 NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW (NAIAS)
 CELEBRITY WEEKEND KICKS OFF WITH PRIESTLEY, GARTH APPEARANCES
 DETROIT, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Jason Priestley and Jennie Garth of Fox Television's hit show, "Beverly Hills, 90210," will make a public appearance in Detroit as part of the North American International Auto Show's (NAIAS) Celebrity Weekend, Jan. 11 and 12.
 Priestley's and Garth's appearance will be part of a fashion show which will be conducted at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday, Jan. 11, beginning at 11 a.m. The event is jointly produced by Twelve Oaks Mall, WKBD-TV, WHYT-FM, and the Detroit Auto Dealers Association, organizers of the NAIAS. Opening day tickets for the NAIAS will be good for both the auto show and the fashion show event.
 "While we are proud of the increasingly international stature of our show, we never want to lose sight of the local flavor of the event," said Gordon Stewart, co-chairman of the NAIAS. "We want our show to be fun for everybody; Jason Priestley and Jennie Garth will certainly add to the excitement and glamour of our show."
 In "Beverly Hills, 90210," the Canadian-born Priestley stars as Brandon Walsh, the somewhat naive West Beverly High transfer student from Minneapolis. Garth, from Champaign, Ill., stars as Kelly, the young and beautiful Beverly Hills socialite. The one-hour drama is quickly becoming one of television's newest phenomenons with its contemporary, realistic and honest storylines, capturing the serious and lighter sides of teenage life.
 During Celebrity Weekend, the opening Saturday and Sunday of the NAIAS, a wide array of Motor City celebrities will show their hometown pride and meet and greet fans at the show. A number of other national celebrities, including Robert Urich and Miss America, will also be present to kick off the international automotive event.
 Early commitments to appear during Celebrity Weekend include Joe Dumars, Isiah Thomas, Darrell Walker, Orlando Woolridge, Troy Crowder, Kevin Miller, Alan Trammel, Milt Wilcox, Willie Horton, Johnny Miller, Wayne Levi, Geoff Bodine, Bill Elliott and Carroll Shelby.
