For the past several years, several hundred classic cars have made their way to Lockport and DesPlaines Streets on Tuesday nights, where delighted car enthusiasts enjoyed the display. The event was always very popular and had been instrumental in bringing a lot of people to the downtown area. Since
When Plainfield MainStreet went out of business last year, there was some concern that the popular classic car show would not be held again this year, but the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce has now assumed responsibility for running the show this year.
The Cruise Nights will be taking place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each Tuesdays from June 4th until Sept. 3rd. There will be different themes each week and anyone interested in displaying their classic car can simply show up prior to the 5 p.m. event start and talk to organizers on site in order to find a parking spot. Lockport Street will be closed to vehicle traffic during the show.
You can find more information about Cruise Night themes and sponsorship opportunities by contacting the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce at 815.436.4431.
