Season Opening Gets a Soaking!

Someone should write a song just for times like tonight .... "Rain On and Off Again." But that's the way April is here. Hot one day. Chily the next. Pretty and dry - or wet.

We hope you'll plan to join us on May 27 - and have a safe and enjoyable Easter 2011!

April 22, 2011 Starts Burnout Season at the Oakboro Cruise-In

The Oakboro Cruise-In & Burnout will be held on Friday, April 22.

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.
