Phil Marsh is the man behind the scenes in downtown Mount Airy. Phil served as the President of the Mount Airy Downtown Business Association and as a board member of Mount Airy Downtown, Inc., for five years. If you ever need someone who will roll up their sleeves and do the necessary hard work, Phil is your guy. He started, and still coordinates, the Mayberry Cool Cars & Rods Cruise-In events which have grown to attract thousands of people to downtown. On cruise-in days, Phil volunteers for a twelve-hour shift with a smile on his face. He organizes the Independence Day Parade and the Christmas Parade, and is always the first one to arrive to line up cars and floats at the crack of dawn. Every downtown would be lucky to have a person like Phil Marsh, Mount Airy Downtown, Inc.’s, 2019 North Carolina Main Street Champion.
