Back in the 1950s, teens used the family car and burned a dollar's worth of gas (or less) while driving around the Courtsquare, out US321 to Scronce's Grill, back to the Courtsquare and  up and down East Main Street, out to It's or Triple H Plaza. It was cruisin'--and it happened every Saturday night.

Cruisin' returns to downtown Lincolnton this Saturday night from 5 - 10 PM. It's the annual Cruisin' for a Cause. The event was started in 2011 and each year since it has raised money for four local charities--Hesed House of Hope (the local homeless shelter); the Lincoln County Coalition Against Domestic Violence; the Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse and Child Advocacy Center; and the Lincolnton Relay for Life (the annual fundraiser for the research efforts of the American Cancer Society).

Those who want to cruise Main Street & the Courtsquare will pay $5 for the privilege, while those who want to park their vehicles and--especially if they own a classic car or truck--show them off while enjoying the party will pay $15.

Food trucks and an ice cream truck will have food and beverages for sale and music will be played to bring back the atmosphere of those days of yesteryear when cars weren't air conditioned and AM radios blared old time rock & roll from stations like WLS in Chicago, WOWO in Ft. Wayne, or WABC in New York when the signal was good...or a little later from 8-track tapes or still later from cassettes.

If it sounds like fun, come take a trip down Memory Lane Saturday night for this year's ninth annual Cruisin' for a Cause.
