BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Storms are expected to roll into the area this afternoon and evening. The weather has forced the Bloomfield Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Department to cancel tonight's free classic car show.

Join the fun next Wednesday, and the remaining Wednesdays in August at nights at Universal Technical Institute, 1515 Broad St between 6:00 and 9:00pm.

“We are very excited to include the Hot Summer Nights – Classic Car Cruise Night to our 2019 Summer of Fun,” said Michael Sceurman, Director of Bloomfield Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs. “Offering four more free events that the whole family can enjoy enables us to fulfil our mission. I’d like to thank the Bloomfield Cruisers, Universal Technical Institute and the property management company Shelbourne for partnering with us to keep the Summer of Fun going strong.”
