Pre-Cruise Car Shows

To get everyone in the mood for the daylong procession of vintage vehicles, hot rods and other wheeled contraptions, the Gratiot Cruise Committee hosts five car shows in various sections of town, emphasizing how the cruise has grown into a true community event, leading up to Cruise Day on Sunday, August 5, 2018.

Car Shows run from 5pm to 8pm every night.
