Cruise Events

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 multiple Pre-Cruise Car Shows in various sections of town, emphasizing how the cruise has grown into a true community event, leading up to Cruise Day.

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