It’s time for the annual Cruizin’ 64 Car Show and Chili Cook-off and Sallisaw Main Street Inc. and the Chamber of Commerce have made big plans for this year’s event.
The fun will kick off at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, and will run until about 10 p.m. that day. The event will be capped off with live music at the new gazebo outside Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library.
Hosted by Sallisaw Main Street and the chamber, the event will also feature pop-up shops, a cornhole tournament, a carnival and more.
After the day’s events, live music will be provided by Dirt Road Therapy, which will take the stage at 6 p.m., followed by the Wanda Watson Band at 8 p.m.
Carol Brown, an administrative assistant with Sallisaw Main Street, said Friday that more participants are needed for scheduled events, such as the pop-up shops, cook-off and the first-ever Cruizin’ 64 cornhole tournament.
Brown said that on Friday, Oct. 11, Main Street will also be selling Indian tacos for $7, which will include a drink.
Taster kits for the chili cook-off will be on sale at 11 a.m. the day of the event. To sign up for the cook-off, participants can pick up a registration form at the chamber or call Brown at (918) 776-7920.
