Yikes! is right! See the two people holding the pole on the left? See the small dot? That’s Jo Windham, helping hold the ribbon for “cutting” by the plane! Jo said that she was shaking in her shoes but when it was over it was a thrill to be a part of the opening ceremony, and live to tell about it!

Over 4,000 people which nearly doubled the population of Bath County, attended this years Wings and Wheels Festival at Ingalls Field Airport atop Warm Springs Mountain. The attendance was the largest in the event’s five year history.

Not only were the crowds thrilled by gravity-defying air show stunts but they were also delighted by the shiny and  meticulously restored classic and vintage vehicles on display by their proud owners. Children found entertainment in the form of food, rides, and a small train.

Another festival done for the year but more are in the planning stages. For a complete calendar of local events visit http://www.discoverbath.com/
