The air’s getting a little cooler in Shelby, making it a great time to enjoy some outdoor events. This October, you can attend the Neal Senior Center 4th Annual Car Show and Flea Market and the 8th Annual Rhythm and Roots Run. Both are going to be a great time, so get the details and clear your calendar. October is going to be an exciting month.
Neal Senior Center 4th Annual Car Show and Indoor/Outdoor Flea Market
Help fund Meals on Wheels and other essential programs by going to the Neal Senior Center 4th Annual Car Show and Indoor/Outdoor Flea Market. The flea market/vendor fair will be Oct. 27–28, and the car show will be on Oct. 28 at the senior center. The cool thing about this car show is you don’t need to know someone to get in. If you are proud of your wheels, enter your car and show it off to the people who visit. There isn’t a barrier of entry, so anyone can show off his or her wheels.
The flea market is also really cool. Tons of vendors enter, and you never know what you might find. If you love to shop for deals, this is your place.
8th Annual Rhythm and Roots Run
The 8th Annual Rhythm and Roots Run is one of the most unusual runs in the country. Runners World lists it as one of its must-see runs due to the musical heritage. Before racers take off, everyone gets to listen to an Earl Scruggs banjo tribute. The music continues when the race begins. The route is lined with musicians from the local area. They will play you some tunes as you make it through the race. That will keep you pumped up so you can stay on pace.
The race takes place on Oct. 14, and you can run a 5k or 10k. Also, if you play the banjo, bring it along and play your own tribute to the late and great Scruggs.
It’s always a lot of fun in Shelby, and October really knocks it out of the park. With car shows, flea markets, and musical races, it’s a great time to live in this area. Of course, sometimes you might want to branch out and explore something beyond Shelby. That’s when you need a Honda at your side.
