This 1950s Doo-Whoppin' Sock Hop Cruiz-In is looking to be kill with a trivia trail through the merchants, sock hop, hula hoop and costume contests, and an ice cream social with '50s music spinning all evening long. Watch all those beautiful '50s cruisers you'd wish to be playing back seat bingo in as you sashay through town.

Come meander with your slicked-back hair and folded up leather J, in a poodle skirt, rolled up jeans or maybe just a polka dot scarf. Enjoy the activities in Old Town Cottonwood on Historic 89A. Then spin on over to the Civic Center at 6 p.m. and continue your night with unstAble youth in their production sponsoring the Boys and Girls Club.

The event is sponsored by the Old Town Association, Randall's Restaurant, Verde Valley Community Hospice, and the Manheim Gallery. Arizona Auto Body, KKLD, KVRD, The Manheim Gallery, Verde Valley Community Hospice, and Reese & Sons.

Also coming up, July 11 is the next Second Saturday Art Walk in Old Town.
