For some folks “a car was made for one purpose, to get from one place to tha ‘nother.”
For others, something happens along the way. You fall in love with the car, or the engine, or the story of getting from that one place to another or the people riding with you. And, when that happens, the car becomes a classic.
Car enthusiasts from North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina and perhaps beyond will visit Henderson this weekend. On Saturday, July 31 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m., the second-ever Ruin Creek Cruise In will take place.
Admission is free for all.
Visit the car show that about 2,500 people showed up for in 2019.
It will take place across U.S. 158 Bypass from Charles Boyd Chevrolet Cadillac and is specifically at 284 US 158 Bypass if you’re putting it in your GPS.
The Ruin Creek Cruise In of Henderson is all about supporting the local Ruin Creek Animal Protection Society, according to Brandon Boyd.
Boyd and the society’s volunteers, organizers and supporters have a passion about “saving animals from right here in Henderson at the Vance County Animal Shelter.” Boyd said, “Krissie Newman, her non-profit The Rescue Ranch, is sponsoring this event this year. Krissie is going to be there…It’s just going to be a special, special weekend here in Henderson. We invite everybody to come out. It’s going to be local vendors from all across this area, food, drinks, live music, and a good time had by all.”
