Priceville Cruise-In Car Show draws large crowd

Priceville’s 16th annual Cruise-In Car Show Saturday night attracted 384 entries and an attendance that Mayor Melvin Duran termed “one of our biggest ever.”

“The weather turned out to be perfect,” Duran said. “Cloudy skies and a threat of rain earlier in the day made that seem improbable. It probably kept a few car owners away but it didn’t affect the number of families that came out to enjoy the show.”

Ron Deweese, who helped manage the gate, said 384 antique and classic cars were admitted to the park. The number reached 470 in 2012.

In addition to a all makes and models of restored cars, the show offered two hours of entertainment by Natchez Trace, inflatable rides for kids and a large number of food and merchandise vendors.

Car show owners were eligible for a wide variety of door prizes, including a rebuilt engine, cash, gift certificates and merchandise.

“This is our big event of the year for the people of Priceville,” Duran said. “A big part of the proceeds from car entries goes to parks and recreation activities. It also gives our merchants, schools, churches and community organizations the opportunity to set up booths to promote their merchandise, services and programs.”

“It takes a lot of work to plan and put on the show and we couldn’t do it without the generosity of our volunteers and business sponsors,” he added. “We deeply appreciate their support.”
