Schmidt GOODRICH — The annual Good Times in Goodrich festival once again surpassed everyone’s expectations, pulling in over 5,000 visitors who enjoyed the rumble of more than 200 classic cars and trucks, delicious food, talented musicians, tons of fun in the Kid’s Zone and many crafters and artisans.

People also paid their respects and honor to Prisoner of War and Missing in Action soldiers listed on the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall. A charity motorcycle ride raised money for a local family whose son has had a Traumatic Brain Injury.

One of the event planners, Jim Green stated, “We already started planning for next year’s event and we will continue to grow. We look forward to seeing new faces and volunteers at our next planning meeting.” Those interested in helping with the event can contact the planners at the event site: goodrichfestival.com.
