Annual cruise-in car show to benefit Preston High band returns Aug. 4

TUNNELTON — The 19th Annual Ryan A. Rhodes Cruise-In will get under way at 2 p.m. Saturday Aug. 4.

The event goes on rain or shine, at the Perry W. Rhodes Farm, 2838 Campground Road, Tunnelton. Look for signs on W.Va. 26 south, coming from Kingwood, or 26 north, if coming from the Fellowsville area, to find the farm.

Ryan Rhodes was a 19-year-old Preston High student who died in an accident Aug. 1, 1999, while driving his 1968 Mustang. His family began the cruise-in to honor what he loved.
