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!
