      While the car show on Sunday is the event that makes Midwest Treffen, it's not the only thing going on! This year at Treffen we have the following actives going on through out the day on Sunday:

      Swap Meet
      Continuing the growing list of "New for 2011," this year at Treffen we will be offering dedicated spaces for a swap meet during the car show on Sunday. Got a garage full of OE or aftermarket parts for cars you no longer own? Or can you open a showroom with all the spare sets of wheels you've built up? There will be 32 standard sized parking spaces available for the swap meet, at a cost of $20 per space, first come first serve, so don't dawdle on showing up on Sunday! See MidwestTreffen.com for details.

      Cup-Crushing Competition
      If you're vehicle is riding low on air suspension, the Midwest Treffen 15 Cup-Crushing Competition is a perfect way to show off. Each participant will be given two opportunities to place a paper cup under an exterior body panel (i.e. bumper or side-skirt) and lower their vehicle, crushing the paper cup as much as possible. The vehicle that crushes the cup the most will be crowned winner and will receive a very special award!

      Dunk Tank
      Come to Midwest Treffen 15 and enjoy giving someone a splash! Everyone loves a Dunk Tank, so for 2011 we're bringing one to the show on Sunday. Pay a nominal fee and take your turn trying to dunk one of our volunteers. Be sure to practice throwing a strike!

      Bag Toss
      Midwest Treffen has always been an atmosphere that goes beyond the car show, and 2011 is no different. Feel free to enjoy a game or two of Bag Toss between friends. At a cost of $1 per person for each game, friendly competition has never been more affordable!

      Sidewalk Art
      Being a family-oriented event, Midwest Treffen strives to offer many activities for families to enjoy throughout the day. New for 2011 is a sidewalk art area, giving show attendees the chance to decorate the sidewalk with the chalk design of their choice.

      Update!
      The Cup Crushing Competition for cars on air suspension was envisioned as going hand in hand with sponsorship from an air suspension company. Due to the lack of a sponsor, the competition is in danger of being cancelled. If the event is cancelled, the competition will be replaced with an award for lowest bagged car (as measured by MidwestTreffen staff).
