On Saturday, July 19, Edgefield will host the first annual Cruise-In on the Square from 4 to 7 p.m. A Cruise-In is a group of car enthusiasts gathering at a designated location to park and show off their cars, talk car talk, and visit with other car buffs; the common interest being classic vehicles, cars, trucks, or motorcycles. This is a free event.
People with classic cars, trucks or motorcycles are invited to park on the square and enjoy the atmosphere of dozens of car enthusiasts. Spectators are welcome, but asked to park outside of the square area to make room for the Cruise In attendees. There will be a live broadcast from WKSX on the Square playing Oldies.
The Civic League will be selling spaghetti dinners as a fundraiser for their organization that evening. Pick up or take out a spaghetti dinner complete with salad, roll, dessert and beverage. Availability is limited, so buy tickets today at Edgefield Mercantile, First Citizens Bank or Tompkins Library. Park Row Market will be barbequing by the Square that evening as well as serving fresh sandwiches. Chef Bob’ Cafe will have an all-you-can-eat buffet and the Pool Room will be serving up their famous burgers and fries. There will be desserts and other treats available on the Square.
Carolina Moon Distillery located on the Square, will have a free tasting of one of their new products for anyone over 21 who stops in to their store. And the Turkey Shoppe will be open and, among other things, will be selling Yeti coolers and Costa del Mar sunglasses. On your way in or out of town, stop in at the Ole Edgefield Butcher Shop located across from McDonald’s on Hwy 25 and receive .50 off your entire steak purchase. And make sure to visit The Edgefield Advertiser along the square to have your picture taken (or we’ll come to your car for a photo of you and your vehicle for the paper).
