CLASSIC CAR CRUISE NIGHTS BRING FAMILY FUN TO DOWNTOWN SOMERVILLE BEGINNING MAY 26


Get Revved to Kick Off Summer this Memorial Day Weekend with Classic Cars, Entertainment, Shopping and Dining!

Classic cars are rolling back into Downtown Somerville for the 28th annual Cruise Nights celebrated all summer long beginning Memorial Day weekend. Classic, vintage and collector cars will line Main Street every Friday night beginning May 26 through Labor Day for one of the largest events of its kind in America.

What began in 1989 as a small gathering of local auto aficionados has grown into an event featuring more than 100 classic and collector cars from all over the Tri-State area. As the popularity of Cruise Nights has grown, so has its attendance. More than 4,000 people turn out every Friday night to enjoy captivating cars, mingle with friends, browse boutiques and dine outdoors.

“Main Street comes alive with the buzz of the crowd and the sound of the engines,” said Beth Anne Macdonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance. “Cruise Nights are a kaleidoscope of colorful paint jobs, makes, and models that span the entire automobile era.”

According to Macdonald, what makes Downtown Somerville Cruise Nights unique is the location: “The event isn’t isolated in a parking lot, strip mall or field. Instead, Downtown Somerville’s vibrant setting provides the perfect backdrop for a fun summertime night on the town.
