It’s a world-class car show, Drag Times Hall of Fame reunion and weekend full of fun, and it’s all happening right here in downtown Henderson with an anticipated economic impact in Vance County of about $2 million.
This week and weekend roughly 35,000 people will come from all over the United States and parts of Canada to participate in and see the 16th annual Show Shine Shag and Dine in downtown Henderson.
Wilson said, “They love our little town. They never have negative things to say about our area, and they come back year after year, so they must like it. They enjoy coming here, and they have great things to say about the restaurants and the staff that waits on them, and we do not get any negative feedback. It’s amazing.”
These types of events can also become the face of a town like Henderson. During the TownTalk episode today, Wilson said she had and demonstrated an effort to work with our new Vance County Economic Development director and the new director of the Henderson-Vance Downtown Development Commission.
As a part of the Saturday morning and afternoon event downtown, the Corbitt Preservation Association will have its annual display of Corbitt Trucks at the corner of Montgomery and Williams Streets.
There are also other events during the weekend on Friday and Sunday. Be sure to check out www.kerrlake-nc.com for a full list.
