The Mill on 66 12th Annual Car Cruise-In
Date & Time
11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has once again teamed up with the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County to host the 21th Annual Car Cruise-In at The Mill. The event will take place Saturday, October 13, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Mill, 738 S. Washington St. in Lincoln.

All are welcome to attend and/or to register their car in the show. Registration is $5 per vehicle, and attendance at the event is free. All members of the Railsplitter Antique Auto Club, other car clubs, and the public are invited to this fun-filled family event. There will be a 50/50 drawing and hot pizza served at the event.

In keeping with the decades-old tradition of music at The Mill, there will be live music beginning at 11:30am, with bluegrass music from local favorites Danny Tackett & The Chicken Pickin’ Orchestra, followed by original/old school country music from Ryan Parcelle of Lincoln. This will be the first Mill performance for Danny Tackett, who with his band will be serving up classic bluegrass music. Ryan Parcellle, who is working on a studio release of his original music, will be performing for his third time at The Mill Museum over the last couple years.

“This will be the first year that the proceeds from the event go to the Railsplitter Antique Auto Club,” said Geoff Ladd, of the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County. "The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has always been fantastic and totally makes this event possible. They have been doing so for over a decade - the entire restoration process of The Mill Museum. This event has raised over $3000 for The Mill over the years. We wanted to give back to them for our appreciation of their support and in the memory of the late Wayne Ackerman from the club, who passed away earlier this year,” said Ladd.

The Mill Museum on 66 opened in April, 2017, and has an extensive collection of items from The Mill, The Tropics, The Pig Hip and additional Route 66 history from Lincoln and Logan County. There is also a gift shop with t-shirts, women’s apparel, pottery, jewelry, postcards and more.

The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has been an active organization in downtown Lincoln and hosts cruise-ins throughout the spring, summer and fall. They're always looking for new members, so come out to the Mill and join up. This club brings a fantastic array of antique autos for display.
