BURRILLVILLE – A car show that follows the rules of social distancing while traveling through the streets of Burrillville will not take place amid this weekend’s expected cold weather, and has been rescheduled from Saturday, May 9 to Saturday, May 23.
Burrillville resident Jim Weicherding says that almost 100 classic car and truck owners have agreed to participate in the upcoming “Outlaw Run,” a different kind of car show, with the dual purpose of raising people’s spirits, and raising funds for a worthy cause.
“That number could drop or get higher,” Weicherding said.
Vehicles in the event will cruise through Burrillville following social distancing rules in place to curb the spread of COVID 19, staying inside their vehicles.
And funds raised will benefit Between the Cracks, a Burrillville-based organization that aims to help families in the community who need help, but don’t qualify for government assistance.
Weicherding has rescheduled the event due to the poor weather conditions expected this weekend, on both Saturday and Sunday.
The event will begin at Broncos Plaza at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 23, and Weicherding said he is still laying out the rest of the route. The rain date for the event is Sunday, May 24.
