Wheels in the Valley

It's time to get registered for Fort Valley State University’s 2nd annual “Wheels in the Valley Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show.” The fun-filled family event takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 26 in FVSU’s Wildcat Stadium parking lot. Kids’ games, rides, prizes and entertainment are all a part of the day-long activities.

Vehicle owners from Middle Georgia and the southeast are invited to participate. Registration takes place from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The entry fee for pre registered cars, trucks and motorcycles is $20; additional vehicles, $10. The top vehicles will receive awards and specialty trophies. Register online at http://www.fvsu.edu/. Proceeds will benefit the Peach County Boys and Girls Club of the Georgia Heartlands and FVSU’s Challenge Fund for scholarships.

According to event co-chair Wallace Keese, FVSU’s director of Student Support Services, the first event drew car enthusiasts from all over the Southeast. “We had some owners come from Atlanta, and some from as far as Tennessee,” said Keese. “This is another event that connects the university with the surrounding community, and it’s family-oriented.”

Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are now available. The car show is free and open to the public. For more information, call (478) 825-6290.
