For car owners and aficionados alike, the 43rd annual Daytona Turkey Run was the place to be this past weekend. The car show is the “largest combined car show and swap meet in the United States,” according to its website. Held at Daytona’s International Speedway on Nov. 24-27, the 2.5-mile stretch was covered with cars, parts, vendors, and even a play area for kids.
People flocked from all over the U.S. to admire cars and bring their classic, muscle, and race cars and trucks to show off. More than 6,500 automobiles made their debut over the four-day run, and 2,500 were registered on the swap lot – a place where owners go in hopes of trading ideas, parts, and even entire cars.
More than 100,000 attendees roamed the grounds of the speedway, “just looking” at unique and priceless cars, while others decided if the price was right and took home a brand new ride.
Gainesville in December completed a social justice art mural project. Out of 37 applications, 12 artists were chosen for the project. The two-sided art panels were posted up in five different parks throughout the city.
