Darlington Car Hauler Parade & Fest 2016

Presented by OneMain - Lending Made Personal

The Darlington Car Hauler Parade & Festival presented by OneMain returns on September 1st to the Florence Civic Center!

The fun ignites at 4pm at the Florence Race Festival, featuring entertainment and live music. Kids play all afternoon for FREE at the KidsZone.

Come hungry and enjoy the refreshments and foods!

Fans can bid at the exciting silent auction full of great NASCAR items and race memorabilia. Perhaps the most exhilarating items up for bid will be the chance to ride in a NASCAR big-rig through the parade!

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.

At 7 pm, the parade of NASCAR haulers 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, and fireworks. The transporters will continue through Darlington until they reach Darlington Raceway, the track that's "Too Tough to Tame" where they can begin preparation for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 race.
