Cruisers Invited to Five Pre-Cruise Car Shows Before Cruising Gratiot in Clinton Township
Once again Cruisers are invited to bring their classics to a week’s worth of Pre-Cruise Car Shows in anticipation of this year’s Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise on August 5, 2012. From July 30 to August 3 cruisers can reach several corners of Clinton Township with their favorite classic vehicle and get their Cruise Passport stamped for a chance at some great prizes.
“The Cruise Passport and the pre-cruise car events are here to stay! Our classic car owners love them and they love the cruise passport. Our businesses like to get involved as well, so it’s a win, win for everyone,” said Tracey Moro, cruise communications director. “We wish we could do more, but we just don’t have the man power. We are very excited about this year’s line up.”
Each business will be doing their own version of a Car Show with the cruise committee helping out. Cruise Passports will be distributed to car show participants at each show and participants can then bring their passport with them to each event after to get it stamped. Businesses will be giving away prizes each night with Cruise Passport prizes given away at the Cruise Car Show at 3 p.m. at Cruise Headquarters.
