Organizers if the 2007 Harvest Moon Cruise Night are asking care enthusiasts to “bring what you've got from mild to wild” to the Grove Civic Center in Grove on Friday and Saturday.
The “blast-from-the-past” event is expected to bring participants and fans from all over the four-state area to view classic cars on display, cruise Main Street in Grove and enjoy nostalgic music.
On Friday, the event will begin at 6 p.m. with a burn-out competition and an informal cruise for anyone that would like to participate.
“If you have never attended a burn-out, plan to attend this year,” said Lisa Friden, president of the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce. “Watching from the sidelines is just as much fun as participating.”
Registration of cars and bikes will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Judging will begin at noon. There is a $10 registration fee for cruisers wishing to exhibit a car for judging and participate in the official one-hour closed cruise and Main Street Cruise Parade. Those wanting to participate in the Cruise only must pay a $5 fee.
“The committee has worked hard for many months to bring in cars from all over the area and then some,” said Jaime Zellow, Cruise Night chairman. “This year we will be giving 75 plaques in total for the awesome vehicles attending.”
The Award Presentation will take place following the cruise on Saturday in the Civic Center parking lot.
The streets of Grove will be lined with hundreds of cars, motorcycles and people to watch the Main Street Cruise Parade that begins promptly at 4 p.m. Saturday. The closed cruise parade will begin at the Civic Center and end at Cheapo Deapo.
“We invite everyone to come out and enjoy the cars on display and great music from our past provided by DJ-Dink West,” Friden said. “Plan to stay in town for the evening and attend ‘Grove Second Saturdays at Six' in downtown Grove.
“Spend the evening visiting artists on the sidewalks, listening to great musicians, sampling delicious food, shopping in Grove's unique specialty stores and galleries and much more,” Friden said.
