Truck Show and Swap Meet Bring Crowds to North Carolina
The Moonshine Valley F-100 Show and Maggie Valley Swap Meet brought pandemic-weary crowds to scenic Maggie Valley, North Carolina, on July 17-18. Home to several automotive events because of the beautiful mountains that surround the town, the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds hosted a great crowd all weekend.
“We saw near-normal spectator attendance during the two days that the events were held,” says Larry Crain, event organizer. “The vendor count for the swap meet saw an increase in new people setting up for the event and an increase in vendor numbers, with more than 135 registered.”
Even with the few rain showers that popped up over the two days, tons of people toughed it out and enjoyed the awesome rides at the show. After checking out the vehicles, attendees could peruse the swap meet for truck parts, signs and lots of odds and ends.
The truck show had a lower number of registered vehicles, but quite a few of the more than 50 registrants were first timers. One of the vehicles that took home a Top 50 award was the beautiful red Ford F-1 truck owned by Aaron Boggs of Ohio. The truck was on display at the Jax Wax product display trailer. A few others who took home an award were Sherry and Chris Hudson as well as Sonny Talley.
The crew at the Moonshine Valley F-100 Show would like to thank O’Reilly Auto Parts and National Parts Depot for being the primary sponsors of these events. Thanks also goes out to the City of Maggie Valley for being such a great host city for all of the events produced by Surfboard Promotions that are held there in the months of June, July and September.
The 2021 Moonshine Valley F-100 show is already scheduled for July 16-17 in the same location, so be sure to mark your calendars for this awesome event. Now let’s check out the pics!
