Wheels on Williams is back

The Gulf County Chamber of Commerce hosted the first Wheels on Williams event of the year lThursday, and organizers said it was likely their largest turnout to date.

The series, a reoccurring car show and food truck event which took place in downtown Port St. Joe every third Thursday of the month from April through July, was started last year.

Bringing in car aficionados from surrounding areas, the event has been a huge success, said Joe Whitmer, the director of the Chamber of Commerce.

“I think that is the best Wheels on Williams that we’ve had so far. I know that the Forgotten Coast Cruisers added a lot to the opening of this series, and I think they’ll come back,” he said.

The Forgotten Coast Cruisers, a group of car enthusiasts based in Apalachicola, brought about a dozen vehicles to the event, along with several other locals.

“We had great music and a great crowd, and I’m excited to see what’s to come for the series,” Whitmer continued.

The event featured barbecue supplied by Lowry B’s food truck, and live music was performed by Dirty Little Billy.

The next Wheels on Williams is scheduled for May 18.
