KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A car show, food trucks, live music will all be a part of the second annual Cars for Canines event. Explore Oak Ridge has organized the event as a way to raise money and support for the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter and Anderson County Humane Society.

“We’re excited for this to be our second Cars for Canines event. Last year, we had a turnout of nearly 2,000 people, which led to 6 pet adoptions and a donation of $1250 to the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter and Anderson County Humane Society,” stated Hannah Fatheree, event manager for Explore Oak Ridge.

The event is free, but it is $20 to enter the car show. Classic cars, hot rods, and motorcycles are welcome to enter. The top 25 vehicles will be given awards and all registered vehicles will be entered to win door prizes.
