Having a cool location is just one thing that sets some shows apart from others. It just so happens that the guys from Made 2 Envy have enough support from their hometown of Kingston, New York, to shut down an entire stretch of the main strip. Taking in the view of the Rondout Waterfront along the Hudson River, it's easy to see why so many people look forward to this midsummer show. With plenty to see and do, it's even clearer why the show keeps growing. Despite a little bit of rain on Saturday, club games, competitions, and a car-crush kept everyone busy during the day. At night, a legal drag session and drive-in movie brought everyone back to the waterfront.

This show truly has something for everyone and will continue to be one of the best shows in the Northeast. If you didn't make it to the '08 event, you will not want to miss this '09 installment. Check out www.envyfrenzy.com for more information.
