Carter County Car Club's Weekly Cruise-ins Return to Downtown Elizabethton
The Carter County Car Club's weekly cruise-ins will return to East Elk Avenue in downtown Elizabethton, Tennessee, starting May 6 and continuing through the end of October. However, there will be no cruise-in on Sept. 23, the day of the annual Covered Bridge Days event. The decision to keep the cruise-ins at their traditional location came after a sharply divided Elizabethton City Council took four votes before finally getting a majority. All four votes were split 4-3. The council considered various options, including moving the cruise-ins one block north to E Street, limiting the events to one per month, or alternating between E Street and Elk Avenue. Ultimately, the majority vote was to keep the cruise-ins on Elk Avenue.
