Each year the small town of Celina, Ohio has a festival celebrating their position on a large reservoir known as the Grand Lake St Marys. The highlight of the festival is a gathering of Amphicars.
These cars were built in Germany from 1960 until 1965 – specifically to be able to not only drive on land but become a boat in water.
The car owners come from all over the country to Celina to celebrate their eclectic, but very cool, little car/boats.
The highlight of the cars visit to Celina is known as the ‘Splash In’, where the drivers enter the water.
The queen was on hand to kick off the celebration – and go for a ride.
Then it was time for the others to enter the water….
Once they were in the lake they cruised around for a while…..
Eventually the queen(s) headed home….
As the sun set the boats came into the harbor to turn into cars again….
