“This popular summer event is fun and appropriate for all ages. We have strived to ensure there is something for everyone. We look forward to another successful summer tradition. So, bring your chairs and dancing shoes, and join us Monday nights this summer,” exclaimed Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt.

The summer tradition of showcasing some of the most beautiful classic cars, vintage trucks and motorcycles became even more popular last year as local live bands and food trucks were added to the festivities. “We thoroughly enjoy creating a series of family-oriented events that make even the most mundane Monday feel less like a ‘typical Monday’ and more like an extension of the weekend,” noted Liz Kerrigan, Parks & Recreation Superintendent and one of the co-organizers of the events. Kerrigan, along with Linda Plays, Director of Human Services, have planned another summer filled with live bands, food, and beautiful cars, and all are invited to join us!!

These events are free and open to the public. Parking is available at nearby municipal lots on Main Street, South Main Street and near River Island Art Park.
