BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The National Corvette Museum is gearing up for one of the biggest events in five years.
This week marks the 20th anniversary of the museum opening and caravans full of around 5,000 Corvettes are already on their way to Bowling Green. One of those groups started in Alaska, picking up people from British Columbia, and Washington State before making it to Bowling Green.
Around 8,000 are expected at the event starting Wednesday.
"We should be proud as the home of the Corvette in Bowling Green. As frustrating as the traffic and parking issues are going to be, we need to be thankful because these people bring a lot of money to our community. No where else can claim to be the home of the Corvette," said National Corvette Museum Communications Manager, Katie Frassinelli.
This weekend also marks a very important meeting at the museum. The board of directors will make the final decision on the fate of the sinkhole Saturday morning. Officials said at this point the decision of what to do could go either way.
