BLUFFTON — Bluffton’s Main Street will be lined with pieces of history today as the annual Bluffton Festival of Wheels event begins. The car show opens at 2 p.m. and features vintage and classic cars, trucks and tractors.

Entries are welcome until 2 p.m., with registration $12 per car. Judging begins at 5 p.m. and awards given out at 7:30 p.m.

“Last year we had over 200 vehicles,” said Dan Diller, event chairman.

The annual event, now going on 51 years, is a festival for the entire community.

“I wanted the kids to get involved so we’re getting a bouncy house car and a cotton candy machine,” said Diller.

There will be food, homemade ice cream, lemonade and sandwiches.

“Shirley’s Popcorn will have a bunch of stuff out, too,” said Diller.

The festival ends with a cruise down South Main Street at 8 p.m.

The Presbyterian Church, located on Main Street, will be showing a outdoor movie between 8:30 and 9 p.m.

“It’s a full day of fun, food and entertainment,” said Diller.

All donations will go for scholarships and to the library. Scholarships are given to students at Bluffton, Pandora and Cory Rawson schools.

“We try to give back to the community. That’s a big thing,” said Diller.
