Luzerne County Community College
First our first show of the season, we are totally pumped to be partnering with the LCCC Alumni Association for our first ever cruise at the college. 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.
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.
Grotto Pizza Cruise
Grotto Pizza was an awesome cruise last year and we expect nothing less this year. During last years inaugural event, we had cars from as far away as New York state. 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 has been a wonderful club supporter over the years and has agreed to give let us use the entire paved lot this year. Well, lets fill it for him.
Twist and Shake Cruises
Twist and Shake has proven to be one of our longest running venues. We average almost 50 cars at these events and expect even more as our club continues to grow. While at these cruises you can enjoy some great tasting ice cream with your favorite topping.
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.
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 last years.
