Abilene : Art Walk/Car Walk

July 11, 2014 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

This month only, ArtWalk moves to Friday night! Car enthusiasts from around the state will be coming to Abilene for the three-day weekend event Hot Abilene Nights, and the special Friday night CarWalk will allow more participants than ever to show off their classic automobiles in the annual Cypress Street car show during ArtWalk.


The Center will stay open after 5 p.m. as usual during ArtWalk, and you can view our exhibits before the car show and until 8 p.m. Cypress Street will close to traffic beginning at 5:30, and registered participants will park their cars along the street for display. There will be music outdoors, too!


When ArtWalk: CarWalk ends at 8 p.m., Hot Abilene Nights will just be getting started! Car exhibiters will have the option of participating in a cruise that Daniel Salsman of Big Country Car Clubs is organizing.  Cruise maps will be provided to all registrants. 


After the cruise, come on back downtown, and settle in for the free outdoor movie, Deuce of Spades, which will start at 9:30 p.m. in the bank parking lot in the 200 block of Cypress Street between Compass Bank and Bogie’s, directly across the street from McKay’s Bakery.  Bring your lawn chairs and coolers and enjoy this independent hot rod film by Faith Granger under the stars.  It’s FREE!
