At the Blue Fox Drive-In Theater, you can see a double feature, play some arcade games and — for a limited time — pick up a few free tires.
The owners are doing some spring cleaning and they have a mountain of tires behind the drive-in that need to go.
The tires used to ring the go-kart track, which has since been outfitted with newer ones.
Owner Darrell Bratt looked into various ways to dispose of the tires, including regional recycling services and the dump. All cost money — one place wanted $7 a tire. Another outfit said the tires were too dirty to recycle, he said. That one left him scratching his head.
With more than 300 tires to get rid of, Bratt needed to get creative.
“Unfortunately, the warranty was up on them a long time ago,” he quipped. “I can’t exactly return them.”
That’s when his daughter-in-law Kelsey Bratt suggested they give them away.
“Who doesn’t want a tire swing in the backyard?” she said.
She’s quite the crafty crafter and she said the social media site Pinterest offers plenty of other options: planters, chairs, homemade sculptures for the garden. Let your imagination go wild.
“At this point we just need to get rid of these,” she said.
