Lake Perris Teardrop Gathering 2019

Written by Gary, Photos by Yafei

One of our favorite events of the year is the annual Lake Perris Teardrop Gathering. This year saw over eighty teardrop campers descend on the park, about ten less than registered, most likely due to the cold and wet start to the weekend! However, for those that came, it was time to meet friends old and new and share fantastic food at the Dutch Oven Cookout on Friday night and the Pot Luck on Saturday evening.  As the old saying goes, a picture can tell a thousand words, so rather than write too much in the way of commentary, I hope you enjoy the many images below of the event.
