Corvette enthusiasts will gather for VetteFest 2015 in Meridian

In 1990, area Corvette enthusiasts created Valley Corvettes, an organization that trumpets it as “America’s only true sports car.” If you feel the same way (eat dust, Firebird owners), you’ll appreciate VetteFest 2015. Events take place July 22-25, but the biggie for the public is a “show ’n’ shine” July 23. Meridian’s Kleiner Park will open bright and early that day for gawking at tons of beautiful automobiles. Food vendors will offer lunch, and a barbecue is planned for 6:30 p.m.
