If the weather is nice, volunteer organizers expect up to 6,000 people who enjoy cars, music, an historic downtown setting and a friendly atmosphere.
The Oakboro Cruise-In & Burnout is in its eighth season, having begun in 2004.
If weather is pretty, cars start arriving after lunch. However, the official hours are 5-9:30 p.m. The burnout will occur at 9 p.m.
Food vendors and souvenir concessions will be set up. Restaurants and retail stores will be open. The public is encouraged to purchase 50/50 tickets. Proceeds go towards the operation and promotion of the event and help provide scholarships for local high school students.
The Cruise-In is held in downtown Oakboro on NC Hwy. 205 between Albemarle and Charlotte. It is one of the largest cruise-ins held in a small North Carolina downtown.
