The Mainstreet Cruise-In’s 20th season opening is this Saturday from 1-6 p.m. in historic downtown Cleveland around the Courthouse Square.
The open-air event offers plenty of space for social distancing while classic car enthusiasts see restored cars and other special interest vehicles as they line the streets of downtown. Last season nearly 500 vehicles a month lined the courthouse square and surrounding streets, with some participants traveling from several hours away.
Stroll the streets, 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 fills the air, adding to nostalgic atmosphere.
The swap meet is in the parking lot on Broad Street south of Inman Street. Spaces are free and are available on a first-come basis.
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.
