Kids Can Touch a Truck at Cary's Car and Motorcycle Show
If your kids like car, trucks and motorcycles, head to the "Wheels on Academy" show from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. this Saturday on the streets of downtown Cary. Admission and parking are free, and you'll find all kinds of vehicles, from antiques to custom rods, as well as a kids area and food vendor kiosks. It's Cary's first car and motorcycle show, and this family-friendly exhibit offers fun for all ages.
The "Touch the Truck" area invites kids, and the young and heart, to touch fire trucks, police cars, army trucks and other vehicles. You'll also find live music from local bands and entertainers on stage all day, including The Daddy O's Lizzie O Band, CityFolk, Coastal Vision. And for a new spin on art, check out the Artist MarketCar Show to view art that revolves around cars or motorcycles, including some creations that use vehicle parts. In Art Car Alley, Artist Alan Stewart will turn a regular car into something extraordinary, and you can assist in creating Cary's first Art Car.
Due to the show, the Town of Cary will close S. Academy Street from Chatham Street to Dry Avenue as well as East Park Street from S. Academy Street to S. Walker Street from 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on March 24.. Although vehicles will not have access to these streets, the downtown Cary Library will remain open.
