Let’s Cruise Main Street

In the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s, teenagers from all over came to Mullins to “cruise” Main Street from Butch’s (now Imperial Motel) to Hardee’s (now Donnie Gerald Auto Sales) or the old Dairyette. Every Friday night through Sunday evening you were sure to see all your friends along the way.
Wow!! How great it was to live in that era. Well, it is time to “Cruise Main” once again and with help from local sponsors, we are going to make it happen.
Bring out that classic car or what you drive now, clean it up, put your favorite person in the passenger seat and have a night out in Mullins.
