Wings & Wheels is back in Gig Harbor this July and organizers say this popular family event will bring back the same fun as in previous years, and more.
Presented by USAA, the event includes a classic car show, jet car, vintage warbirds, live music and plenty of food.
The Hub at Gig Harbor, which opened last year to much acclaim, will be open and a big part of the festivities, with a special menu and a beer garden to top it off. Various other food and beverage vendors will be on site to fill in what the Hub does not provide.
In the past, the car show attracted more than 150 classic and custom cars. This year, room has been made to allow up to 250. Griot’s Garage has provided goodie bags for the first 150 entries. University Place Refuse has donated the use of a music stage, so there will be live music throughout the day.
