MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A giant, inflatable space shuttle slide and extra awards at the car show will be new this year at June Jubilee as the annual event celebrates its 20th anniversary, Chairman Ted Morgan said.

About 8,000 people came to last year's June Jubilee, and Morgan expects just as large of a crowd again if the weather is good.

The car show, which features antiques, street rods and custom cars and includes trucks and motorcycles, is a big attraction at the annual event at War Memorial Park, Morgan said.

About 150 vehicles are entered in this year's show. Vehicles must be from 1979 or older.

Approximately 30 arts and crafts vendors from the Quad-State area will be displaying their wares.

Live music will be performed in the afternoon by Shane Douglas & The Moneymakers, who will perform the best of a variety of genres at noon and 2 p.m., and South Mountain String Band, which will play mostly bluegrass at 1 and 3 p.m., Morgan said.


John Swomley will perform magic and make balloon animals at 1 p.m., and Ronald McDonald will put on a stage show at 2 p.m.

For $5, kids can ride all day, including riding miniature horses and a miniature train, jumping in a Moonbounce and going down the shuttle slide. There also will be face painting.

Food for sale will include Italian sausages, chicken tenders, funnel cakes and homemade ice cream.
