Check out these car shows taking place in Georgia and South Carolina.

For auto aficionados, the rubber meets the road at car shows. Fans of all ages get their motors running at these type of events. Although most car shows take place during warmer months, we found several starting their engines in late fall.

Consider the following taking place in Georgia and South Carolina.

Georgia

Braselton Bash

On November 19, YearOne, a retailer specializing in classic muscle car parts, hosts the Braselton Bash as part of Christmas in Braselton.

The event collects unwrapped toys for needy children in the area. Show participants compete for prizes while tots score playtime in the complimentary Kids Area. A burnout exhibition finds tires smoking in the parking lot.

Speaking of smoke, Stonewall’s BBQ will shill smoky meats, and the Braselton Woman’s Club sells baked treats.

3rd Annual Cruisin’ Into Christmas

The Wayne County Cruisers car club in Screven wrangles rides like Santa does reindeer. The holiday-themed car show, Cruisin’ Into Christmas, hits the starting line for the third time at 10 a.m. on December 10.

Live music, festival food, and more bring the fun. Just after the car show at 4:30 p.m., a holiday parade begins in downtown Screven. Want to include your own car in the parade? Donate a new, unwrapped toy and you can join the seasonal procession.

6th Annual Antiques and Others Car Show

Those behind the wheel of the free show Antiques and Others Car Show promise a fleet of fantastic rides December 11 in Convington at Berry’s Tree Farm.

Sports cars, classics, muscle cars, low riders, motorcycles, and more take up show space. It benefits Relay for Life of Newton County, which raises funds for cancer research. Rev up with some holiday spirit and take home a Christmas tree, wreath, or other holiday decor.

South Carolina
