The cruisin’ season is upon us. Every third Saturday from May through September, the Middlesboro Mall parking lot is filled with jaw-dropping automobiles, music, and family fun for the Cruisin’ the Crater summer event. Cruisin’ the Crater began in 2003 as a small event, but each year has continued to expand and is now a treasured show for car lovers throughout the southeast and across the country. The event is put on strictly by volunteers and donations because there is no money taken by those in charge of setting up the event.
