Classic cars and motorcycles, sidewalk sales, rock and roll music, food and beverages and good times await you at the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce’s Main Street Cruise, today until 6:00 in historic uptown Susanville.
“The Chamber is so excited to host this event for the 22nd year,” said Chamber Executive Director, Patti Hagata. “Cruise committee chairwoman, Jessika Johnson has really brought some great new ideas to the event, making it a great fun family event.”
Chrome lovers won’t be disappointed by the display of pre-1980s vehicles, motorcycles, rat rods, low riders, imports and other classic autos entered into the car show.
But the classic vehicles won’t be the only draw to this event. If you have used sports equipment laying around, the Blue Star Moms will take it off your hands to send overseas to our local troops.
The Blue Star Moms will be accepting donations of sporting goods or cash at their booth next to our SusanvilleStuff broadcast booth near the House of Dance Studio and Susanville Real Estate. Cash donations are an important part of the sporting goods fundraiser as it costs money to ship each of the items overseas.
Following the event Main Street will re-open at 6:30 pm and event awards will be given to winners in various categories including Best of Show and People’s Choice.
A street dance, sponsored by the Lassen County Arts Council will host a beer and wine bar and feature local band, Rockasauraus, from 2:00-9:00p.m. on Pancera Plaza.
For those of you who are thirsty for a brew and hungry for some fish and chips the party will continue at Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon. The brewery will be showcasing live music beginning at 9:00p.m.
SusanvilleStuff.com will be live-streaming the Main Cruise event on our homepage from 2:00-6:00p.m. and will be located with the Blue Star Moms, facilitating the drop off of used sports equipment.
So hop in the car right now and head on over to uptown Susanville for the 22nd Annual Main Street Cruise!
