Festival and Parade
Wanna see big trucks, enjoy live
entertainment, food and fireworks, and get autographs from NASCAR
hauler drivers? YES, then you should check out the 11th Annual
Darlington Car Hauler Parade and Festival on September 3rd!
The fun ignites at the Florence
Civic Center at 4pm with entertainment and live music!
Kids play all afternoon for free on the KidsZone inflatable rides, games
and more! Fans can engage in an exciting silent auction full
of great NASCAR items and memorabilia.
Take a peek at select NASCAR show cars, compete against the
crowd with remote control slot-car racing and be sure to get your
complimentary custom air-brush NASCAR tatoos & face
painting. This year the NASCAR Next 9 team will be on
hand for an autograph and Q&A session. Check out the Fitness World Zumba Blast
stage for live music and entertainment by Painted Man Band.
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 teams' hauler and driver,
and even get autographs! The big-rigs are expected to begin
rolling in around 4pm. A number of drivers will offer
"ride-alongs" to the track, which will go to the highest bidders in
the Silent Auction.
Also, watch your favorite team compete in the Pilot Flying J
Truck Driving Challenge, held in the Civic Center parking
At 7pm, the parade of NASCAR haulers will leave the Florence Civic
Center and make the 12-mile drive to Darlington Square where the
anticipating crowd celebrates with added live entertainment
and the festivities of RaceFest. There you can enjoy
vendors, music, car show, fireworks display and more! The
haulers will continue their journey onto the track "Too Tough to Tame",
where they can begin preparation for the weekend races.
As if it couldn't get any better, admission to the Darlington Car
Hauler Parade is free!
Proceeds from the silent auction and food sales from Fatz
will benefit the Special Olympics.
