The FEI Equestrian World Games are coming to Western North Carolina in September of 2018 (9/11 – 9/23). This is expected to bring an enormous amount of people into the tiny community of Mill Spring, North Carolina which typically has a population of less than 5,000 people. During the games the total spectators present are expected to exceed 50,000 people per day. That is a lot of people! Will Mill Spring and the surrounding communities be able to handle this sudden population explosion? Absolutely! The area has had plenty of time to prepare for this event and if there is one thing North Carolinians excel at, it is being hospitable. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be some challenges during the event. However, in the rural areas of Western North Carolina, people get things done. There is the obvious issue of people getting to the event from the local airports (GSP, AVL, or CLT) and then getting around once they are at the event. That is where the Van in Black is here to help! While we are certain there will be plenty of other transportation services available in the area, including the popular ridesharing applications, very few will be able to handle groups of six or more in a single vehicle including all their luggage. This is not the case with the Van in Black. The Van in Black is big! It is also one of the few transportation companies that is authorized to work at all of the local airports in addition to crossing state lines. So whatever your needs are; whether it is a shuttle from GSP to Mill Creek, a sightseeing tour of the local sights, or just basic transportation around the equestrian center, the Van in Black is here to handle all your transportation needs. Just call the toll-free number listed at the top of this page and someone will coordinate service with you.

It is a huge economic boom for the state having almost a 2 billion dollar impact on the economy and supporting over 10,000 jobs. While all of this sounds … Full Story
