2009 Season Heats Up: 400+ cars, 8,000+ people

Oh, my gosh. Coming into Oakboro traffic was backed up all the way to the school. And it took 15 or so minutes to get from there to downtown. By 1:30 p.m., streets were already crowded with parked cars.

Organizers estimate this was the second largest crowd ever, with around 8,000 people and 400 or so cars. They were everywhere - and many had never been to the Oakboro Cruise-in before. We checked out the new restaurant, Boomers. Hamburgers were big and tasty. Loved the home fries.

One lucky person took home $98 in cash from the 50/50. Sometimes a dollar ticket can really pay off! .... And wouldn't you know it - this would be the night my camera batteries died!

Had a great time. Trying to find out who the great band was playing there on 4/24...?
