On Saturday evening, October 5 classic and muscle cars, trucks and even motorcycles packed out the main street of Mansfield.

The inaugural car show and cruise night was sponsored by the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce. The event, which kicked off at 3 p.m., provided fun for all ages. Activities included a bounce around and dunking booth. Also available, vendors selling a variety of food and handmade items.

Emcee Travis Pettus kept the energy up with great music and lively announcements, leading the event with the National Anthem and prayer.

Mansfield’s Chamber of Commerce President Mike Gipson expressed his gratitude to all who helped make the event such a success. Those included the Mansfield junior and senior high volleyball teams and Coaches McKay and Pyles for serving as the event’s judges and manning the dunking booth. Also, Lisa Buckley for the use of the bounce around, the Hayslip family, Karen Gipson, MHS Homecoming Queen Delilah McKusker, Michael and Jennifer Pitts, Police Chief Wayne Robb, Fire Chief Mike Smith and Angela Byers. Merchants who contributed included 71 Express, Ducks Body Shop, Heartland Pharmacy, Amy and Shawn Silvey, Cherokee Tire, Rice Furniture, Furr Babies Grooming, Jamie Johnson and Chambers Bank.

While attendees couldn’t believe this was the town’s “first,” it certainly looks to be an event that will continue to grow, year after year. Mansfield resident Carla Silvey said “how neat to see a car cruise in Mansfield! Mansfield is a great little town and I appreciate everyone who worked so hard putting this car show and cruise together for our town. With this kind of turnout we may have to make more room for the next one!”

After the awards were handed out, and night fell, the cruise was on. From the old to the young, the smiles were proof that memories were made!
