Members of Corvette clubs from across Kentucky and beyond will descend on Danville’s Wilderness Trail Distillery on Saturday, May 21, for a day of food, music and door prizes at the James Baker and Cathy Fosson Memorial Corvette Cruise-In.
Bring an appetite if you come. They’ll have food vendors, including kettlecorn and ice cream. Captain Frank’s will offer hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken strips. Hill Of Beans BBQ has barbecue. B-Jack’s Seafood Shack has the seafood covered. Hoggy’s Ice Cream and Poppin J’s kettlecorn will provide desserts. A DJ will keep the party hopping and announce door prize winners.
And if you are a Corvette enthusiast, you’ll be excited to hear that Ken Lingenfelter of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering will be signing posters and sharing stories. The National Corvette Museum Store and Insurance will also be vendors. The Kentucky State Police will display their tricked out truck. Detail Lex will have products to keep the Corvettes shining. Somernites Cruise will have opportunities to win a pickup truck.
Last year’s Corvette cruise-in attracted 216 Corvettes from Kentucky’s 17 clubs and interested individuals.
The event honored James Baker, who was the father of Shane Baker, Wilderness Trail Distillery’s co-owner and master distiller. He passed Dec. 30, 2021, and the family suggests the memorial donations may be made to Salvation Army. Cathy Fosson was a much loved member of the Bluegrass Corvette Club, which is helping sponsor the event. Her family suggests donations be made to Willow Cree Sanctuary, a no-kill animal refuge.
