October 27-28 Cruise Weekend-

All good things must end and that includes the 17th season of Somernites Cruise.
However, we plan to close out 2017 with a fantastic show featuring a Tri-Five Chevy Showcase and a Gathering of Classic Rods & Customs!

There will be a definite retro feel to the final show of the season and we invite you to bring your custom, classic or street rod for one final blow out of cruisin' fun. Rat rods need to be here too!
Car owners, feel free to bring candy for Trick-or-Treaters of all ages and why not get into the Halloween spirit (get it?) by decorating your ride accordingly?

This is also the show where we draw for the 1955 Chevy Bel-Air Raffle Car and the Gatormade 20' Enclosed Trailer! Do you have your tickets? Time is running out!
