SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The good times will roll when Scotch Plains hosts its Cruising on Park Avenue Car Show and Concert on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Dozens of classic cars will be on display, and the evening will also feature by a free live concert by the band “Memphis Rain.”
“We normally get between 50-75 cars,” says committee chairman, Ralph Checchio. “It’s a fun night for all.”
Attendees can vote for prizes for each car, including “Best in Show” and “People’s Choice.” About 10 cars will win awards, Checchio said.
Car enthusiasts and collectors from across the region are welcome to show off their collections and inspire the next generation of motor enthusiasts. There is no charge to enter a car or attend the event. Cars that wish to be entered can be driven to the Scotch Plains Municipal Building at 430 Park Ave., where they will be parked and the owner can register his or her vehicle.
“I invite residents and visitors to come to downtown Scotch Plains, see the cars and get a delicious dinner at one of our restaurants,” Mayor Al Smith said. “It brings people to our beautiful downtown shopping district.”
