The Event

Join us in 2018 for the 14th Annual Darlington Car Hauler Parade and Festival! Come to watch the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Teams make their way through cheering fans from the Florence Civic Center to the Darlington Square and into the track that’s “Too Tough to Tame.” There is plenty of FUN for the whole family.

The fun begins at the Florence Civic Center with entertainment and live music. Kids play FREE on the KidsZone inflatable ride and games sponsored by SC Blue. The GameTruck will bring a wide selection of games for Xbox360, Wii and PS3 and can accommodate up to 16 players at one time.

There will be refreshments for purchase and the proceeds from food served by Julia Belle’s will support Camp Pee Dee Pride. Kids and adult alike will love the airbrush tattoos, even a semi-permanent logo of the track Too Tough to Tame.

Fans will enjoy the exciting silent auction full of great NASCAR items and race memorabilia. Proceeds benefit local charities.

The main attraction, however, are the plentiful NASCAR transporters. Fans can make their way through a sea of transporters and take pictures with their favorite team’s hauler and driver and even have a chance to ride in the big rig during the parade.

At 7pm the parade of NASCAR haulers leave the Florence Civic Center and make the 12-mile trek to RaceFest on the Darlington Square where there will be more entertainment, food, a car show and an awesome fireworks display. The transports will continue through Darlington until they reach the track “Too Tough to Tame” where they can park, unload and begin preparation for the Bojangles Southern 500 race.
