Darlington Car Hauler Parade

11th Annual Parade & Festival

The Darlington Car Hauler Parade & Festival presented by OneMain Financial returns on September 3rd 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 on the KidsZone inflatable rides, games, bounce houses and bungee jump. Plus see special attractions like a fire breather, juggler, show cars, video GameTruck, and a special appearance by Darth Vader’s 501st Legion.

Come hungry and enjoy the refreshments plus foods served by Julia Bell's with proceeds to benefit Camp Pee Dee Pride.

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

Rock My Soul Tour

Featuring Fairfield Four and The McCrary Sisters

Get ready to revive your spirit and raise the roof at this dynamic gospel celebration. National Heritage Fellowship honorees, Nashville’s own Fairfield Four will sing classic gospel tunes like “Roll, Jordan, Roll,” “Standing in the Safety Zone” and “Lonesome Valley,” as featured in the hit movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? Daughters of former Fairfield Four tenor Rev. Sam McCrary, The McCrary Sisters will bring their soul-stirring modern gospel sounds, with a mix of enduring tunes like “I John,” “Don’t Let Nobody Turn You Around” and their bluesy version of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

Singing in the traditional African American a cappella gospel style that they have been known for since the group’s inception almost 100 years ago, The Fairfield Four continue to perform original, tightly harmonized pieces and traditional favorites. Teaming up with The McCrary Sisters—frequent Bob Dylan collaborators and the daughters of Fairfield’s late leader—the two virtuosic groups show how the spirit-stirring sounds of gospel sparked the rock and R&B revolution.

…a cappella fireworks.  -Michael McCall, Associated Press

… stirring a cappella gospel music that has never wavered from its center.  -Andrew Greenhalgh, Soul-Audio CD review

But suddenly we got The Fairfield Four and The McCrary Sisters singing together in a row, with a range like an organ and sonic energy like a helicopter taking off... a stunning, core-shuddering sound that kept me dabbing my eyes.  -Craig Havighurst, Bluegrass Situation - review of "Rock My Soul"
