Willys-Overland Field Day at Swayne Field, Toledo, OH 1911

My grandfather is in this pictures--does anyone else know the people in this post card?

Overland Day

I have a copy of a photograph of a many dozens of young men (mostly) all holding white flags on wooden sticks @ the Toledo Oh railyard. On the photo is the title 1. Overland Day 4-12-11. One of the young men in the photo is my greatgrandfather, (mistakenly pointed out according to my Aunt Cec). I have been trying to find out anything about this celebration, but have come up empty. Can anyone help?- Steve
