About the DeLand Homecoming Car Show

The Atteberry family started hosting car shows at the DeLand Homecoming in 2006 after Larry Plotner retired from that role. He left some big shoes to fill, but great attendance year-after-year has resulted in successful events, even between rain showers from Hurricane Issac’s remnants in 2012.
