No rain in Oakboro tonight!

Yes, there's a car show.
No, there's no rain!

Come bring your car and have some fun!

Around 8 p.m., we'll have a parade featuring two Mayberry squad cars - Otis, Ernst T, Howard and other members of the Mayberry Tribute Artists - along with the real Charlene.

That's right. Maggie Peterson is the actress who played the roll of Charlene Darlin', the gal with the crush on Sheriff Andy Taylor.

Bring your cameras! And, we're holding a fundraiser for the D.A.R.E. program in Montgomery County, where funds have been eliminated for this year. Oakboro's own Jeff Branch is the D.A.R.E. officer there and needs our support.

And be sure to buy a 50/50 ticket. You might go home with some green backs!

Getting Attention!

Behind the scenes ... Our event is run by a team of highly-dedicated volunteers, some of whom don't even live in Oakboro. But, they love this event. Lately, we've had a rash of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) experts visit our site and try to sell us services to increase the number of people coming to our page. Most of them come from India or somewhere off-shore. We've gotten so many of these people trying to sell us their services that we must be doing something right! Otherwise, how have more than 100 of them, find us?

Something else ... The 50/50 tickets help us send a local student to Stanly Community College to study in the automotive science program. So when you purchase tickets, you're contributing to a scholarship.
