The Cruise In that was held during the 2015 festival drew over 55 Classic Hot Rods and Vintage Automobiles from every era. Farthest driven was Kenny Smith's pristine 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS from Akron, Ohio. Crowd favorite was Bill Bibb's 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn from Oak Hill, West Virginia. 2016 was our 1st Car Show which was a success. There were trophies for Best of catergories, door prizes, and more. The Best of Show was Chris Kappler's 1937 Packard from Oak Hill and the Best Classic was Oak Hill's Bill Bibb with his 1929 Lincoln Continental.
