BECKLEY -

It was another successful year at the 2013 Friends of Coal Auto Fair.

It was the 10 year anniversary for the event.

Leaders say they had nearly 550 antique, new, and tuner cars participate in the car show at the Paul Cline Youth Sports Complex in Beckley.

But the car show wasn't the only thing happening at the Auto Fair.

West Virginia band, The Davidson Brother's Band, along with country music star Travis Tritt took to the stage, Saturday night.

While the official count has not been released, organizers say they're pleased with this year's turnout.

All of the money raised during the Auto Fair goes to fund the Paul Cline Youth Sports Complex along with activities sponsored by the YMCA of Southern West Virginia.
