Preparing for the sixth annual Cruisin’ the Chisholm Trail Car Show


Though last year’s Cruisin’ the Chisholm Trail Car Show had a large turnout, Tammy Johnson, Main Street director, is expecting this year’s show to be almost double in size.
This will be the car show’s sixth annual year Friday and Saturday on Main Street, and is attracting car show competitors and fans from around the country. Most of the competitors come from all over the state of Oklahoma, however, this year many are from Texas and New Mexico.
“Last year we had 167 entries but if weather holds out, we’re expecting about 300,” said Johnson. “We hope the community comes out and supports it because it’s a good thing for Duncan.”
Johnson said this year’s show will feature things people have grown to expect, but will also include some new aspects to keep the show growing. One addition are Off-Road 4x4 vehicles that are definitely used by their owners.
This year will also add a children’s car show 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the 900 block of Main Street in front of First Bank & Trust. Bikes, trikes, wagons, Power Wheels and 4-wheelers are all acceptable entries. Registration will be at 10th and Main. Johnson said the children will get their chance to compete like the adults and show how “mint” they can make their vehicles.
“We have had tons and tons of calls about kids car show,” said Johnson. “I think it’s going to be huge; almost as big as the adult’s car show.”
The children will need to take chairs so they can sit with their vehicles. Like the adult competition, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive trophies, although all children will receive participation ribbons and goodie bags. In all, six trophies will be presented at 2 p.m.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
