MULLINS, S.C. – The Third Annual Let’s Cruise Main Street returned to Mullins two weeks ago as a throwback to the decades of cars cruising the strip from Butch’s (now Imperial Motel) to Hardee's (now Donnie Gerald Auto Sales).

More than 70 classic cars and trucks rolled through town for a full day of activities that included a parade, car show, food, vendors and entertainment.

The night closed with musical performances from Hip Pocket Band and Blackwater Band.

Mullins Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Coleman Rogers said the event continues to grow.

“This year we had two bands instead of just one along with so many food vendors,” Rogers said. “We hoped everybody enjoyed downtown Mullins, celebrated our town and our people.”

Rogers said the band area was full when the night ended.

“We will do this one again next June, and in the fall we will put something else together, but we love the cruise theme,” she said.

Mullins Mayor William “Bo” McMillan said it’s important to bring the community together for a good time.

“What an amazing evening it was for all of us associated with Let’s Cruise Main Street,” he said. “Thanks to each and everyone who made this event so very successful.”
