Luzerne County Community College

Because it was soooo big last year, we got invited back for two dates this year. We are totally pumped to once again be partnering with the LCCC Alumni Association for our first show of the season. This event allows us spread our reach outside of the Back Mountain and give the opportunity for some folks from the valley to experience our type of fun.  Last year we had the pleasure of teaming up with the Alumni Association for their Fall Craft Show and man did we pack the parking lot. We had around 85 cars and a beautiful Autumn day.

What makes this event even better is that the LCCC Alumni Association will be hosting their annual Flea Market and they have a Facebook Event Page that will promote our car show as well. They have dozens of vendors already signed up and with our involvement this event should prove to be a win, win situation for all.

We will also be returning in the fall for their annual Craft Fair. If last year was any indication, you better come early to get a spot.

Grotto Pizza Cruise

The weather has plagued us the past few years at Grotto Pizza. But despite the mist and overcast skies our members responded.  We have moved this cruise to a much later date in the season to help ensure better weather. This is a special cruise for us because it is the site of our monthly meetings and we are looking to fill the lot with 75 cars this year.

Maybe we can even end the cruise with a nice slow drive around the lake for those that are interested.

Pikes Creek Park Cruises

Continuing with the great tradition of the Hi-Lites Motor Club,  we will be heading back to Pikes Creek Park for two cruises this year.  These cruises are wonderful for the whole family and not just the motor heads. With the park offering Go Carts, Mini golf, a playground and great food, Pikes Creek Park is the ideal location for a successful cruise. The last few years club members have competed in the "Hi-Lites 500" and try to stake their claim to the clubs best driver. Best of all, last year the young dancers came and put on an awesome performance. They literally "Stole the Show".

The owner Gregg and his wife have been a wonderful club supporters over the years and they have once again agreed to give us the whole lot and the grass this year. the way we have been filling his place, he may end up putting us on the track! (lol)


St Pauls Cruise

The cruise at St Paul's Lutheran Church keeps growing and growing.  These guys and gals really know how to put on a cruise. Our forth year teaming up with them brought out about 60 cars, but our cruise is only a portion of the festivities they have happening. Although our attendance keeps growing, there is still a huge amount of space to fill both shaded and center stage.  This could easily prove to be the largest cruise of the year.  With everything they had happening (food, ice cream, raffles, bake sale, SPCA animals,  Fire House, Ladder Truck and so much more) for participants it proves to be a wonderful family focused event.

Meadows Cruise

Year after year, we get excited about this cruise like no other. This event just seems to bring everyone out. If you were with us last August at the Meadows Nursing Center for our annual cruise, then you know just we are talking about when we say "Can it get any better than this?". What a great event we had with about 60 plush rides surrounding the picturesque pond, with grass parking and ample shaded areas to place your chair. We hope this years event can match up to past years.

Back Mountain Bowl 

Last year Back Mountain Bowl opened its parking lot to us and did we show them how a well respected club can fill a huge parking lot. We even had cars parked on the old tennis courts. So many cars so many people and so much fun. They were thrilled to have us back this year, so lets fill it up again. Their food is always to die for and the kids can enjoy bowling and the game room not to mention soft ice cream.

Dallas Fall Festival 

This is a new cruise for our club, but not for many of our members. The Fall Festival has been drawing crowds for years and this year they asked us to organize the car show for the event. It is an honor for Hi-Lites to be given this opportunity and we want to make sure we pack the house on this one. There are many events and vendors selling and showcasing so much. There is entertainment and definitely something for everyone.

Travel Cruises & Special Events

For many of the club members, these travel cruises and special events are their favorite times of the year. Besides the fact that they don't need to set up / clean up, they also only have one car to worry about and that is their own. What a great time we have taking an hour or so drive with some of our best friends and their beautiful cars. Some of these are planned and some are impromptu. Over the years we have visited museums, parades, festivals, county fairs, funerals, restaurants and so much more. To get the insider scoop on these events, come join us for our monthly meetings.
