28 — Mount Olive Pickle Festival Wednesday, April 26, 2017 CRUISIN' THROUGH: Wayne County Cruisers put on a show The Wayne County Cruisers will add some horsepower to Mount Olive this year, as the group holds its annual car show at the N.C. Pickle Festival April 29. The cruisers are a group of car enthusiasts who hold frequent shows throughout the county. It includes around 20 active members, said President Steven Thorne, and is open to anyone, even if they do not have a car they want to show off. "We just love cars," Thorne said. "It doesn't matter if you've got one, if you love cars like we do, come on out." The show this year will take place on Center Street in Mount Olive. Thorne said he expects between 100 and 200 cars to be there, which everyone can walk around a view free of charge. To enter the car show, you must first register with one of the show's coordina- tors. Thorne and the other coordinators will be found in front of the Wells Fargo bank on Center Street, he said. Registration is $20, and will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. After that, the judging begins. The show is what Thorne called "open class," which means that cars of all kinds are welcome to join the competition. Thorne said this is to give anyone who wants to enter a chance to win a prize. "It doesn't matter what you have, Remodeled, newly paint- ed, old and new cars will line Center Street during the 2017 N.C. Pickle Festival dur- ing the Wayne County Cruisers Car Show. Proceeds from the car show will go to the Kitty Askins Hospice Center. See CRUISIN' THROUGH, Page 29 The Wayne County Cruisers car show will raise money for the Kitty Askins Hospice Center during its annual car show at the N.C. Pickle Festival. OK, so we won't have jousting knights, lords and ladies or a castle at the North Carolina Pickle Festival, but we will have over 100 vendors including many arts and crafts vendors who will feature pickle artwork.
