The Kirbyville Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Cruisin’ Kirbyville will make its return next month after taking the year off last year, and has promised to be bigger and better than ever before.
The car, truck and bike show will kick off Friday, July 20 and go through Saturday July 21 and will be held at the Kirbyville Magnolia Park. Cruisin’ Kirbyville is an open car show, which means entries are not limited to classic cars.
Friday night will be hospitality night for all whom pre-register into the event and will be complete with a fireworks display, live entertainment, food and fun. While Saturday, the actual show will get underway.
“The show will feature cars, trucks and bikes, a pair of monster trucks that will be crushing cars in the field across from the Magnolia Park, food vendors, arts and crafts, games, jailhouse lockup, live auctions, door prizes, a television show from Louisiana, custom T-shirts and much more,” explains an organizer, Ben Cline.
And of course, Cruisin’ Kirbyville wouldn’t be complete without the infamous “burnout competition,” which will take place Saturday.
Anyone may compete in the burnout competition, but in order to be eligible for the awards, you must be registered in the show.
According to local business owners, Cruisin’ Kirbyville brings more money into the city than any other event that takes place throughout the year, which is good news for the local economy. While Police Chief Paul Brister says his department will have extra officers on duty during the event to ensure the safety of the citizens.
Additionally, the Best of Show from Cruisin’ Kirbyville’s last car show will make its return in hopes of capturing the title again. Other cars that will be appearing in this years car show include a 2000 burnt orange Chevy Camero Super Sport, which belongs to Andrew Billingsley, a 1978 white Buick Regal, which belongs to Philip Jacks and a 1971 blue Chevy Nova, which belongs to Aubrey Jacks.
Cost for pre-registration for Cruisin’ Kirbyville will be $25 and $30 the day of the show. For more information or to pre-register your car, truck or bike, contact Ben Cline at 409-201-4191 or the Kirbyville Chamber of Commerce at 423-5827.
