Special features include the Horse Power Hall of Fame, Dan Webb’s Golden Submarine, Eugene Pringle’s Harley-Davidson “Liberty” bike display, a 1941 Chevy with WWII ration stickers still attached, and Dale’s Auto Antique Panel Van.

The following vendors are currently scheduled to participate: Strong Arm Customs, Hogs in Ministry, Christian Motorcycle Association, American Bikers Aiming Toward Education, Daytona Beach Sunglasses, Trikes of Oxford, Leather Works, Marge’s Custom Sewing, Weaver Clothing, Light it Up LED, Thunder on the Grand, Bikes and Bands, Bikes on the Bricks, T-Rods Custom Car Care, Genesee Area Skill Center, All Around Sounds, Auto Zone Hobbies, FND Clothing, Total Mayhem, Dort Federal Credit Union, DVA Ambulance, Gotcha Covered, Classic Gas Pumps, and Purses by Jen.
