Cory Morrow's Go Wheels Up! Texas
Go Wheels Up! Texas is a high-energy, family-friendly celebration of music, automobiles, airplanes, and, of course, Texas cuisine. Created for spectators from all walks of life, the weekend features an auto show, air show, concert series and food festival designed to benefit charities, while also helping to grow the San Marcos Regional Airport into one of central Texas’ premier event destinations.
Weekend festivities begin Friday evening with a VIP & Sponsor kick-off, featuring Cory Morrow and a few of his closest friends. At the kickoff, attendees will have a chance to mingle with Cory and meet some of the extraordinary pilots performing throughout the weekend. The car show represents a menagerie of automobiles from classic American muscle to exotic Italian street machines. Onlookers can gawk at more than 200 breathtaking examples of automotive engineering, while the competitors vie for best-in-show awards.
Poison lead singer Bret Michaels will be the headline performer on Saturday evening.
A rally course and parade route will enable attendees to see and hear these works of art in motion. A 2-3 hour airshow will feature solo & team aerobatic performers, skydivers and a military jet demonstration team. Red Bull Air Race Champion, Kirby Chambliss and the Red Bull Air Force will perform both days, and additional performers include Adam Baker, Mike Gallaway, Greg Shelton, Kent Peitsch, Randy Ball, David Martin, the Shetterly Squadron and many others.
Throughout the weekend, attendees will be able to take airplane and helicopter rides, as well as flying state-of-the-art flight simulators. The grounds near the car show will feature a large collection of aircraft, ranging from WWII warbirds to today’s modern military might. The event also encourages corporate aviation, and a number of manufacturers, sales forces and operators have been invited to display the latest in private aviation technology and comfort.
Not to be overlooked is the culinary aspect of this event – Wheel’s Up! Texas features an enormous array of food trucks and vendors from across the region showcasing flavors that call central Texas home. Craft beer, Texas craft whiskey, wine and other spirits will be available for patrons at numerous bars and food courts located throughout the event grounds. The main stage heats up with performances by Morrow, Red-Dirt Giant and other national artists. The following morning will kick off with some of the area’s most talented spiritual artists raising the roof at the Sunday Gospel Brunch. Both the air show and car show continue all throughout the weekend.
