Athens on the Square 1st Annual Car Show
The First Annual Athens on the Square Car Show was outstanding! There were 472 vehicles registered at the event. If the weather had been pretty, there would have been over 500 vehicles. For the first year that is outstanding. The Limestone County Parks and Recreation Committee are to be commended for this huge event that brought thousands to downtown Athens April 26th. For more information visit www.carsonthesquare.com. Next year there should be 1,000 vehicles. Mark your calendar for April 2009!
