I totally love the Nickelodeon show iCarly. So when I found out Nathan Kress, aka Freddie Benson, is going to be at the Kragen O’Reilly Grand National Roadster Show this Saturday at Fairplex, well, I let out a little scream. OK, it was huge scream. And I scared my co-workers. And so what if I like iCarly and I’m not 13. I was – once. Sheesh. It’s not like they don’t watch SpongeBob. Anyway, Freddie will be here, so bring the family!
Nathan plays the technical producer for the iCarly web show, which stars Miranda Cosgrove as Carly and Jennette McCurdy as Sam. In real life, Nathan loves cars and comes from a long-line of car enthusiasts. Both his dad and grandfather were mechanics. Nathan just purchased his dream car – a 2010 Chevy Camaro. How appropriate that he would be stopping by the Grand Daddy car show of them all – the Grand National Roadster Show.
Nathan will be signing autographs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in Building 4. Donations will be accepted for GNR’s two charities, the Progeria Research Foundation and the Gwendolyn Strong Founation, which helps families with children who suffer with spinal muscular atrophy.
The Grand National Roadster Show is a great event for families. Besides meeting Nathan, there is a ton of entertainment and beautiful cars. The show runs Friday through Sunday. Check the website for ticket prices and details.
