KINGSPORT — It’s a big weekend for car lovers in Kingsport.

The Kingsport Antique & Rod Club will hold two of its major annual events this weekend: the “Super Cruise” on Friday, which serves as a fundraiser for The Ronald McDonald House, and the “Wilderness Trail Run” on Saturday.

Both events are casual, designed to provide a family atmosphere and open to all types of cars.

Both are free for spectators.

The “Super Cruise” begins Friday at 6 p.m. at Kingsport Town Center, its usual spot since 2011.

Donations will be accepted during the event for the region’s local version of The Ronald McDonald House in Johnson City.

Dash plaques will go to the first 200 entrants.

Rain date for the “Super Cruise” is June 1.

More than 250 cars are expected to be displayed at the club’s “Wilderness Trail Run” in downtown Kingsport on Saturday.

Show hours are 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., in front of the historic train station on Main Street and Broad Street.

Cars will not be judged, per se, but special awards will be given.

Registration for cars is $15.

In addition to the display of cars, the “Wilderness Trail Run” also will offer a range of entertainment and dining opportunities.

Games will be available for all ages, a poker walk, drawings for door prizes and live music.

In addition to nearby restaurants in downtown Kingsport, food vendors will be on hand near the show area.

The “Wilderness Trail Run” has been held downtown near the train station since 2003.

Both events draw automobiles from several states and are attended by large crowds.

The Kingsport Antique & Rod Club was organized and formed in 1974.
