A Cool August Weekend in Bath County

by Casey | Posted on July 17th, 2012

Escape the heat of August with a weekend in Virginia’s cool Allegheny Mountains. August 4 is the 4th annual Wings and Wheels Car and Acrobatic Air Show in Hot Springs, Virginia.

Wings & Wheels logoThe Ingalls Field Airport will host a display of cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors – all competing for the coveted Peoples’ Choice Award. In addition, airplane rides and two flight simulators put you in the cockpit while flying lawnmowers and aerial acrobat performances thrill the crowd. Bring a chair, kick back and relax with the music of Daryn Burkholder (country), The Announcers (gospel) and Moonshine Express (country). Food will be available, as will children’s activities.

All day admission to Wings and Wheels is affordable at $5 per car or $10 per van or bus.

Perhaps planes and automobiles aren’t your thing, or maybe it’s the country and gospel music that doesn’t suit your taste. If that’s you, turn to Garth Newel Music Center for Viola Extravaganza! on August 4 at 5 pm. Enjoy the compositions of Mozart, Granados, Lavenda, and Bach performed by six talented musicians.
