as well as drag racers, fireworks, and monster trucks. So if you are looking for something different to do this Memorial Day weekend that is a little out of the ordinary, you might want to check it out. Gates open at 1:30 and show starts at 6. By the way they do have a cooler policy, you can bring a personal sized cooler but you need to leave the alcohol and glass products at home.
