The Cleveland MainStreet Cruise-In is Saturday

The MainStreet Cruise-In continues Saturday from 1-6 p.m.  The 18th season opener in April brought over 700 vehicles to the Cleveland Courthouse Square.  Car enthusiasts showed off their vehicles as all types of cars were displayed from classics to special interest and current models.

Downtown streets will be filled with vehicles and spectators are invited to view the cars, shop, have dinner in one of the locally owned restaurants, and enjoy specialty foods such as funnel cakes, kettle corn, and fried apple pies from the vendors. 

Music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s will fill the air to add to nostalgic atmosphere.  

The swap meet will be in the parking lot on Broad Street south of Inman Street.  Spaces are free and are available on a first come bases. 

The Cruise-In is free to enter a vehicle and free to spectators.  It continues the fourth Saturday of each month through October. 

Anyone interested in joining the MainStreet Cruisers Car Club should contact Randy Howard at 595-2912.  For general information call the MainStreet office at 479-1000 or visit the website at www.mainstreetcleveland.com.
