January 2010 Cool Cruise-In

Come have dinner and show off your car. No, it's a bit too cold to do burnouts this time of year, but we still like to show off our cars and socialize.

We have a variety of restaurants - Cafe East, Hayfield's Steak & Seafood, Penny's and Wayside. The Art Shop, antique shops and others will be open late.

We've heard there is a possibility that members of the Carolinas Miata Car Club will come, but we haven't heard for sure. If so, bundle up with a warm jacket, some gloves, a hat and take a stroll up and down Main Street. Here's a pic I pulled off the Internet. Makes you feel a little warmer, yea? See you Friday night!

2010 Dates

The shiny cars, photo opportunities, friendly conversation and the burnout are what continue to pull people monthly to the Oakboro Cruise-In. The Stanly County event pulls in around 6,000 or so people and 500 cars if the weather is pretty.

The event is held on the fourth Friday of each month. Cars start arriving around 3 p.m., but it actually starts at 5 p.m. At 9 p.m., the Burnout is held, filling the streets with soft billowing smoke, tire squeals and cheers from the crowds.

The Burnout is held April through October, while the Cruise-In is a monthly event.

The 2010 dates are January 22, February 26, March 26, April 23, May 28, June 25, July 23, August 27, September 24, October 22 and November 26. There will not be a December event as it falls on Christmas Eve.
