Above you see a music video showcasing the sights of last year’s Kentuckiana’s GI Joe Winterfest.  This year’s show takes place January 27 in Louisville, Kentucky (with a preview night on the 26th). You can find my photo essays devoted to last year’s show  HEREHEREHERE and HERE.

As always at a Kentuckiana GI Joe event, we had a great time, and it was a wonderful toy show. I turned Mrs. PopCulteer, Mel Larch, loose with the video camera, and for reasons I can’t quite explain, I decided to edit what she shot to Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No 2.

Your PopCulteer and his lovely wife will be heading West (it’s really a pleasant drive) to just South of Louisville, Kentucky for the GI Joe Winterfest, a toy show produced by the fine folks being The Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo (which happens at the end of July). Check out the Facebook Event Page for full details and preview photos. Reportedly, the snow will be gone by the time we head down there, so it should be pleasant all around.

This will be our second Winterfest, and it’s back at the new home of The Kentuckiana show.  GI Joe Winterfest happens at the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre, at 395 Paroquet Springs Drive, in Shepherdsville, KY.  It’s not far at all from the South Louisville Antique Toy Mall, so most toy collectors ought to have an easy time finding it. Check out how cool it looks…

Kick off the new year with a a celebration of 60 years of GI Joe. Find old and new 12 inch and 3 3/4 inch GI Joes, plus Star Wars, Super Hero figures, Marx, TMNT, Transformers and much more.
