Additionally, the 8th Annual Cruising the Creek Bank Car Show runs at the same time as the Creek Bank Festival. The show takes place in the west end of the park. The show features all types of vehicles including hot rods, motorcycles, and 4-wheel-drive. Trophies are also awarded to top entries. Entrance to the show is free.
