BELINGTON -

The Red Line Customz Car Show is the unofficial kickoff of the Barbour County Fair which has a week full of events coming up.

"Monday night starts the grand feature parade, which is the big kickoff of our fair. Tuesday night is the derby. Wednesday we start having our Nashville acts and entertainment as well as a bull rodeo on Wednesday night," said Ricky Hymes, board of directors member.

Hymes said the fair brings a lot of people into Barbour County.

"This fair is probably in the top five in the state as far as size, the ground that we have, and the people that attend. And this is a very safe fair; we have a lot of security here," Hymes said.

On Sunday, the Red Line Customz Car Club car show brought many people to come and see a wide range of classic cars.

"This is open to any year, make, or model. We invite motorcycles, trucks, and cars. I think we have some that are early 1900's, to current day," said Jedd Schola, with Red Line Customz Car Club.

There were about 70 cars in the show that has been a tradition for the fair for the last 15 years.

Bridgett Booth was the 2012 Barbour County Fair Queen. She was at the car show on Sunday as one of her last official appearances. Booth said she has mixed feelings about giving up the crown.

"I want to give another young woman a chance to get to experience what I've experienced. This is a memory that I will never forget. I am sad because I love being that role model for the younger kids, but I'm also glad because someone else can experience that," said Booth, who is from Belington.

The fair lasts until Aug. 31.
