More than 2,000 visitors turned out to enjoy the second annual "Buggin' For A Cure" All-VW Car Show and Swap Meet held this past weekend at the Greene County Fairgrounds.

The event, which served as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, raised more than $17,600 for the cause, event organizers said.

More than 250 VW Beetles and other Volkswagen vehicles participated in this year's event, according to Joni Parker, spokesperson for the Northeast Tennessee Volkswagen Association.

"It was a fabulous weekend!" Parker said. "We were very pleased with the turnout.

"It was a community event for all - and a well-deserving cause," she added.

The event was hosted by the Northeast Tennessee Volkswagen Association, the Tourism Department of the Greene County Partnership, and the Greene County Fair Association.

In addition to loads of VW "bugs" crawling around the fairgrounds, the event also featured a stellar lineup of on-stage entertainment, food, VW vendors, and arts-and-crafts vendors.

Counts Kustoms' Scott Jones, who appears on the History Channel's "Counting Cars" television series, was also on hand both days of the event to meet and greet fans.

A special "Crank It Up" contest was also held, with Blayden Norton and his father, Bryan Norton, coming away as winners.

Several special awards were also presented to participating vehicles.

Among the headlining musical acts were Blue Mother Tupelo on Saturday evening and AnnaBelle's Curse on Sunday afternoon.

Other musical entertainment was provided by the Tennessee Borderline Bluegrass, Augusta Crawford, the Fabulous Fifties and Living Testament.

Several dance acts also performed, including the Country Girls Line Dancers, Dancers Unlimited, the Praise Cloggers, Steppin' Out Line Dancers, the LMH Cloggers, and Winter and Company Dance Studio.
