Darlington Car Hauler Parade

11th Annual Parade & Festival

The Darlington Car Hauler Parade & Festival returns on September 3rd to the Florence Civic Center!

The fun ignites at 4 pm at the Florence Race Festival, featuring entertainment and live music.  Kids play all afternoon for FREE on the KidsZone inflatable rides, games, and bounce houses.  Kids and adults alike will love the airbrush tattoos, even a semi-permanent logo of Darlington Raceway.

Fans will enjoy 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 where they can begin preparation for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 race.
