Darlington Car Hauler Parade on Thursday, Aug 31st

Join us on August 31, 2017, for the 13th Annual Darlington Car Hauler Parade and Festival! Come watch the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Teams make their way through cheering fans from the Florence Civic Center to Darlington Square and onto the track that's "Too Tough to Tame." There's plenty of FUN for the whole family!

The fun will begin at 4 p.m. at the Florence Civic Center with entertainment and live music. Kids play all afternoon for FREE on the KidsZone inflatable rides and games sponsored by SC Blue. The GameTruck will bring a wide selection of games for Xbox360, Wii and PS3, and can accommodate up to 16 players at one time!

There will be refreshments for purchase, and the proceeds from food served by Julia Belle's will support Camp Pee Dee Pride. Kids and adults alike will love the airbrush tattoos, even a semi-permanent logo of the track Too Tough to Tame!

Fans will enjoy the exciting silent auction full of great NASCAR items and race memorabilia. This year proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit Darlington Shares.

The main attraction, however, are the plentiful NASCAR transporters. Fans can make their way through a sea of NASCAR transporters and take pictures with their favorite team's hauler and driver, and even have a chance to ride in the big rig during the parade.

At 7 pm, the parade of NASCAR haulers will leave the Florence Civic Center and make the 12-mile drive to Darlington RaceFest on the Darlington Square, where there will be added entertainment, food, a car show and awesome fireworks display. The transporters will continue through Darlington until they reach the track Too Tough to Tame where they can begin preparation for the Bojangles Southern 500 race.

As if it could not get any better, admission to the Darlington Car Hauler Parade is free!
