— The State Fairgrounds looked more like an auto park this weekend, as the 19th Annual International Auto show was in town.

Visitors got a chance to experience their dream cars, and the event featured new production models and concept cars. About six car, truck and sports utility manufacturers displayed their latest models.

One of the star attractions at the show was Robbie Knievel, who raced up a ramp and flew hundreds of feet in the air as the crowds cheered. Robbie is the son of legendary daredevil Evel Knievel.
