BOWLING GREEN, KY (WAVE) – Thousands of Corvettes have made their way to Bowling Green.

This weekend, the National Corvette Museum is celebrating 20 years. Nearly 5,000 Corvettes are registered for the caravan. Corvette enthusiasts come from all over the world.

Since Thursday, more than 10,000 people have visited the museum. That's more than double the caravan attendance just five years ago.

What is also bringing in the crowds this year is the curiosity to see the sinkhole that swallowed eight cars back in February.

Last week, a museum spokeswoman said the facility will keep a 25-by-45-foot section that's about 30 feet deep with a bridge over it as a tourist attraction, but that decision is now up in the air.

The museum board will announce its final decision Saturday. Either a portion will be saved or the sinkhole will be filled. The board would prefer not to fill it, but cost issues and other concerns have arisen. 

The February sinkhole caused more than $1 million in damage to the cars, which were eventually pulled out of the hole.
