Fans attending Friday night’s Lugoff-Elgin at Camden football game at Zemp Stadium will have to navigate their way around a portion of Broad Street in downtown Camden which will be closed from, approximately, 5:30 p.m. until past 10 p.m.
Due to the LeMons pre-race block party, the section of Broad Street between Highway 1 and Rutledge Street, will be closed to vehicle traffic.
Advance tickets for game on sale: Fans wishing to avoid the anticipated long lines at the ticket booth can buy their tickets in advance for Friday’s Lugoff-Elgin at Camden football game.
The annual cross-river rivalry will be played on Friday, Sept. 20 at Zemp Stadium in Camden. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Advance tickets, all of which will cost $6 (same as at the gates), will be available at both schools during normal weekday business hours through the end of school on Friday.
Tickets may be purchased at the main office at Camden High School or, at the school’s Wellness Center, located on York Street.
Lugoff-Elgin will have tickets on sale at the school’s Wellness Center which is located behind the north end zone at Lugoff-Elgin Stadium.
LeMons block party takes over downtown Camden: The 24 Hours of LeMons race returns to the Carolina Motorsports Park in Westville on Sept. 21-22; giving less-than-professional drivers the chance to show what they’re made of.
For the second time this year, the amateur car race and all-around good time returns to the Palmetto State.
Before the racing begins, however, the teams of racers and their vehicles will be in downtown Camden for a free block party at which time onlookers can get an up-close glimpse of the cars and meet the drivers. The block party --- which will be held on Broad Street from Highway 1 to Rutledge Street --- will kick off at 6 p.m. and end at or about 9:30 p.m.
The weekend-long celebration begins on Friday, Sept. 20th with racing classes, car inspections, a block party and a car show in downtown Camden. The popular rock band, Ten Toes Up, will give a free concert during the evening on Friday.
LeMons events are held throughout the country to highlight the fun and uncertainty that comes with racing a car stocked with no more than $500 in equipment.
Races will be held on Saturday and Sunday with an awards ceremony scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
All-access spectator passes will be available for $30 at the gate. Kids under 16 get in for free.
