Scott County's "Wings over Big South Fork" Airshow brought a boost to its struggling economy this weekend.
Organizers started the event eight years ago to stimulate the county's businesses and show people what they have to offer.
With Scott County's unemployment rate sitting just under 20%, organizers said this year's show was more important than ever.
"It's really good for Scott County. It brings in a lot of people," said local snow cone vendor Ciara Byrd.
Thousands camped out for the shows Saturday. The event featured jets, stunt planes, and military war birds. It expanded this year with the addition of a car show.
"It's definitely much larger than last year," said event organizer Brandon Hughett.
Organizers say they are grateful for the short-term boost to the economy, but also say it has long-term marketing advantages.
"This gives the community a way to show the world what we have to offer," said Hughett.
Officials hope the guests will like what they see and come back for more.
The show was free to the public.
