300 Corvettes at Columbia Supermart today, Wed. Aug. 27, 2014

Huge car show will take place from 10am-1pmCT, with Walmart donating ALL of proceeds from outside concessions set up especially for event going to Lexington, KY, children's hospital.

Columbia Super Walmart, 2988 Burkesville Road, Columbia, KY, is preparing for some 300 Corvettes some of which are already trickling onto half of the space on the grounds for a big car show, from now until around 1pmCT, today, according to Columbia Walmart manager Drew Mitchell. The cars are driven by the Carolina/Virginia Corvette Club.

Carolina/Virginia Corvette Members left Sevierville, TN, this morning. The stopover comes before the group leaves Columbia for the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. Mitchell said that the local Walmart store will set up concession stands with all the food and beverages supplied by the store, and the gross proceeds will all be given to the Walmart Children's Miracle Foundation, designated for the Children's Hospital in Lexington, KY. The Corvette Show area is roped off, Mitchell said. The Columbia Super Walmart is located in the Holladay Place shopping center. - CM

There was quite a long delay
for other traffic as some 300 Corvettes rolled out of Walmart Shopping Center at around 1pmCT. Nobody seem to mind, as the parade passed as in a private review. Adair County Sheriff Harrison Moss held other traffic for several light cycles to allow the visitors from the NC/VA Corvette Club to go through the signal non-stop, headed for the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. It is believed to have been the largest number of Corvettes ever in Adair County at one time.

That's director/producer/chief videographer B.J. Bray cool in dark shades on a hot Thursday, September who produced a hit YouTube 10 minute video with his cell phone showing a Multitude of Vettes hitting the road the Columbia Walmart parking lot following a fundraiser. It's not reached the viral numbers of the Full Court Buzzer Beater (Chase Spreen) Lindsey Wilson College vs. Georgetown - at 1,586,336 this morning at 5:38amCT - but that video has over had some 31 months more time online. But Multitude of Vettes now stands, this morning at 5:38amCT at a really strong 2 day total of 236 views. It's also embedded in TODAY, Saturday with CM, August 30, 2014 . - CM
