Car Cruise

A car cruise is an event that happens monthly or weekly.  No awards are given.  No vehicles are judged.  No registration fee is charged.  It usually is an open event that allows all kinds of vehicles to attend.  It’s at a location that like minded car owners can gather to meet with other like minded car owners.  There are usually held near eating establishments or retail shopping malls.    Most car cruises are held in the afternoon into the evening.  There are a few that happen early in the morning.  Car cruisers used to drive up and down Main Street or cruise around the town square.  Today, car owners cruise to a specific location to meet with other car owners to enjoy friends they have met and new friends that they will meet.
