The weather couldn’t stop people from coming out and enjoying the inaugural Drive-In and Deals in Middlesboro over the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday at the Middlesboro City Parking Lot, A2Z Automotive, along with Middlesboro Main Street, Bell County Tourism, and Southern Girls Events, hosted the first ever event despite the heat and summer rain that moved through.

The festivities began at noon on Saturday and lasted until 8 p.m. just before Cars 3 was shown at the Levitt Lot.

“Emily came to me and asked if I could help get a car show together,” the organizer of the event Brance Combs explained. “We talked and ran a few ideas around and brainstormed trying to figure out what we could do that would try to give our hometown a little something to look forward to.”

Combs explained he wants to give people something to do in their hometown.

“I want to give people something to do to where me and my family can go out and enjoy a good time,” he said. “Even if I’m not the one directly doing it, I would just like to make Middlesboro a better place to live.”
