Waynesville was a hub of activity Saturday and Sunday with Freedom Fest on Saturday and the Cave State Cruisers Car Show on both days.

Freedom Fest was celebrated on the Square, while the car show filled Waynesville City Park the next block down.

Visitors to the Square were treated with live music from the 399th Army Band's Rough Riders, as well as plenty of food, activities and family fun.

Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman and Rep. Steve Lynch helped kick off the festivities on the Square Saturday morning and a video of this is available on the Daily Guide's Facebook page.

Also helping to start off the festivities was also local musician, Gerald Walling, who played the National Anthem on his trombone. Walling wandered the Square playing various tunes to the delight of event attendees. Video of one of Walling's performances is available on the Daily Guide's website.

The park was filled with car enthusiasts from all over. The Daily Guide visited with a Cave State Cruisers Car Club member, Mark Decker, who reported that about 150 entries in the show had been made at the time we spoke to him around noon on Saturday.

The car show was a popular spot in downtown Waynesville over the weekend and attendees were not disappointed with the vast array of classic and unique cars.
