Cruise up to Salem for a celebration of cars
Posted 9/29/2011 2:03:00 PM
For folks like me, a car is what gets you down the highway or the red clay road to your next adventure. For other folks, like those in the pretty little Upcountry
town of Salem
, cars are a reason to party. That’s exactly what they’ll be doing next Saturday afternoon, and they’re inviting the world to come party with them.
Saturday, Oct. 8, will be the first big cruise-in since the town’s Fourth of July celebration, which drew about 1,400 people. That kind of success got townsfolk thinking they needed to give the cruise-in its own night and open the event to any kind of vehicle. And that’s what they’ve done.
Anyone interested in joining the fun should call Salem Town Hall at (864) 944-2819 to register their vehicle. There is no fee to enter. And they’ll be music for dancing and plenty of food being served up over at the fire department, too
If You’re Going:
The Main Street Salem Cruise-In is from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 8. Salem is in the northeast corner of Oconee County
, just off S.C. 11. Folks say Salem is the gateway to Lakes Jocassee and Keowee.
