Destination Downtown South Boston’s third annual cruz-in will be on from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday. There will be no charge for admission for visitors or vehicle owners. All antique and classic cars and trucks, motorcycles and special interest vehicles are welcome to participate.
A rain date of Sunday has been set aside if needed.
Main Street (501 south) in downtown will be closed during the hours of the cruz-in. Drivers participating in the cruz-in should enter the cruz-in area from the south via Broad Street turning left on N. Main Street; and from the north via Wilborn Avenue.
Cruz-in officials will be located at the entry and exit points to assist cruz-in participants and visitors.
Drivers will be given registration forms at the entry points, which they should fill in and immediately bring them to the registration table.
There will be lots of door prizes available, and each participant will receive a commemorative dash plaque designed especially for the cruz-in. Driver registration is required in order to receive door prizes and dash plaques.
Come stroll down historic Main Street and enjoy the Victorian architecture and charm of the small town atmosphere. The Downtown South Boston Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is registered as a Virginia Historic Landmark. It is one of the largest and architecturally interesting historic districts in Southside Virginia.
Also come hungry; in addition to several downtown restaurants, there will be on-street food vendors offering barbecue, hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones, cheeseburgers and bologna burgers and other treats. Also, there will be a DJ spinning favorite tunes including oldies.
The public is urged to attend.
“We are going to roll out the red carpet for you and your family, and it’s going to be another fun evening. The first downtown cruz-ins experienced huge participation with close to 300 vehicles for each one,” said Tamyra Vest, Destination Downtown South Boston executive director.
