The annual Wing ‘n' Wheels event this past weekend was a success, according to Rinda Coons, interim executive director of the Powell Valley Chamber of Commerce.
“The numbers were definitely up this year for the car show. We had 100 cars entered,” she said, “Numbers were up for general attendance, too.”
She added that she would have exact numbers later this week.
“The pilots said it went well. They seemed pretty happy, so that's good,” she said, “The weather was beautiful, thank goodness. It wasn't too hot or cold, so that was great.”
The family-oriented event, in its twelfth year, featured an aerial performance by Red Eagle Air Sports, a vintage car show, and flights for the public, as well as food and entertainment.
