Vroom, Vroom!

by Russell Swanson, Exec. Dir., VDID, Main Street Vineland
Attention, all you fans of chrome, fins, and muscle cars. It’s almost time when Cruise Down Memory Lane, one of The Ave’s truly iconic events, comes to The Ave on Saturday, June 10 (rain date: Sunday, June 11) in its customary time slot—5 to 9 p.m.
Newfield National Bank again is the Plaque Sponsor. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
Millions of dollars’ worth of vintage and exotic cars will again line Landis Avenue  This event attracts over 1,000 American cars—over one mile of cars—and is open to street rods, muscle cars, stock or custom classics, rat rods, and cruisers.
The gates will open for participating cars at 4 p.m. at West Avenue and East Avenue and all participating vehicles must enter through the gates. The cars will remain parked for display when the event starts at 5 p.m. Cruising will start at 8 p.m. and all traffic laws will be enforced. The event is open to American marque cars only. They must be 1974 or older, unless it is a highly modified late-model or a car entering with a legitimate car club. No motorcycles, bikes, foreign cars, or partially primed vehicles will be allowed. Period correct cars are allowed upon approval. Admission is subject to the Cruise Down Memory Lane staging and gate personnel. Ineligible vehicles will be towed away at the owner’s expense. No special parking arrangements and no alcoholic beverages will be allowed. Any car club entry must enter the gates with their club.
We’re proud of this event and our collaboration with the Cruise Down Memory Lane committee for their tireless work in putting this three-decade long tradition together that brings thousands of people to The Ave each year.

Hard on the heels of the Cruise will be the fourth annual Running The Ave 5K on June 25. More information on that event will follow soon. There’s still time to register for all of our events and sponsorship opportunities exist for them as well.
